We originally wanted to eat sushi, but we weren’t lucky in any of the restaurants we visited for a variety of reasons. So we ended up in Hongfa, which we knew was a good restaurant and it was close. Until we could eat in a...restaurant, we brought a lot of delicious Laksa home from there. Now we finally had the opportunity for a comfortable, relaxed restaurant lunch again. My partner stayed with the Seafood Laksa, but I wanted to try something different, so I ordered a combination of roast duck and fried pork. The sight was mouthwatering already, and when I tasted, it didn’t disappoint. We got our order fast, and both of us were satisfied with our dishes. The prices were reasonable, as always.More

We have a small group and we were given plenty of time to chat and select our food. The food was very nice and we had a relaxing and enjoyable time.

What a terrible meal We ordered satay beef......what we got was totally tasteless....it wasn't even satay sauce didn't even look like it either...to this point I really don't know what was served but it was really awful The same with the other dish which was...pork and plum sauce. If they want to serve up dishes like this then they should close down Heavens know where the write ups were done because what we had was disgustingMore

After our first visit, we were delighted with this restaurant and decided immediately, that we have to go back. Luckily Dee Why has soo many excellent restaurants, that it took more than half a year to dine in Hongfa again. Since the sizzling Mongolian Lamb...was so delicious at the first time, now I had to repeat that order. No disappointment. It was mouthwatering as ever. My partner had a special Nasi Goreng if I remember well, a chicken and seafood one. I had to stop him, to lick his fingers. We chose Dim Sim as a starter that I never tried before. It was possible to ask it deep fried. It was yum-yum. One more thing that I have to keep in my mind. The portions were so generous that from the doggy bags we had a second dinner. It was another discovery. The Mongolian Lamb with Nasi Goreng is an excellent combination. The service isn't too fast, but acceptable and polite, and the prices are reasonable.More

On a trip just recently back to Australia, we were craving some Chinese food. Came across Hongfa Chinese on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try. Well, we wen for dinner and were throughly impressed. Won ton soup, fried rice, san choy...bow, stir fried beef, Chinese omlette, all very delicious. The food was so good that we decided to go back a few nights later. This time we ordered again what we had a few nights earlier, again very delicious. However we also decided to order the Garlic king prawns. Now, this is when things turned ugly. What we were presented with was horrible frozen prawns out of a plastic bag that had no flavour whatsoever. They were so tasteless that we ate two and left the rest on the plate. Surely the owners must realise that these prawns are just horrid.More

The location is very convenient. A few steps away from Woolworth supermarket on Oaks street. We passed it several times, but never had a closer look, since from outside the restaurant doesn’t show too much. One night, when the place where we headed wasn’t open,...we thought, let’s try this Hongfa. When you step in, there is a very proper restaurant, with several tables and a very-very impressive menu. They offer so many tempting dishes that it is hard to decide what to choose.When I had a glimpse on my favorite Sizzling Mongolian Lamb, the decision was made. My partner ordered a Filet Steak Szechuan style. After the first bites, we decided, that maybe this was our first, but definitely not the last visit. Both of our dishes were excellent, the service fast and polite. Especially one of the waitresses was very friendly. She asked our names, and I had to write down the mine for her since it is unusual. That I didn’t tell her, that I’m going away for five months, so my next visit only possible five months later on. It will be a big challenge to her to remember me.More

My partner had noticed this fairly small restaurant close to Woolies on Oaks Ave. so we decided to give it a try. As you enter there is a cook who seems to look after takeaway orders as the main kitchen is out of sight in...the back. Then there is a cashier and maybe ten tables with between 2 and 4 chairs. My guess is the ratio of takeaways to eat-in is roughly 50/50. I chose a Filet Steak Szechuan style as opposed to Chinese style or just Sizzling, all priced at 21.80. My partner had Mongolian lamb. Both came with vegetables and we shared a small bowl of white rice which really was unnecessary because their portions are generous, in fact neither of us could finish and we took the remainder home where they were still delicious the next day at lunch. So both dinners were excellent and we will go back.More

Its all about the bbq meat here. The bbq pork, crispy pork and roast duck are all excellent. I often pop by for one of their lunch deals, my daughter loves it too. Had dinner home delivered a couple of times as well and the...food has always been tasty, plentiful and good value. Less greasy than some other chinese deliveries I've had, and always enough leftovers for lunch the nest day. Recommended.More

Absolutely delicious, hot, generous portions and prompt delivery. I was happy to find more than a few king prawns in the sauce. I have not had Chinese take-away for many years because of the sub standard quality; but my faith in Chinese take-away has been...restored.More

We ordered a take away from here based on the good reviews and we were really disappointed. The steamed dim sims had been steamed and then deep fried. We ordered the squid and received deep fried fish - which was very tasty but the batter...was so thick that we could only manage one piece each. The main course was tasty but as we were all looking forward to picking at a mixture of starters they were just far too greasy & the batter was so thick that it was very heavy & sickly.More

Their Peking duck is amazing the best I've ever had ..including China. In fact any duck or chicken dish is very good as they process and roast their own on site. I've been a few times and the food is usually very good but the...last visit the deep fry dishes were greasy and the other dishes salty so now not so sure ..will try again Good Value BYO and Licenced . Many Chinese customers so must be good and good value .More
