I read the mixed reviews, wanted to experience for ourselves, bought takeaways, spring rolls were excellent, garlic prawns had no flavour, honey chicken ordinary at best, special rice had very little flavour, overall very unsatisfying meals, wouldn’t go again,

We stayed for lunch and dinner and were very impressed with the service and quality of the food. Very nice place to visit.

I agree with the last review. Whilst the place is full of locals, I wouldn’t agree with the reviews and we won’t be rushing back. It’s like that really average ‘Australian’ Chinese - very bland and fake colours and flavours.

I went here with my partner after the good reviews that we have been reading but we were a bit disappointed. The Mongolian lamb didn’t have much taste while the sauce was to much. The snack platter wasn’t really fancy and nice either. The prawns...were good but the service pretty unfriendly. Maybe we took the wrong dishes and or wrong table/night ? Our neighbours were getting great service with on table carving and stuff like That but they didn’t really care about us. It was overpriced for what we gotMore

All too often where a dining venue has a captive group of consumers the service and food is obligatory, well not at the Cove restaurant which is part of the Coral Cove apartments in Bowen There is the most friendly staff who go out of...their way to explain their variety (which are many) of dishes The food was served quickly and as to the quality and quantity you wouldn’t hope to find any better Some people who have done negative reviews on here must have been having an off day All I can say is try it for yourselves you wont be disappointed!More

Love the service; love the food. Highly recommend. I ate the seafood curry and my wife Kate had a vegetarian dish.

Dinner was absolutely beautiful! All the flavours were wonderful. We had rainbow beef (spicy, saucy and absolutely scrumptious), honey chicken (delicious), Mongolian beef (tender and terrific) and a lovely lamb green curry. The staff were very accomodating and kind, we are definitely coming back!

Back here for a birthday tea. Always get good solid Chinese here. Tonight we had four dishes plus fried rice and coconut rice. We had the Mongolian lamb and they really nailed the sauce. The pork in Peking sauce which was delicious. The chicken basil...and chilli was very tasty. And the not to be missed honey prawns. Service is efficient without being intrusive. The total food bill was $120 which was worth every cent. Love dining here.More

extremely rude restaurant staff! We stayed for a night to celebrate our engagement, went to order a cocktail and the man very rudely said they are closer on Tuesday no drinks! The woman was too busy on the phone to even acknowledge us. Last time...we come to this place terrible customer service!More
