The very best Chinese food!

As residents of nearby Wakefield, we have made New Asia, our restaurant of choice when ever we visit Nelson in the evening. We have never been disappointed with our choices from their extensive menu although we do have our favourites. The service and presentation is always great.

My partner and I went to this restaurant on Saturday night. We wish we had saved our time and money! I could have made a better meal with a Jar of sauce. We ordered sweet and sour chicken and Pork in satay sauce, with rice for two.. The chicken was tiny morsels of what might have been chicken, not seasoning... More

We just needed something quick and tasty and this was ideal.We used the take away version. The boys loved the buffet and most of it was eaten and they were full afterwards so ticked most of the boxes.

Although very nice, there was nothing 'outstanding' about the takeaway food we purchased from the smorgasbord.

The restaurant that sits behind this Chinese takeaway has very very good Asian food at a typically good price range. The Roast duck is an absolute must - especially the boneless version. Yum yum yum.

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
