Lunch dishes are good value, the chicken dumplings were delicious and so was the pork belly dish! Wouldn't recommend the sichuan chicken, nothing special.

Loved the calamari, the pineapple in the fried rice and LOVE that you have HF DF options

We dined from the ‘Feed Me’ menu which consisted of a lot of deep fried food. When we requested more dumplings we were told that we cannot select what we’d like more of and the chef can only chose. We were literally overloaded with plates of deep fried chicken, deep fried calamari and fried rice.
The waiter then brought the bill and when I asked if dessert was included he said yes, we forgot to bring it. Our only option was to take away our ice cream.
Will not be back.

Family dinner to get out and celebrate my sons birthday. The take on the food is fantastic, excellent food quality, great service and we like to support local buisness that deserve our support. Keep up the great work, but please get rid of the plastic water jugs, it leaves a plastic taste in the water, go glass jugs.

I enjoyed lunch with a friend at this restaurant recently. The quality and price was superb. I had an entree, main and red wine for $20. It is important to book.

The food is always amazing here. Absolutely god dam delicious! Partner is coeliac and they always cater to him too. Staff are excellent and the food comes out so quickly. The only negative I can say is that we had a table outside and the heaters were broken so I was freezing. Still worth it for the yummy food though. :-)

Food was excellent! But a little concerned about how close my friend and I were sat next to strangers at the table next to us, social distancing rules were ignored here. Nonetheless we really enjoyed our time and food.

Nice ambience, friendly efficient service and reasonably authentic tasting food. My wife is Chinese and she thought it was ok too. Absolutely LOVE that they have Tsing Dao beer in 640ml bottles and reasonably priced for a restaurant. I liked it so much I drank 2 of them.........and my wife drove home :) We'll go back again.

We had a reservation and were waiting outside, but felt like the staff forgot about us. There were only two, and they seemed very busy and maybe a little confused.

The food came quickly, but was disappointing. We specifically requested the extra spicy famous poached fish. The dish that came was very, very mild with almost no chili or sichuan pepper taste. The broth was thickened with corn starch in a mess of cheap bean sprouts, with very little fish. Very disappointing and out of line with other sichuan places I've eaten at.

Duck fried rice had almost undetectable amounts of duck in it - but lots of pineapple??

The spicy fried chicken was too salty, over-cooked and with huge amounts of breading around the meat.

Overall was not a great experience for something that I was really looking forward to taking my spice-loving friend to- I'm confused on how this place has so many positive reviews.

We were recommended this restaurant by family,

The calamari was rubbery,
Crispy chicken not crispy but oily
Traditional fried rice tasted as if someone had poured maple syrup over the rice

Quite different to the two other reviews from family members. Must have been having a bad night the night we went

Food is amazing, staff are very helpful, friendly and courteous. The seating is a little cramped and it is quite busy and noisy especially from the kitchen although the experience was made great with the beautiful food and friendly owner.
Be sure to book on a Saturday night.
Will we definitely be going back

The food at Sichuan Papa was fantastic, authentic Sichuan style food. Just the right amount of heat, but dial it up if you like it really hot.

Service was terrible, and very slow. Had to call waiter over and wait multiple times to order and order more drinks. Food, once or arrived was very nice, but not overly substantial for the price.

Food is great however service is horrible. Entrees did arrive after the main course. The main course did not come at once and tables that booked after us were served with food before us. All together a rather disappointing experience.
