We have visited this restaurant for an evening meal on a couple of occasions and have had very enjoyable meals on both occasions. Also have tried their yum-cha. Staff very helpful and friendly. Easy access for older customers and BYO wine as well.

We understand this is a new restaurant in town - 2 months old we were told. First and foremost - this is one classy restaurant. I do not say this lightly - from all aspects. The ambience is superb. The music is appropriate. Now for the mains.

The food is probably without doubt the best Chinese we have experienced in New Plymouth for a long long time - can't remember when we had such good food. Authentic chinese - not westernised - now that is the difference. The service is impeccable - very attentive - very friendly staff - nothing is a problem. The bar is another piece of attention - very creative. The price is extremely reasonable for the quantity - and quality. Apparently they have Yum Cha on offer for lunch - next on our menu to check out. Overall - a fabulous experience and a fantastic evening at this must visit restaurant. Highly recommended. 5 stars without a doubt.
