I'm staying in a hotel opposite the restaurant, looked very average from outside but decided to give it a go based on reviews. Ordered bbq duck on rice, the duck tasted nice but was cold (not luke warm but actually cold, like it had been in a fridge), rice was luke warm and silver beet was luke warm. Nothing was... More

It was our third time at this resto. Previous visits were sort of okay. However, it was not the case this time around. Soup was cold, crispy pork was 50% fat, bbq pork was obviously reheated (microwaved?). Only the chicken fried rice was above average. Steamed rice never came even after two follow-ups but was included in the bill. The... More

Ate here our last night in Auckland because of the reviews and it happened to be just a few hundred meters from where we were staying. Win win. Staff was friendly and the prices were great especially for how large the servings are. My fiance and I were starving when we came in. We both ordered dishes we've never had... More

Like most authentic Asian eateries where the emphasis is on the food, there is little consideration given to presentation and décor here. This is fine with us because we go there for the excellence of their home-style Asian cooking and the prompt delivery of really tasty food at bargain basement prices.

This was a little hidden gem, tucked in behind the Ibis Styles hotel. The food was good authentic Chinese food. Like any good Chinese restaurants, it doesn't look good from the outside, but once you go in and eat the food, it was delicious. PS: KFC, eat your heart out; BBQ King had a spice on the counter with 57... More

We had a late lunch here, and BBQ King was half packed! Most of the diners were Chinese, and there were a dozen roast ducks hanging up - two signs of a great Chinese restaurant. As well, each diner receives a complimentary bowl of nourishing soup. The bi-lingual menu was extensive, but we had the BBQ duck - we love... More

I used to live around the corner and would eat here about once a week, with enough left over from a meal for lunch and dinner the next day. It seems the prices have gone up a bit in the past few years, but that's to be expected, and the servings were still pretty giant last time I went, so... More

Had a craving for roast duck in the weekend so decided to go to BBQ King. I used to go there a lot when I was at uni for the cheap meals. The food hasn't changed much (or the decor!), but it is still tasty and reasonably priced as it was years ago. I had the roast duck and pork... More

Either the reviews online were deceiving or we came to this place at a bad time. The waitress couldn't not comprehend what we wanted even though we pointed at the menu. We were opting for a vegetarian meal eg. Stir fried veges but she was being very impatient with us. The utensils looked very old and worn out. And hot... More
