Every now and then I go to that middle of the road , indeterminate East meets West fusion style restaurant, Barbarino and Wong It's fairly consistently ordinary. I'm not sure if other places are getting better (I doubt it) or they are getting worse but last week I found it less than ordinary. Their famed ribs had very little meat on them, The "crisp" potato wedges were completely soft, the shredded duck noodles were over salted and the honey chicken cloyingly sweet.
The fact that the serves are generous doesn't count for much when they taste so poor.
It will be a long long time before I go there again
Score: 11.75/20

Hmmm. I think the ATO may have something to say about that. I'm pretty sure you have to quote prices including GST. More fool B&W anyway because they are just driving people away.

You're right Ed, not that I'm going to send the ATO a note but I certainly don't like it - I will ask for my GST back and let you know how they respond

The above comments pertain to the original post in which I complained about the addition of GST to the bill. This was an error on my part and I have removed it from the review (with apologies)
