Average Chinese restaurant. Not exceptional food, but certainly not terrible. The service is fine. They hire friendly Asian waitresses whom I assume are on working holiday visa. We were not very excited with the meals, but we were not disappointed either.

Not the greatest Chinese Rest. in Queenstown but certainly one of the better ones. Average food & service. Go only if you are craving for a Chinese food hit!!

They charged my friend $24 for a tiny bowl of rice and a plate of steamed bok Choi. We complained...they couldn't care less. Their machine also couldn't read my card and they made me go and get cash out to pay them. When I got back with cash they literally ripped it out my hands. Really poor...

Never again. Should have gone literally anywhere else. Overpaid for kung pao chicken, hoping I'd get a little taste of the original dish as I'd had it in China. Instead got the worst cut of chicken imaginable. Tough, gristly meat....with bones?? Are you serious? Dog food quality. Regrettable mistake made in my limited time in New Zealand. Avoid at all...

They have live sea food tanks and know how to cook them. It reminded us of Cantonese Restaurants in South San Francisco and Boston. Quality wise, they were quite good. Both the thorny lobster with ginger and scallions as well as the steam fish in soy sauce were even better than some other Chinese restaurants in the U.S. and Thailand.

I'm surprised at the bad reviews on here as we found it to be excellent value for money, great big portions, excellent friendly service, the best quality chinese we have had (all well travelled diners) and the best fried rice we have ever eaten. Will return for sure, the only thing was the wine glasses bought over were dirty with... More

Recently moved to new premises upstairs in the mall. Nicely diverse menu. The chicken and corn with crab soup was great. Interesting take on venison in a number of dishes.
