Yum Cha was the order of the day for a quick and tasty lunch. The restaurant itself was a little quiet but this was great for the service and availability of dishes! Prawn and Coriander dumplings were great as well as the Roast Duck but some of the other dishes were wanting a bit. Shumai tasted a little odd, almost... More

This is by far the best Chinese food you ever find in Auckland. I was really taken aback by the authenticity and its range of cuisine. They must have a couple of Iron Chefs in the kitchen. Later I discover they are part of the same wonderful dragon Boat Chain of restaurants in Melbourne.

All the dishes we had on my 2 visits were pretty decent and quite authentic. Prices not cheap but acceptable. The place was busy when we dined in, reflected by the slow service and food did not come out that quick. Not the best one around but still an ok choice.

Wasn't in the restaurant but in takeaways and good standard quality for Auckland food. No issues at all.

Busy Chinese restaurant just off Queen St. Went here for a birthday lunch...better atmosphere than one of the nearby food courts, however the food was no better and more expensive. Not much of a wine list. Service a little slow, however it was busy. Worth a visit, but you can do better elsewhere if you have time to look.

We called with a group just over an hour before curtain up at a show and chose the Fast Dinner menu for $25 a head. Fast it was for two courses and tasty as well. We were in and out in just under an hour.

Were in a hurry to get to "Wicked" show and staff were very helpful - order taken and first course arrived within minutes. Food yummy - had the pre-show menu which had plenty of choice for mains. Good value and pleasant dining experience, even to real cloth serviettes, and friendly staff. Would dine there again
