“Chinese food to suit both European and Chinese tastes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

There were two separate menus, one of which had choices that this reasonably adventurous diner decided to avoid. Chinese tea arrived with the menus. The menu we chose from was extensive, food was delicious, inexpensive and served very quickly. The lemon chicken and laksa were excellent and a complimentary serving of deep fried milk was delicious. We ate there twice on our holiday in Auckland.

“The Best Chinese Food in Auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

I found this restaurant near my hotel and decided to give it a go. It was exceeded all my expectations! The food was excellent, I tried a mix of dishes ranging from Kekkien Fried Rice, HK Fried Noodle, Lotus Soup, Duck Rice, Chinese Buns, Roast Pork and Roast Duck. Surprisingly, the roast duck was very good, it's the best I've tried for the whole trip.
The service was really friendly and helpful, the dishes are very nicely prepared and tasty and the cost, extremely reasonable. I went back a couple of times and each time the food was really nice.
I would recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Auckland. A very enjoyable dining experience. .

“One of the Best Chinese meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

Located in Wyndham St just around the corner from the Chiffley Suites. Certainly no special attraction offered by the external appearance but the food was excellent. The smell of the food & the presence of ducks hanging in the front window was certainly alluring. The 4 of us enjoyed a variety of dishes with the duck a standout. The menu is simple with some photos, specials are written in Chinese on paper stuck to the walls. Service was prompt & polite. No liquor licence & all drinks are $2.
The quick service, excellent hot, fresh food served in basic surrounds at very reasonable prices (but good quantities) served the purpose for one of our nights in Auckland. Delivery is also offered.
