Ate here our last night in Auckland because of the reviews and it happened to be just a few hundred meters from where we were staying. Win win.

Staff was friendly and the prices were great especially for how large the servings are. My fiance and I were starving when we came in. We both ordered dishes we've never had before, ate and left full and completely satisfied.

Like most authentic Asian eateries where the emphasis is on the food, there is little consideration given to presentation and décor here. This is fine with us because we go there for the excellence of their home-style Asian cooking and the prompt delivery of really tasty food at bargain basement prices.

This was a little hidden gem, tucked in behind the Ibis Styles hotel. The food was good authentic Chinese food.

Like any good Chinese restaurants, it doesn't look good from the outside, but once you go in and eat the food, it was delicious.

PS: KFC, eat your heart out; BBQ King had a spice on the counter with 57 herbs & spices.

We had a late lunch here, and BBQ King was half packed! Most of the diners were Chinese, and there were a dozen roast ducks hanging up - two signs of a great Chinese restaurant. As well, each diner receives a complimentary bowl of nourishing soup. The bi-lingual menu was extensive, but we had the BBQ duck - we love the taste and no-nonsense way it is prepared - diced up with a big cleaver. There is a TV on the wall with Chinese language programmes running. Spartan decor, but a very friendly atmosphere, and obviously very popular with locals & Chinese tourists. Great food and great value - 3 hungry adults fed for $25. A Chinese slice of heaven, just off Auckland's main street.
