I don't even want to rate this place one, I would give it zero if I could. The, worst, and I mean WORST food I have EVER had in my life. We got take-out, and it was among the more expensive of chinese take-out I've had, and it was foul. I couldn't even finish my food, I had two bites.... More

My food safety tutor at the Souther Institute of Technology sent me here to see how things should not be done. What can I say? This has to be the worst dining experience in Invercargill. The food is atrocious, the decor is gaudy and the service is non-existent (unless you count the staff watching you at the buffet). Like one... More

Decor dated, carpet thread bare, staff not in restaurant attire, dirty looking, food yuck. I wouldn't go there normally, but went with others. Got what I expected. There are better choices in town, go there. If you had to go there, order off menu, not buffet. Been sitting there for ages, looks sad, tastes the same.

My husband fancied Chinese food. We walked in to order take away. I had to walk straight out again. They had just cleaned and the smell of the disinfectant (or something) was so overpowering it actually made me ill. I figured 'at least it is clean!' My husband wasn't effected as badly so he stayed in and ordered. Sadly. The... More

We went for the lunch buffet. I found the food was okay nothing spectacular. Prices were reasonable considering you eat as much as u llike. Been a few times so not that bad.
