We did a hike near by and noticed this restaurant, we though that we would drop in and have an afternoon tea with scones and Tea.
However after looking at the menu we decided to have the calamari with fried rice. The meal was nice, they had a great wine and beer list, so we decided to have a Chinese and Japanese beer both were cold refreshing.
We were lucky enough to have a booth seat which then turned into a swing seat which was a bonus. The staff were very friendly and always had a smile.
We liked the quiet atmosphere with nice Asian music playing in the background,which added to the relaxing atmosphere.
We also noticed a little play area for the kids to go and play in. We did not go for a walk in the gardens, but they did look well loved and well designed.
We will have to return after our next walk for those scones

We had the pleasure of enjoying lunch there using a Groupon Voucher - despite what was on the voucher (titled Asian Fusion Lunch) we were kindly given the option of a selection each from the main menu + a glass of wine. As it turned out it was indeed the best way to go. Meal portions and presentation outstanding. I had Signature Lamb Fillet with Cumin, Chilli and Onion (caught between the choice of pork ribs or lamb - our very sweet waitress suggested the latter and I was very happy I accepted her advice) whilst my partner had Kung Pao Chicken with peanuts. We were both well satisfied with our dishes. Mine in particular was sensational - normally I am not akin to hot spicy dishes but this was just right. Extremely tasty and fulfilling. The restaurant has been under new management since November 2017. We had been there before some years ago for breakfast and at that time were not impressed. This time around was the complete opposite. Very friendly and welcoming. You can eat outside or inside. We chose outside even though it was a very warm day. Glad we did it just added to the overall ambience of the venue set in beautiful green/treed surroundings. Another positive all Asian complement in the kitchen which is clearly visible to all and sundry. Very clean all round. Plenty of parking off road. All in all a great experience. Highly recommended to local &/or visiting clientele from interstate or overseas. Will certainly return. New management have nailed it.

Dined here on a Saturday evening with friends.
How nice to have a great Chinese restaurant back in the hills.
The food was absolutely outstanding and good value. We shared a number of entrees and mains and they were all of extremely high standard.
We will be back.

the sign out front read breakfast. we just simply wanted breakfast. And when we sat at our table and asked, they stared at us oddly?? even though they don't serve breakfast at all, we thought we were going crazy!! They could give us a scone! But we were looking for breakfast. As the sign stated

Dear customer,

Sorry for the unpleasant experience.
Since we just took over the business. The previous owner use to open for breakfast. We are open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner at this stage.
We still waiting for the new sign to be made, sorry again for the mistake!
