What Our Clients Say


We have been a couple of times and had great food so this time we treated ourselves to the chef’s degustation menu. Every dish was beautifully prepared and presented and wonderfully delicious. I especially liked the Hopkins River grass fed eye fillet and the crispy stuffed chicken. I even enjoyed the lamb – a meat I don’t usually like. And of course, the dessert taster plate is amazing. Highly recommended.

Carol S

Quality food with an exceptional wine list and excellent service. This hidden gem is much better than Silks at Crown Casino and the Flower Drum in the City. Quality food that easily surpasses those over rated 5-star restaurants in the city. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Ian M

The menu is delicious and standard of food presentation is high. We have also trialled the take out service which never disappoints! Regular customers and would recommend for anyone looking to try some wonderful Chinese dishes!

Caroline M

Had a wonderful evening, the food was great. We ordered a banquet and as l am vegetarian they were happy to accommodate. The service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was served with a smile. Would recommend it. Will be absolutely going back.
