Pacific Seafood BBQ House
8/240, Victoria Street,
Best roast duck, roast pork and roast meats in Richmond!! Went to restaurant late in the evening, as most roast goodies were sold out, ordered other dishes instead. Dishes ordered were just ok, not extraordinarily good and slightly pricy. Will be back only for the roast goodies!!
Spinach with Salted Egg & Century Egg $21.00
A nice unique taste combination - Salty egg, alkaline century egg and spinach!
Dried Scallop, Chicken Mince, Egg Tofu Hot Pot $27.00
A gluey dish with few strands of dried scallop and lots of chicken mince. Dried scallop is the hero of this dish. The quality intense dried scallop flavour was missing!!

Box Hill, Victoria 3128
Tel: (03) 9890 2966
A very popular restaurant in Box Hill. Love the food. Always top quality and freshness.
Unfortunately dining experience on Saturday night was a huge letdown. The rice vermicelli in both Bu'n with Char-grilled Lemongrass Chicken and Singapore Noodle were in broken little pieces. Not quality cooking. Left restaurant feeling very disappointed. Hope kitchen was just having a bad night, an off day!!

Nice deco. It's an Asian, Malaysian and Thai restaurant. The dinning experience from the 4 dishes ordered for the evening was hugely disappointing. Non-conventional style cooking. Will not be back.

Golden Dragon Palace Restaurant

Up market Chinese restaurant. Beautiful Chinese deco. Friendly service. Quality food. This is line dance group's second visit to the restaurant. A great time was had by all. Out of the 8 Yum Cha dishes, the steamed chicken buns were disappointing, were rather dried! Group will still be back!
