Food here is just average for the prices we paid for our meals. Could do better with more staff on busy days. The variety in the cousine is shown on menu. could improve with taste of food.

Super yummy Chinese food. Tasty, flavoursome food. Ordered an entree and three mains between the two of us and we struggled to get through it. Portion size very generous!! Chefs hail from china and have not localised their dishes to kiwi's taste. Could easily be one of the best Chinese meal I had since arriving in NZ 6 years ago. Definitely be back if we are back in New Plymouth.
