Restaurant Review: Taste of China, Cairns


During a holiday in Cairns, Northern Queensland some friends and I were walking along and spotted the sign for 'Taste of China' and our quest for somewhere interesting to eat was finally settled.


With great excitement I stepped inside.  
We were greeted warmly by the owner and escorted to sit at our table for three. 

Steamed Dim Sims - a favourite entree




The oysters were HUGE! Here's a side-by-side shot for comparison


The more I explored the restaurant the more enamoured I was. This mural really caught my attention.




There was also a tank with mud crabs




And another with lobsters. GIANT lobsters!



My friend and I decided that we would buy a lobster and have it cooked 
in 'special sauce' and share it rather than get separate main meals.  
When the lobster tails came out we were amazed it came from the one lobster!





And of course we had a course of Asian greens with oyster sauce. Yumm!



They also had fish and abalone. Next time!


I just had to get a photo with the screen. I'd love to buy one. 


More photos of Chinese decor for a special friend of mine.
