From food courts to fine dining restaurants, Australia has a large array of Chinese food on offer. Whether it’s traditional or a fusion, we can agree that most Australian’s love Chinese food. When I’m asked where to find the best Chinese, I never hesitate on my choice.
It doesn’t look like much on the outside. If I didn’t already know where it was, I might not have found it at all, but sometimes looks can be deceiving. The interior of the restaurant is beautifully decorated with traditional Chinese decor and has a chilled atmosphere with a good ambiance.
There were three in our party so we ordered one plate of Honey Chicken ($15.90), one plate of Chicken Chow Mein ($15.90), one plate of Garlic King Prawns ($17.30) and a large Fried Rice ($7.50), all to share.
The waitress was friendly, the food took no more than 10 minutes to arrive and the presentation was great. The Garlic King Prawns came to the table sizzling in a cast iron pan; the mouthwatering sauces were boiling away and the steam drifted up through the restaurant. The aroma was enticing and the portion sizes were generous.
The Honey Chicken was fresh, crispy and delicious. The sauce was sticky and the chicken was tender and melt in the mouth. The Chicken Chow Mein was flavoursome and the meat was tender. The vegetables were perfectly coated in the sauce and were obviously fresh. The noodles were crispy and crunchy and they added a perfect texture to the dish, balancing out the tender chicken.
The Fried Rice had a generous amount of meat and the rice was cooked well. It was piled high on the serving plate and the vegetables added a bright pop of colour to the dish.
This restaurant is the perfect example of a ‘hidden gem’. This is a place that I would recommend searching high and low for. A place that offers so much goodness that it would be a shame to never try it!
