Great food, reasonably priced and so many dishes to choose from. The lunch specials are a bargain too. This has been our family favorite for over 10 years. The duck, tofu and fish dish and szehuan lamb dishes are great.

It is an Interesting "Shanghai" restaurant with other style Chinese food, the food is ok, but some dishes were not proper. It is a good place to try at Wellington.
