Absolutely delicious food.
The fried rice is still fluffy inside and isn't bone dry. The Mongolian beef had a great savoury tang, the honey king prawns were well balanced between savoury and sweet, and their dumplings are incredible. Portions are large and are a great price too (Partner and I were both quite hungry, and even with king prawns, was under $50!)
Will certainly eat here again

Good food clean and well-kept restaurant with a warm welcome and reasonably quick service. relaxed atmosphere and complimentary snack prior to ordering your meal. Tasty food and generous serving at moderately priced rates. Take away as well as table serving.

Chinese, cooked with a lighter touch. Delicate flavours and not so much of the ''in your face'' heavy flavours of many Aussie Chinese Restaurants. A little more authentic. We are locals - this is our Chinese restaurant of choice in this city.

We're visitors from Sydney and our friends, who are local, took is to what was in their opinion the best Chinese restaurant in Bathurst.
The service was friendly and the waitstaff helpful, but the food itself was infortunately westernised and too sweet. It was as if we'd walked back in time to the Chinese restaurants my parents took me to in the 1960s. Maybe my taste buds have become accustomed to the profusion of authentic ethnic food available in Sydney, but I was a tad disappointed that this positive trend had not yet reached over the mountains.
