My 8 year old coeliac daughter especially appreciated your Gluten free menu. The service and other food else was great too! We'll be back again soon!
great pork and prawn dumplings excellent chive omlette the quality of all dishes was excellent friendly service from Brian our waiter a great night for the ten of us
Great food, especially the chilli oil dumplings, lots of choice to suit everyone. Well priced. Dinner for 4 with wine and beers came in at about $40 a head. excellent service.
We were a large group dining, and were happy with the service and the food. I had the gluten free chicken and prawn dumplings, and recommend them.
Good value restaurant. Ordered a banquet for a group. Much more attention could be paid to cleanliness of bathroom areas for guests. Vegetarian fried rice had some cubes of ham in it - had to request a replacement. Also, I would suggest inclusion of the pork buns or dumplings into the banquet menu. One thing I would recommend at this restaurant is their steamed pork buns.
Mao please has to be one of the better dumpling places in the city/ china town. Orders are done quickly and the dumplings are always delicious!
