We came here last weekend and had a selection of dishes, the red pork was delicious and the service was a step up from the average, will certainly go back.

We go here often to get take aways. Service is fast, but don't expect friendly. Food is really good, love their crispy chicken, coriander beef and butter prawns.

Should avoid this place. Awful service. Shanghai food here was alright. Probably not bad for Auckland standard. Its pretty average really. Was a bit surprised with the positive comments. At least my experience here was poor. The staff were rude. They avoided eye contact to minimize their work. Don't care attitude. Big time.

The most amazing and authentic Chinese food and experience I have had in New Zealand. The different tastes are amazing and make you want to keep eating when your belly is full and telling you not to! I would recommend asking for sweet and sour as well as kung pao chicken. Delicious!

Have been to this restaurant many times with the family, it's a must every time We're all together in auckland. We used to live in shanghai and with out a doubt this restaurant is the most authentic we have been to outside of china. Amazing flavors and variations. The sweet and sour chicken is superb!

The food at Yi Pin Xiang is authentic, well prepared and delicious. This is a great place to go to try something different. Don't expect too much help explaining the menu though as speaking English is definitely not a pre-requisite for working here.

Nice Shanghai (Chinese) cuisine. They have a very good value lunch menu to get customers in the afternoon. Recommending the small fried buns (Sheng Jian Bao), the chicken dumpling soup and prawns with egg york. Good food and good location, plenty of parking. I find the food a tad salty sometimes though.
