Have been here twice now. Basic decor but unbelievable service and food. Do yourself a favour and order the prawn toast. The lady that works there is very friendly and we have not had a bad dish yet. Plus it's BYO. Winning.

This place hands down is the best chinese place in Melbourne! The food is always top notch, and the family that work here are so polite and friendly - they make every visit enjoyable. I definitely recommend the fried chicken/pork in spicy salt - absolute favourite. While the interior is not that great, it is comfortable and quiet and homely.... More

We have been coming to this place for over 35 years so they must be doing something right. Decor is not out of Home Beautiful but meals are decent sized and delicious. They make their own dim sims and they are so soft and tasty, service is friendly, you can BYO wine and they even do take away...

We love the way they make their salt'n'pepper squid as it's become a family favourite. Their fried rice is quite good, too.

This is my favourite Chinese restaurant and I have been buying their food for over 20 years! The decor isn't fancy but the food is delicious and very well priced. The service is certainly quick and their HOME MADE dim sims are the most delicious I have ever had. They are also very friendly. There are two Chinese restaurants side... More

Sticky tables are not a good sign. Salt and pepper squid was 70% deep fried batter and it was down hill from there. The trip to the loo just about required a GP consult the flowing day. Hey, you get what you pay for.

The service from this tiny restaurant is wonderful, as is the food. We have been here every time we have visited Melbourne, and it never ceases to amaze me how hard the owner works to make you happy. It's a BYO too.

This place is amazing! Take a seat and watch the amount of take aways that walk out the door every night. The food is fantastic especially the chicken soup with homemade prawn dumplings!!
