“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the dishes here. We dined in but they are take away as well. They were good size meals, flavoursome and plenty of meat and veg. The only criticism I have is we ordered fried banana and icecream but what we got was icecream and 4 tiddly little bits if banana. The banana should have been the star of the dish. Other than that, will definitely go back next time we are in Nelson. Prices were good too.

“Consistent Chinese food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We have found the food here to be consistently good over the past 10 +years we have been holidaying in Nelson. It was also a good choice for a meal at 8.30pm on a Friday evening. The waiter who greeted us said we would need to wait a minute while he set up a table-quite strange when there were only 2 other guests there! However we did sit at a table for two.
The service was quite prompt. The sweet and sour wontons were OK as an entree to share. Mains of spicy squid and sweet and sour pork did not disappoint two hungry travellers-the medium size dish is plenty for two to share. Rice is extra here but a small bowl for sharing was plenty. The restaurant is licensed though we took our own wine as it is also BYO.

“ODD APPROACH”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

My wife and I had a pre dinner drink in the Sprig & Fern pub, bang opposite this restaurant and on the spur of the moment decided we would try the Chinese across the way for dinner. Its not the biggest of restaurants so consequently nearly every table was occupied, there was one large table in the corner seating about 10 people who appeared to keep all the waiting staff occupied. The restaurant doesn't have a liquor licence but don't let that put you off as on the corner by the traffic lights a few meters away is an impressive wine store, however the restaurant does charge you 5NZ$ corkage per bottle !
In the front of the restaurant is a large display take away, its great value and was very popular with the locals, its probably the best bet for this restaurant ! The food when we eventually were served was acceptable, the staff were young and helpful but very wary of the proprietress, a woman who gave the impression she could chew razor blades. Even more annoyingly this woman kept going to the till and counting up the cash that was being paid into the till from the take away sales. I'm sure there are more welcoming Chinese restaurants in Nelson, I might go for the take away if I ever return but I'm not sure I'd want to sit down and eat there again.
