The staff were rude from the get go. Waited 1hour 30mins for our food as other tables, of which had arrived after us, were served first. You could find the same quality of food at your local takeaways for half the price. It's a shame because the venue is awesome.

80s style restaurant which is great for those comfort eating days. Food was typical Chinese fair - we weren't adventurous. But looking at all the other tables there was some more exciting meals coming out. We were the only non Chinese table so that means they are on to something good. Will visit again once the oil clears from my... More

Our first night in Aukland, we were tired but hungry so we decided for something early. This restaurant was open for dinner at 5.30 and it was literally around the corner from our motel, had we realized how close it was we would have walked! Taking our wine order was slow but from then on the service was fantastic, especially... More

It is close to 30 years since we dined in at a Chinese restaurant but my wife and I were attracted by a Grab One deal for this Epsom restaurant which offered a two plate meal with a stated value of up to $65 for only $29. We were given a special grab one menu - no prices listed. We... More

slow service, had to ask for tea, had to ask for the pot to be refilled. Food we had was good and fresh (Singapore noodles, S&S Pork, Roast Duck, Choy Sum)

I have never experienced such lowly, unfriendly service in a restaurant (we arrived at 8pm). The food just manages an average rating but was EXPENSIVE. My dining companions asked how is it that this place remains in business when there are multitudes of truly excellent restaurants within easy walking distance of this place? What a hideous experience.

Nice enough. Wide selection of dishes and somewhat faithfully prepared (Chinese friends comment and our own experiences). Average service - large population exposure perhaps somehow reduces customer service..... You're in 'Rome'. So expect to be treated as a 'Roman'. Prefer Grand Park.

Unfortunately the service was poor. Took a while to be offered menus, or even for our orders to be taken.
