These people know how do make chinese food with good ingredients. Sometimes when you go to a chinese restaurant the meet is not very tender or the pork is tough to chew but.... not here! They offer the best: soup, dumplings etc. We loved!

The food is edible here, I didn’t suffer any food poisoning after dinning at this restaurant. That’s all the positive thing I can say about it. If all other restaurants in Te Anau close down, if u r a Chinese who haven’t had any Chinese...More

My wife and I had the set menu for 2 which was excellent - tasty food well cooked and fast efficient service. Most of the clientele were Chinese which is always a good sign. It was excellent value we thought at $57 all in.

Try the steam fish dish as if was very nice a bit more expensive but worth it. The service was just average and they needed more staff. Liked the food overall. Cheers Russ

Very average food and very poor service. Stick to the Italian restaurant or Kepler’s; both nearby. Ordered items that never came.

Honestly a terrible experience. They're not targeted for western travellers, rather large tour group of Chinese speaking tourists. Communication was lacking, ordered a drink that never came and the fried rice tasted like it had been soaked in butter and salt. AVOID!!

We waited 10 minutes by the door and we were purposely ignored. It’s a restaurant catered to tour groups not individuals. Service is poor. Food is worst and way overpriced. I had the lamb of rack in pepper sauce. Was ok except didn’t even look...More

Poor and confused service, very bland, tasteless satay beef and rubbery honey chicken. Bought wine by the glass which tasted nothing like we expected. Waiter forgot to bring rice which we'd ordered. Carafe of water not as clean as it could be. All in all...More
