We have eaten here many times on visits to Wellington and have never had a bad meal. Although we are not adventurous enough to eat some of the more unusual dishes on the menu we have worked our way through a variety of beef, chicken, pork and seafood dishes and had a consistently pleasant dining experience. Service is quick and although licensed it is BYO wine as well.

My husband and I came for the Specialty if the house - Peking Duck. - it was delightful, perfectly cooked, not too fatty, with crisp skin and we also ordered the salt and pepper squid which was to die for. Not too spicy, not too greasy, succulent and gorgeous. And the service was polite which has not been our average experience at NZ Chinese restaurants where you often feel as if you've walked straight into a Mandarin soap opera. Decor is simple but the restaurant is packed with locals. Highly recommended.

This is a very reasonably priced Chinese restaurant, with charming service. The fact that it is normally frequented by the locals inspires me! Food is always very fresh and beautifully cooked. Our favourite family restaurant for small or large groups.

Although we went for more traditional dishes this visit-sweet and sour pork and chicken and cashew nuts both dishes were very tasty, a good size and nicely presented. We appreciated the rice arriving with the meals to share as often this is not well coordinated in chinese restaurants. Although we arrived at almost 9pm and the restaurant was almost empty we did not feel rushed. BYO wine is reasonable for corkage although their wine selection is also not badly priced.
