Chinese New Year at Huongs

We had a great Chinese New Year dinner at Huongs on the weekend.

I'm normally dead against ordering any kind of banquet for dinner, but in plenty of Chinese restaurants on the weekend, that was the only option, given they were all going to be packed.

For entrees we had spring rolls and some very tasty, crunchy san choy bow.

Mains spanned Chinese and Thai food, but were delicious - garlic king prawns, chicken massaman curry, salt & pepper calamari, duck with basil sauce and sweet & sour pork. The prawns, chicken and duck were my pick of the dishes as we struggled to finish them all.

Not only was the food great, but there were two Chinese dragons which danced around the room after the mains were served, while a couple of drums beat away.

Even though the restaurant was full, service through the night was quick and friendly. All this for $32 made it a great, fun night out. I've already done a post on Huongs which you can read if you're keen to find out more about the restaurant.
