The owners are smiley types and will often cook and deliver your food themselves. Speaking of delivery, the piece de résistance is your food arrives piping hot.
Any restaurant that’s been in business for nearly 60 years, like Eden Chinese Food, gets our vote.

Hold on to your taste buds! This unique spot serves up a type of Chinese food known as Hakka, and it’s hot! Hakka is found in India amongst second and third generation Indian Chinese people who came from Canton. Think Chinese style with Indian spices. We love the sauces and syrups of traditional Chinese cuisine, but if you want something a little less shiny and just as delicious, Hakka fits the bill.
Vegetarians won’t be left out when you order from Good View; the veggie options here are nearly as varied as that of the chicken, seafood and beef dishes.

Beverages look tempting – avocado smoothie or young coconut juice anyone? Chef specials and the lunch menu are not available for delivery, but there are many more delights to choose from.
