We visited Heng’s on a recommendation from a work colleague. It’s a no frills Chinese restaurant in Edgewater, nestled in amongst the shops on Edgewater Drive.
It was quite empty when we arrived, but soon filled up with local diners, and the phone rang non-stop for takeaway orders.
We were given some very tasty prawn crackers to start.
Our starters were prawn toasts and chicken satay. Both very flavoursome, and the prawn crackers arrived with the traditional red gloopy sweet and sour sauce.
The satays were nicely marinated with a good curry peanut sauce.
For mains we chose prawns with ginger and spring onion:
Chicken with black bean and capsicum:
Special fried rice:
The rice had that lovely charred wok flavour, portions were generous, and the other dishes were pleasant to eat – standard Chinese restaurant fare.
I wouldn’t say the food was amazing, but if you want good, cheap Chinese food, this a reasonable local option.
