We bought food to take back to our motel. Restaurant was very busy, and we were told there would be a 30 minute delay. Came back 30 mins later and waited a further 5-10 mins, but food was worth the wait. Good quantity, good quality.

Always good for eat in meals with others or for takeaways. Just wish there were more traditional Chinese vegetables in the dishes.

My parter and I ordered the red curry - it was disghusting and inedible. This is the first time we have ever walked out without eating our meal. I would also advise not to visit the toilets before your meal

Combined fish and chips and Chinese menu. Is a takeaway or dine in. Locals rate this as best in town. We were not disappointed

Quick and tasty. Lots of meat in dishes and not overcooked vegetables. Pleasant service. Not cheap but neither is the food!
