good options of Chinese dishes for your pallet. but the service area could do with a bit of improvement. as it took quite a bit of time for our dish to arrive. overall a decent place to go if you are nearby.

Decent chinese food. Go there because it's close to where I live on Hobson. Definitely not a place I would come if I had stayed far away.

Been to Auckland before but didnt know where to find good food. I was pleasantly surprised with the food in this restaurant. I feel like an empress feasting. The service was very good.

We were looking forward to some seafood, but found that the menu was somewhat sparce in that regard, opting for more traditional chinese dishes. our orders were taken quite quickly and the first dish of squid was offered soon after, it was tastless. we were not offered any beveridges and had to hail a waiter so we could at least...

After eating lamb and more lamb in NZ, we were looking forward to a change of cuisine. This restaurant is located very close to our hotel. The saute fish was good. The overall taste of food was ok for Chinese food. Service was little lacking.

We were a bit tired after a long drive, and didn't want to walk too far to eat dinner, and this was in the street right behind our hotel. The food was nicer than we were expecting and well priced.
