“Hong Kong Cafe in an Auckland setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

It is located along Queens Street, just round the corner of the CityLife Auckland Hotel (Queens Street Entrance). Most dishes here cost around NZ$10-15, and the portions are very generous. For Asian tourists like me who don’t have big appetites, order to share! Heard the roasts were good but I didn’t try, though I did see the neighbouring table getting served his a generous mountain of roast duck rice! It was really impressive; the serving was double that of what they serve back home!!! I tried numerous dishes whilst here – shrimp & pork dumpling noodle soup, sweet & sour pork rice, pineapple & chicken fried rice, fried beef rice noodles, fried noodles with prawns. Special mention goes to the last two! Really yummy! The food is reminiscent of authentic food fare you’ll find in Hong Kong. They serve up some complimentary soup and tea to go along with your meals too. Even the restaurant itself reminds me of the unadorned cafes that throng the streets of Hong Kong, albeit a lot more spacious. Food is good, service is good; I’ve had the owner come by my table to ask how the food is several times! While café is simple, with boxes stacked here and there, they do make up for the lack of embellishments with delicious food and warm service.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I found this place by pure chance as I was at the internet cafe net door and was hungry when i came out and this was the 1st place i ran into

So glad i did. As i was there the next 3 nights in row

Great roast meats for a great price. Highly recommend the Crispy Pork. Heart Attack waiting to happen but oh so worth it!

“Great Mainland food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Great mandland Chinese food in the center of Auckland City. Probably the best value in the area, gets very busy at dinner and lunch times. Staff are helpful, free soups during the day. My favorite mainland restaurant in Auckland City.
