I reckon this Chinese Restaurant must be close to 50 years Plus in existence. That’s a long run. Down a few stairs to a pretty basic sort of place. But remarkably the food and style has lasted all this time. So the dinner we shared...More

Guess there's a good reason they've been around for so long. Standard fare but done well. Only gripe is their website appears to be out of date because everything is $2-$3 more than their PDF menu. Pork spare ribs were well cooked and coated.

Its a good place for a family dinner. Ivy is always very welcoming and the kids just love her. In all the times that we have eaten there over the 10+ years we have never had a bad meal.

The food is excellent but the service is very unfriendly and unwelcoming. Not a nice atmosphere. When I arrived I had to say hi to get the person at the front counters attention. I stood right in front of him and was ignored. Such a...More
