Great food with plenty of options depending on the size of your hunger. Biggest surprise was the salad. Not what I was expecting and should have left more room for it. Still, tasted great cold the next day.

Service was just ok. We were seated quickly but in a back corner of the restaurant. We had to call the waiter over whenever we wanted anything, even though we told them we were wanting to check the menu to order some more. We ordered twice and unfortunately only some of the items we ordered never went through to the kitchen. We sat and waited for 20 mins for the other items and nothing turned up so we got up and paid. Seems the rest of the order didn’t make it through. The manager did apologise. Nice place but their wait staff let them down this time. Food is good though. Not sure we would bother trying again.

Wow! Amazing food and service with a smile. Mr Hizolas had amazing food - comparable to the best dumplings we've had in Sydney. Our waiter was kind and remembered my daughters birthday which made it extra special for her.

The food is amazing however the service wasn’t great. We would’ve spent so much more money if the service was more attentive. We had to ask a few times for one of the diners to have cutlery, we ordered a soup dish and no spoons came out with it. We also had empty drinks on the table for most of the night and had to chase a waiter down a few times to order more drinks and water

What's not to love, we got the banquet which was great value and so much food. The food was amazing, stand out dishes were the wagyu and the garlic butter prawns.

The food was fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. The service was good (attentive but not intrusive) even on a very busy night. It was quite noisy but totally expected for a busy Friday crowd.

We had a table of 4 of us. We were one of the first to arrive and it got pretty busy after that which was fine although we were waiting 2 hours for our meals. We got 1 entree and then half an hour later another entree, no one really cared to ask if we
We’re ok. I had to hail the waitress down to ask for another drink.
After 1.5hours she asked if we want any more food but we hadn’t even received all our food yet. We wanted to order more
But didn’t want to wait another hour for it to come out.
One of our friends did come in half way through to say hi, which I know wasn’t allowed but the guy quickly came to yell at us, was probably the most attention we got all night.
People Beside us had come before us and gone and we hadn’t received any food at all, very disappointing.
Otherwise the food was amazing!!

This place is fantastic! We were a group of 10 dining at lunch and we wanted somewhere we could have a proper catch up.
There was good music playing in the background and the staff were so friendly and couldn’t help us enough with one dietary requirement for a mumma who was breastfeeding.

My fourth visit and definitely won’t be my last.

Wow what an amazing experience from the such delicious food - and thank you to the team member who was able to assist us with our choices - his friendliness, service and personality were outstanding.
One small suggestion would be that they replace the “eating” plates a bit more so that you get to taste each course with its particular sauce rather than the sauce served from the previous course.
We will definitely will be returning

Overall we enjoyed everything we had. The dumplings came out a little cold but still tasty.
Some of the portions were on the smaller side for the price but definitely would go back again as food was nice. Highly recommend the Bao,
And Honey lemon chicken :)

Lovely meal - the Emporers feast is a lot of food - the sizzling steak was awesome, the lotus roots are a lovely way to begin your meal with a delicious cocktail. My cocktail recommendation would be a "by the sea" Service from or waiter on Saturday evening was great - friendly, good suggestions, attentive

Great food - really good value for the $55 buffet. There was too much food and we left a large plate and rice.
Waiter was very accommodating and looked after us well.
Would go again, I do recommend and we had a great night.
