FOOD?

The Hawthorn branch seems to be the best out of the restaurant chain (according to mum). My mum and dad used to frequent the Hawthorn Petaling Street quite often but have been visiting there less so in the past six months. Mum says that the standard of food has dropped but dad disagrees. I think the quality of food varies from day-to-day and also depends on what you order.

I love ordering the Mee Goreng as the wok flavour truly comes out in the dish. I would also recommend the Hakka style egg noodles with belly pork. Mum recommends the fish fillet noodle soup. Lots of oily goodness to leave your lips greasy and your stomach lined!

SERVICE?

Service is as expected for the amount you’re paying per dish. So don’t expect a smile or all your dishes to come out at the same time. At the Glen Waverley restaurant I finished my meal before my friend’s meal came out. They want you in and out as fast as possible.

AMBIENCE?

A popular restaurant within the Asian community which is a good sign considering the cuisine. Always noisy chatter as per your usual Chinese – under $10 per meal – restaurant.

VALUE?

Decent sized meals with an average price of around $8-$9 per dish. Takeaway is available too!

BOOKINGS?

The Petaling Street restaurants are usually always busy. With such a quick turnover of tables no wonder they can afford to open yet another branch in the middle of Melbourne city (on Swanston Street).

As the food is delivered quickly to each table, patrons are in and out of the restaurant in no time so you won’t have to wait too long if the restaurant is currently full.

    Agree with the service note. Last time we went for a family meal there, I got my meal about 5 minutes after the other 3 family members got theirs. What’s more, Dad found a piece of thin clear plastic the size of his thumbnail in his dish. However, he has no problem returning to PS because the cost of his meal was waived once this was brought to their attention… and for the typical cost-conservative Asian Dad, free food is always welcomed – whether hazardous or not.

    Glen Waverley one is the best imo.
    Crispy chicken with tomato rice or beef curry dry noodles goes down pretty well.
    The claypot rice drop noodles are tasty but don’t think they should cost $11.50.
