We ate there 2 nights and enjoyed the food, the environment and the service. One dish we wanted (sweet and sour fish) was not avaiable but they provided fish with some great stirfried veg cooked exactly as I like!

The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely with a seaview. However, the price of the food is quite high compared to its taste and quality. Staff though is friendly and accomodating.

Food was good, especially the tofu dish. Service was prompt and friendly. It's right on the river, so you just pop out for a stroll along the wharf.

This is a proper white linen tablecloth restaurant and far above the usual Chinese you find in NZ. Normally we would not have chosen Chinese but on Valentines day without a prior reservation the alternatives were limited.

We were very pleased with the good service and excellent food, pretty reasonably priced for what we got to. Chinese is perhaps not everyone's dining choice but we were very favourably impressed. My Peking duck was as good as I have had although my partners shrimps we a bit "dry".

The location on the wharf is a winner too.

Well worth a visit.

A friend and I met here for lunch. We were the only diners present, but what a treat! The food was tantalisingly tasty and beautifully presented. We had the Chef's special for lunch that day, and at $15 thought it was very good value. The site is always pleasant with views of sea craft coming and going (it used to be "The Wharfshed"). Whakatane should appreciate having such a classy dining alternative amongst the many venues available.
