J AND W food is good and bad. The reasons is because I went with a group of about 10 people and 5 of them were kids but the bill somehow sky rocketed to $550 and it was when this store was having a special. I know that they need to make money but the food they serve isn't great as the lobsters sauce had a snotty texture to it which could be the result of using to much corn flour but the salty egg crab were delicious. As for the service, they are nice and we'll deserving a 4 star review as when we were early to the sitting they greeted us and a lady made us sit down with tea at the front (which wasn't our table to eat at) and at he end of our meal they gave us fresh fruits to eat.

First time there reserving a table for 14 for Mothers day lobsters noodle dinner. Facing Forest Hill shopping is convenient with parking. Took the 7.30pm reservation and was given a table within 15 mins. That's very efficient !! Menu is clear and easy to order..... we had 8 dishes and we were served within 30 mins. That's fabulous !! Table services....... friendly with a smile...and very efficient. All the dishes were to the standard. We left for home with a decision to come back and recommend to friends. Thank you, J & W for an enjoyable evening. See less

Had a brilliant meal last Friday. We feasted on Darwin mud crabs cooked with ginger and scallions on a bed of noodles, Peking duck, black pepper beef etc., etc. There wasn't really a weak dish, but probably swap out the french fries for prawn crackers on the beef? Our party of 6 all loved the meal. Crab was beautifully cooked and the Peking duck was juicy not fatty and served warm! Well done J & W. We will be Back! See less

Ordered Sweet & sour flounder, Golden chicken ribs, and 2 bowls of steamed rice for dinner on Tuesday. Total 64.40 AUD. The Golden chicken ribs were cooked to perfection. The meat was very juicy and tender, the coating was nicely crispy, and the seasoning was well-rounded and coated the dish evenly. The Sweet & sour flounder was also cooked perfectly. The sauce was sticky and flavorsome. The fish was cooked just right. The only downside to this dish was that there were not as many variety of fruits included as shown on the menu. There is no surcharge for Card payments. The downsides were the portion of the steamed rice was extremely small, and the waiting time was considerably long. Order was taken at 6.37pm, Golden chicken ribs was served at 6.54pm, and the Sweet & sour flounder came at 7.00pm. The restaurant was not packed, a few tables were empty. See less

Excellent lobster noodles; the lobster was fresh and sweet, and the noodles were fully infused with the taste of the broth, ginger and scallions. The steamed garoupa was excellent in its freshness and sweetness as well. See less

Great Chinese restaurant at Forest Hill, delicious Guangdong Cantonese cuisine from chef Jacky and restaurant manager Christine, outstanding service and dishes served and cooked to perfection. Had our first Chinese New Year 2021 Lou Yu Sang, the salmon salad was beautifully done with generous amount of condiments and sauces. Their lobster was very good with fantastic price, we tried the Singapore Chilli style sauce with mantou and it was great, lobster was very fresh and meaty and chilli sauce was very good too. The Chinese dumplings was very tasty and filled with great flavor and sauce. Highly recommend for a fantastic Chinese dinner night out, cannot be flawed. See less

J & W Restaurant 聚雅軒 Review on 19/12/2020 It has been a long time since I caught up with my former school mates and their spouses. Parking in the street outside of the restaurant is restricted, for 1/4 or 1/2 hours, but there are other carparks near-by, or just across the road in the Forest Hill Chase carpark. I never feel comfortable in a rather dimly lit restaurant. It probably attracts patrons who celebrate romantic occasions, but that may not appeal to many who come to enjoy other happy moments. It seems many dinners are going for lobster dishes in Chinese restaurants these days, due to price reduction since Australian lobsters are "banned" by China's importation. One of my friends is the organiser for the get together, and he pre-ordered set menu for two tables, plus three serves of Lobster and Noodle dish. There is a fish tank in the restaurant, keeping several live lobsters. I have not paid attention whether there is any groper in the tank. The lobster is a real delight, but as can be seen from the photo, the presentation of the finished dish is poor and lack finesse. The meat is already removed from the shell, and placed on top of a bed of "fresh" noodle. The chef is very generous with the tasty gravy, and visibly drowned the lobster. It is a treat for all of us after months of lockdown. The set menu includes groper (fish), prawn, sweet and sour pork, bean, Chinese broccoli with beef, string bean, and crispy chicken spare ribs. The Groper is fresh, and steamed to perfection. Its black colour body does look very pitiful when presented with minimum garnish on a white oval plate. Besides the lobster, the prawns and chicken spare ribs are not well presented. I have difficulty identifying them from the photos, not that they are well taken. The piece of chicken spare rib I have looks more like a chicken wing with its tip. I cannot understand why the spare ribs are placed on a black-and-white plate probably designed by a hypnotist. I am intrigued by the different designs, shapes, sizes and colours of the plates used. This may seem trivial, but it just does not look right to me. Chinese tea is not provided, which I find as a big drawback for most Chinese restaurants. I am tossing and turning in deciding to rate this a 3 stars or 4 stars. I hope the management take on board my rather come-to-the-point, but constructive comments. See less

The peking duck here is outstanding with perfectly crispy skin and warm wraps. Ordered several other dishes that were ok and could be better. Overall a satisfied meal experience. The staff were helpful, friendly and could be more attentive. See less
