The roast duck was fantastic my wife loved it. I had a noodle dish with pork that was unbelievable. The server was most helpful in the selection the hostess was very pleasant. The price was right. If you're looking for ambience, go somewhere else. If you're looking for the best Chinese food in Auckland this is it. Very clean.

It can get busy but walk in and take any seat available. This is NOT fine dining but back alley basic Hong Kong Chinese style. The prices are reasonable and you get plenty of food for your money. The waitresses are a bit random but I'm not sure they all speak English so you wait for an English speaking one... More

The restaurant carries a large variety menu. The food was quite good and very efficient service. Relatively inexpensive compared to other restaurants around.

Stumbled across the place. Really pleasantly surprised. Great staff and very friendly. Simple layout and the quality of the food is bang-on. Sweet and Sour Pork is Wow!. Also the BBQ on rice is great. Incredible range. Friendly atmosphere, quick turnaround on tables. A new 'go-to' place for me. It's my once a week treat. Love it!

Fresh crispy not too sweet. The sweet and sour pork was awesome. Good plane rice a real yum chicken broth to start with. The sizzling satay chicken was also a highlight and a great price. Good cheap food ideal for sharing with a big group.

Excellent succulent meat. Delicious healthy soup and chilli paste is out-of this world and goes will with the roasted meat! Reasonably fast turn over so you don't need to wait during lunch!

Good value for the quality of the food. The quantity was large and we had plenty to take away. Service was quick and friendly. It has a very large menu so easy to find something you would like. very basic dining area but the place was full so that is usually a good indication in our opinion that it is... More
