Brighton's Humble House restaurant has plenty to boast about. Set over two levels, the restaurant is decorated in a lively and modern décor and offers a wide choice of Chinese dishes. The friendly and professional waiters can guide diners in choosing dishes and there is also a private dining room upstairs for private parties.

Welcome to my humble house, many Chinese say to welcome guests. But this particular modest place has much to boast about. It used to be a Thai restaurant which might explain its lively colours of strong green and purple. Yet it also has lots of Chinese accents in the decor and in the menu. It’s an appealing place with a sense of professionalism and calm. It appears quite small at first, but there’s an upstairs area upon closer inspection that doubles its size.

The menu is sizeable; if in doubt, choose one of the banquets from $35 a head. Otherwise, consider the wasabi prawns (coated in a green paste but not very hot), or perhaps the chicken or seafood san choy bau. House specials include Singapore-style chilli prawns, prawns in XO sauce, shredded beef in mandarin sauce, and lively Kung Po chicken or prawns (with dry chilli and peanuts). Want to feel healthy? Go for bean curd with Chinese mushrooms and bok choy, or fish with black bean sauce. It’s all extremely well cooked and presented. A nice touch is that the plates vary throughout the meal, as they do in Japanese food presentation. The $18 lunch is great value, but don’t let it stop you trying the full extent of the menu. The waiters are professional, helpful, and friendly and there is the option of takeaway as well.

Brighton patrons:

Thanks to Jackie and the gang for taking on 22 of us today (Sunday 9th) for our Xmas get together and Krisskringle. Not only did you cater to our every whim upstairs you had a party of 40 downstairs! Don't think we've had that before but you took it in your stride. It is no wonder that we each individually, as couples, visit you often throughout the year. We had a wonderful time and the food was superb. Many thanks Rachael (?) for running her socks off to look after us all. We had the best time (and have to also thank our friends Marsy and Christine for organising it). Will continue to come here for the great atmosphere and food. Sorry we hadn't gone by 4, but thanks for you patience!review  09/12/2012
