It’s not often that I eat out. It’s even less often that I attempt to do so with three small children. So tonight we thought we’d test out the children’s table manners and headed off to China Town restaurant in Weston.
Arriving before 6pm but without a booking, we managed to get a table and then watched the small room fill up fast. We weren’t the only ones with small children. Although possibly the most optimistic, thinking we could have a relaxed dinner with a six year old, four year old, and two year old. Anyhoo…
Service was cheerful and quick. The menu is exactly what we expected and wanted from a family-friendly Chinese place – plenty of under $15 mains to choose from, lots of familiar dishes. For under $65, we had two serves of spring rolls, chicken and sweet corn soup, honey prawns (nice big prawns), vege chow mein, beef in blackbean, and a metric ton of rice. All very nicely done dishes, enjoyed by kids and adults alike. It’s BYO only if you like a beer/wine with your dinner.
Highlights of the night: six year old telling me she wants to use chopsticks next time, and her fortune cookie message which advised her to try eating something she’d never had before.
