Would highly recommend to anyone wanting... More

Whilst eating on a Sunday night we found this restaurant was open and the service was maintained by one waiting person very well. Our food was very tasty and the servings of good proportion.

Have never taken any food back before, but our takeaways were inedible. Rancid flavour to chow mein dish, sweet and sour pork so hard and tough, was un chewable and the vegetables basically raw, and nothing tasted nice at all.

Fancied a chinese meal and this place was recommended. Friendly staff and good service, with some of the biggest portions of food that I saw in New Zealand. Really tasty meal.

The staff were very friendly and the servings are large - be warned. The prices were good and all but one dish was delicious, the other was nice but I expected more - probably more about us than the actual dish.
