“Disappointed...rude rude service, average food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

A group of us went here for a celebration...sadly it was horrible! The service was atrocious, the food average (not bad but not good either - pretty typical for this kind of place, the value for money very very poor and the toilets were disgustingly dirty.
And, we were rudely kicked out before 10pm (on a Saturday. The fact we were asked to leave - I get, its a BYO restaurant and there was no money to be made from us after we ate...but the way it was done was so very rude.
Fair to say I will not return.

“Great Chinese”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

If you're looking for really great Chinese food, a busy, happy, atmosphere and excellent service by friendly staff North and South is a great choice. I have been a few times and have never been disappointed. Six of us went the other night and all chose different dishes to share. They were all delicious!

“Best Yum Cha in ChCh”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Great service. The cart came around regularly and if you couldn't see what you wanted, you could order from the menu and have it bought to you. Lovely tea that was topped up regularly. Good value for money.

“Great BBQ ”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Had a beautiful meal here.

The wontons were great and the bbq pork and crispy roast pork was very good. Fairly well priced too. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

“Value for money”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

big busy restaurant - efficient service, good staff who know the food well. Not an intimate dinner for 2 place, but good for big groups or people wanting good value for their money - well worth making the effort. Shame about the yellow chair covers !
