Restaurant details
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We have visited this resataurant each year for the past few years on our regular visits to Timaru. In previous years we have had good service & generally good Chinese food. For reasons we don;t understand when we visited this year we had poor service, poorly prepared & generally poor quality food! Two of our courses (from a set menu) didn't arrive until the others were cold & even then only after we complained! I can only imagine that the chef or ownership has changed. Very disappointing.

Recommended by a local and we were pleasantly surprised, the food was good, plentiful, flavoursome and really good value. Probably not the best chinese I have ever eaten but close and the flavours of the dishes I ordered were true. I would like to have seen this place when it was really busy to add to the atmosphere.

My wife and I took the Banquet meal for two option ($26 each) and were amazed by both the size and quality of the food. Wontons, spring rolls followed by chicken & corn soup, followed by wonderful mains of sweet & sour pork, fried rice and chicken something. Then there was the ice cream sundaes, and finally jasmine tea.
It was truly delicious fare and well worth the money. We'll be back !

Incidentally, the prices on the drinks list were very reasonable too (beer $5, for example).
