This new restaurant breaks the mould for Christchurch restaurants - it is gigantic, with the most amazing glitzy decor, a giant screen with loud music, same size mirror at the opposite end. The food is very good Chinese food although on the pricey side compared to other restaurants serving food of the same calibre. We received a lonely plate of crispy skin pork at least ten minutes before our order dumpling entree, which was curious. After that little hiccup the rest of the food arrived in sensible fashion. The stuffed topu was delicious as well as the beef dish we ordered - a lot of very fresh veges with the beef which was very pleasing . On the downside: the tables are very cramped - getting in and out of our seats was a challenge, and the staff, of which there were a very large number in the service team, could all have done with freshly laundered tops. Overall a great experience for a night out - something really different!

Eating at Madam Kwongs was a pleasant experience. Their yumcha is great and the service is good because servers come to your table frequently with different food. There is a good variety and reasonably priced .Because of it's popularity, we did have to wait but overall, eating at Madam Kwongs was fantastic.

We had Madam Kwong's Restaurant recommended to us, and tried it out for the first time midweek. Surprisingly busy for a Tuesday night, there was still plenty of room, because it is a large restaurant. The service was great, and we were happy to take the advice given on what to try based on what we said we liked. Big portions meant we got to take some leftovers home to enjoy tomorrow. The duck was yummy, as was the chilli chicken. The big bowl of green beans was a perfect foil for the meat.
Easy parking once we found it tucked in behind the Caltex station on Blenheim Rd.
We will definitely be coming back to try something more from the extensive menu.

Great place for yum cha aficionados.Waitresses bring trolleys with dumplings,steamed meat and pastry delicacies.the price is reasonable and we got our food fast.The waitress was quite efficient with our meal order plus we got all the help with our meal order.our group has Sui Mai, fried squid,custard buns,red bean croissant,steamed pork buns,steamed pork belly,beef stomach,prawn dumpling,chicken stir fry noodles,veg stir fry noodles and few other goodies from trolley.
Decor is fab.they have seating on 2 levels and specialize in Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine.Make sure you book a table as they were pretty busy for lunch but the upside is food is served quickly.

We tried the restaurant on Saturday 6.30pm with no reservation. We were given a table for two. Staff were pleasant and friendly. We ordered the salted bbq pork, spicy schezuan style beef broth and mixed seafood tofu claypot. The quality of the food was acceptable for christchurch standards. Food is tasty and anyone who's not dined in an Asian country would be none the wiser. Only gripe would be that the waitress we had seemed to not know what some dishes tasted like. Which wasn't a problem as she offered to ask the chef for us. Just that the couple next to us seemed to have a similar problem. This points to a new workforce. Wouldn't hurt for the staff to have some sort of menu tasting to help the staff recommend dishes in future. Something For management to think about. Nevertheless there seemed to be a lady walking around helping diners with their orders. I assumed she was the owner or manager of some sorts. Spent 57 for 3 dishes with two heaped small bowls of rice. Will also come back to try their yum char.
