Lok Fok - Sunnybank


When going to Sunnypark, one cannot miss the very strongly Chinese themed Lok Fok, which catches the eye with its super strong red exterior. Having noticed it for a while, one evening when mother decided she did not want to cook dinner, we headed there for a meal.


Tea was complementary, and cutlery was provided on the table. However the first thing I noted was that the pvc tablecloth was quite sticky, which was rather concerning. The cup was also a bit stained on the outside.

Dinner started off with a complementary pork and carrot broth. It was very warm and appetizing, but rather more on the mild side compared to what I would have enjoyed more. It was commendable how the soup didn't have excessive amounts of oil though.

We were given rice next. I was really concerned when I saw the bowl. As you can see it was really quite dirty on the outside, and the rice had a slight yellow tinge. I had real qualms about how hygienic the rest of the meal was.

In terms of mains, we had stir fried beans. The beans were well seasoned with dark soy sauce, the chili and meat gave it quite a bit of extra zing, but other than that, I didn't find it any different to any other stir fried beans from other Chinese establishments.

I found the mixed BBQ platter to be the highlight of the meal, consisting of crispy roast pork and roast duck. Both of the meats had a low fat content, which is much appreciated. The duck was marinated, but the flavours didn't seep too deep into the meat, which meant it needed additional sauce to give it enough taste. The pork though, had nice and crispy skin, and had flavour right down to the end.

This was the tofu and seafood pot, a dish which I usually enjoy quite a bit. The soup in this instance was milky white, due to the seafood content in the soup. They had fish fillets, as well as fish cake. It was quite mild, but I would have liked the tofu more if it was fried on the outside, to give it a nice texture.

Lastly, we had a dish of fried mussels, which were quite tasty. It had a strong garlic taste to it, and was a bit spicy due to the chili. The added sauce complemented the dish well, and went nicely with rice. The strong flavours in the dish really overpowered any taste the freshness the seafood may have had though.
