The baked BBQ pork buns are tasty but it lacks pork filling, the rice rolls are average and soggy. The shui Mai was good along with the shrimp dumpling. Service was good. Average dim sum

Loved the chicken feet. That's the only thing I liked. Disappointed in the dumplings they didn't seem fresh and was rather tough on the dough. Atmosphere was lovely though.

We found this was the most outstanding Chinese food we had during our trip to New Zealand. The service was good and the food was tasty.

Here's a break down of what we had and their rating. Lotus sticky rice - hot and fresh pretty good Spare ribs - pretty good Beef Cheong fun (steamed noodle wrapped beef) - wife liked it better than average Xiao long bao - worst I ever had, no juices and was freezer burned on the top. Complained and they acknowledged... More

Having dined here on two previous occasions and thoroughly enjoying it, was left disappointed from our dinner here last week - the restaurant wasn't at all busy, but service was slow, staff seemed disinterested and the quality of the food certainly wasn't as great as we have had here in the past - and the beer served wasn't very chilled....

Having never tried Yum Cha before this restaurant showed me what I'd been missing.The wide range of freshly prepared, delicious tasting food brought around by the staff was a pleasure to experience. The flavours and varieties would appeal to all tastes so no one leaves unsatisfied. Very reasonably prices for a vast amount of food. brilliant.

This was a good experience, but not great. The meat was overcooked and the flavours were average. The staff were very attentive and the decor appealing however.

Such a busy place that has not only atmosphere but gives you the busy pace you'd expect from the Orient! Grab a seat and let the plates come flying out the kitchen for you the sample! Take some friends along and try variuos different treats!

We were there for lunch before leaving for the airport, it was within walking distance fro our hotel. We were actually pretty sceptical with chinese food in a foreign land but turned out it was acutally quite nice. We had rice with some stir fried dishes and baskets of dim sum, all turned out pretty tasty. Staffs were friendly and... More

There were six of us including 3 children. We had duck server in two courses (Peking duck and stir fried duck with lettuce). If you love duck, don't miss it. It was delicious! We also had fried rice and noodles plus various small dishes to share. We thoroughly enjoyed our food. The service was slightly slow and they charged for... More
