Hmm. My wife is native Chinese and I also enjoy authentic Chinese fare so expectations were high. We went there and took the takeaway option as we thought the menu food was overpriced. The food was pretty typical NZ-Chinese-takeaway fare. It filled the spot but we would not visit again.

We thoroughly enjoyed the dishes here. We dined in but they are take away as well. They were good size meals, flavoursome and plenty of meat and veg. The only criticism I have is we ordered fried banana and icecream but what we got was icecream and 4 tiddly little bits if banana. The banana should have been the star... More

We have found the food here to be consistently good over the past 10 +years we have been holidaying in Nelson. It was also a good choice for a meal at 8.30pm on a Friday evening. The waiter who greeted us said we would need to wait a minute while he set up a table-quite strange when there were only... More

My wife and I had a pre dinner drink in the Sprig & Fern pub, bang opposite this restaurant and on the spur of the moment decided we would try the Chinese across the way for dinner. Its not the biggest of restaurants so consequently nearly every table was occupied, there was one large table in the corner seating about... More

I think this was the Owner or the Manager, this Woman was terrible. Always she was present and she jumped around between the waiters. Perhaps she was the important Person in this evening. The Soup was terrible salty, the Meat, perhaps this should be beef was like a Watermelon. The taste was really like Water. The Vegetables survived the last... More

this place was reccommended by the owner of the accommodation we stayed in and he was spot on. A small restaraunt set at the end of the dining strip but well worth looking for, the food was luscious and full of genuine flavours and really good value. seemes to be very popular with the locals as evidenced by constant flow...

Just had a great meal with seven guests. We shared the dishes, and they were all great. Highly recommend the sit down experience. Have heard to avoid the buffet.
