“Average food, average atmosphere, good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I quickly popped in for some lunch and selected a $6 entree and a $10 main from the fairly extensive lunch menu. Efficient and polite staff, and food served hot and fresh after just a few minutes. Not particularly exciting but I will certainly use it again for lunch, but better options available locally for dinner.

“Poor service, bland food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Went for yum cha on Saturday, admittedly it was 1.15pm when we arrived. Food was served buffet style, very 'Western bland' Asian food. The only flavourful item was the steamed pork buns, they were good! (I did wonder that if I'd ordered several entrees that perhaps I would have had a better yum cha experience?).
Stopped for dinner next night, wasn't offered the menu and was pointed to the buffet which had me wondering if this place was a buffet only place. The buffet choice was again very "Western bland" food. Other patrons arrived and were given menus.
The person who looked to be the man in charge was definitely exuding the aura that he didn't want to be there both times I dined; his attire, phone manner and welcome could do with major improvement.
Won't be rushing back here when next in The Bay, nor offering recommendation to visitors.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This new addition to the Napier scene is ok, the food is fine and reasonable if you want a quick meal or takeaway. Not the place to go for a special occaision but ok for a midweek meal if you don't have time to cook a meal
