A proper Chinese meal way up here?

Good service and good food. Even a good selection of wine. Not all that many people there though. A good night out.

Had dinner at the restaurant. The food was very mediocre. We had hot and sour soup, stir fried beef and various other dishes. With the limited options in Kaitaia this restaurant is an obvious choice. You might do better to head down to the sushi takeaway!

This restaurant has been recently renovated and its decor is well in keeping with its theme. Most appealing. Spacious and can seat large groups. The owner very friendly, great P.R. and very helpful.. The meal was absolutely amazing. Beautifully cooked . Four dishes among five of us for lunch and more than enough. Thoroughly recommend and will return.

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the service is good but the food in terms of quality and flavour is not consistent. We tried to go and eat there SO many times over the past 18 months and I think we succeeded once in about the 10 times we tried because they were just never open! We haven't been... More

The food was only average but it had a quirky atmosphere & the owner & staff were very friendly. It's the only place in town open on a Sunday night so that's a huge plus.

The Sea Dragon is easy to find on the main street- it has a giant dragon on the roof and interesting wall art of shoals of tiny ceramic fish set into plaster on the way to the restaurant door. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service helpful. It is no problem to have have MSG-free food. Our meals were tasty... More

Food was very good, tasty and good quantity. Service was casual but generally OK. Plenty of people collecting take-aways. Would go back again
