Food Service Testimonials

Thank you for your hospitality in serving our group lunch and breakfast. It was a great pleasure to stay and have meals at your restaurant. All our team members were happy with the services.

Brother Hockey Clubs - QLD

As a local resident, my family hardly found any decent Asian Restaurant in Cairns. Most restaurant food services were not very good and charged way too expensive. Your restaurant has offered a very good authentic Chinese and Asian cuisine menu at a very affordable price. We are highly recommended your restaurant to all local Cairns residents and travellers to Cairns.
