Have eaten here many many times over the last few years, including the previous location. Fantastic food, always have the Banquet C. Have noticed a downhill slide over the years. Banquet C used to be a personal experience, with the trolley bought out with dishes prepared in front of you and lobster viewed prior to service. Not any more. Last two visits staff were polite but impersonal, made us feel rushed as if to get us out quick. Banquet C should be an experience not a rushed experience. Only reason I would now to return is the food which is still great but not like it used to be, maybe due to the above mentioned problems.

The waiters were gorgeous and a little run off their feet but still very helpful when required, and with a smile. Most of the food was tasty, the vegetables too raw for our liking, the soup cold plus it was overpriced that was our experience but still the restaurant was busy even for a Wednesday night.

We dined here quite late on a recent trip to Melbourne so it wasn't busy, but despite the hour we were given exceptional service. Dining as a group of 4 we ordered the banquet which was huge and a great variety of flavours/foods. You definitely need to have a big appetite but you won't be disappointed.

We were here for dinner June 23, 2016. Ordered scallop dish under entree, which we were told meant "smaller portion" and the waitress recommended we add vegetables to the dish. Scallops with ginger and shallots is the name of the dish. Could hardly taste the ginger and scallop was chewy. Adding the vegetables added 20 plus dollar to the 12 dollar dish!! Mushroom dish under vegetarian was good. Rice noodles Singapore style was ok. What was disgusting and was not the fault of the restaurant per se was a couple sitting behind us. As we were eating our meal, the man started clearing his throat loudly and I mean disgustingly loudly to bring his phlegm up. Spat it in the linen napkin. Ruined the dinner for us. They were oblivious and I guess thought there was nothing wrong. This happened several times and after that we felt sick to our stomach. Our waitress might have come to tell him not to do that. We were not sure as we don't speak Chinese. Overall, even if that grotesque incident had not happened, we still would not have rated the experience a memorable one. I think the restaurant does not care and doesn't anticipate having repeat customers. So as long as visitors pour into the casino and eat there one time, that would be just fine for the restaurant.
No incentive for them to improve food or service
