495 Ballarat Rd, Sunshine
I’ve always drove past here so I finally decided to actually come in. Came in early on a Tuesday night for dinner and it was empty, the decor was cute with lanterns hanging from the roof and background music had old songs playing.
Finally decided what to order (we had no idea) so went for Banquet A (as there was only two of us, this was the only banquet we could get). I ordered the Durian smoothie (uses fresh durian and it was YUMMY!!) and M got the strawberry ice blend with jelly (very refreshing!).
First up was the chicken and corn soup. To be honest it was plain and nothing special about it. The chicken had no taste to it at all and there wasn’t any salt and pepper on the table for use to season it with.
Spingrolls with fish sauce came out and that’s such a hit at every restaurant and it was very good. The fish sauce was a bit too sweet for my liking but I really enjoyed the springrolls.
Next entree was chicken skewers and this wasn’t a big hit for me. The chicken was dry and didn’t hit the spot.
The mains were next with special fried rice, beef in black bean sauce and sweet and sour pork! The only one which I really enjoyed with the sweet and sour pork. The batter was so sweet and crispy. To be honest, there wasn’t anything special about the special fried rice and the beef in black bean sauce could have been much better….
The final dish was just vanilla ice cream with two pieces of peeled lychees. Very disappointed as I feel there wasn’t any effort in them whatsoever.
This is a malaysian place which I probably wouldn’t reccommend to people but it is one of the cheap places you could go to.
