Needed somewhere at 11:30 at night, and this was where the taxi driver suggested. Large range of BBQ meats, soups etc. I chose my regular dish for a light Chinese meal, wonton and BBQ pork noodle soup. It arrived promptly with a bowl was generously filled with pork, bokchoy and wontons. The broth was average, slightly improved with some chilli... More

While strolling through Wellington on a recent trip, we decided to try this very unassuming place in the heart of town. To our surprise, the Asian food was very good; served hot and plentiful. It was also very reasonably priced. The noodle dishes were superb. The restaurant was not one for ambiance, but the service was fairly prompt and courteous.

They claim to have the best roast duck in town but I'd say it's average compared to what you can easily find in Asian countries. Customer service means they can't hear or understand what I said, which is commonly known as Cantonese. Not cheap either, expect at least $15.

Dirty, disorganised and smelly. Left without eating. Went next door for a great meal at Cha instead.

Sit down or take away, KC Cafe offers little in ambience and decor, but the food I'd pretty good. Nothing fancy, just decent Asian food... Been a couple of times and the other night we had duck with rice & bok choy + mixed noodles with seafood. Both meals were tasy, they were delivered quite promptly. Service is nearly non... More

Great place for a decent meal. I've grown oddly fond of the boss lady's constant glare and cold demeanor. Order the duck, it's excellent, or the Mee Goreng. They'll make basically anything you like, but ask for extra hot as their 'hot' is pretty tame.

We ordered plum duck...one of our favourite meals - usually beautifully cooked by Asians. This was not. It was dreadful. It tasted like a tough stew...nothing like duck and the supposedly plum sauce was like a watery gravy of sorts. With so many restaurants to choose from in the area, I can't believe we chose the worst.

Asian food/cafes are generally the cheaper options in WLGTN. KC Cafe (Chinese food) will not disappoint you,food is tasty not too salty. For the price and large servings, it gives you value for your money. Most of the times I'd take away my leftover - that's an extra meal at home (or instant packed lunch at the office the next...
