It's very delicious! We ordered Toufu Fish, Dong Mushroom and Lettuce, Veg and Shrimp, Ziran Lamb, Sweet and sour pork, Fried Rice for 4 adults and 4 kids for dinner. Everyone is totally full. The dishes are so yummy! We love all of them! The...service is good too. Highly recommended! Will be back. The only con is the price. A bit expensive compared with Auckland, but it's expected in Queenstown. But, it's valuable and amazing that you can find such great Chinese food here. LOVE IT!More

I’ve eaten Chinese food in Hong Kong and Vancouver, so trust me when I say that this place is the real deal. Some of the best Chinese (Cantonese style) food in NZ, and I’ve been looking for five years. Crayfish (lobster) cooked perfectly, amazing sweet...sour pork, fantastic sautéed greens, to name some highlights. Cannot wait to return and sample the rest of the menu.More

The worst Chinese takeaway we’ve ever had for $120 for 4.5 dishes. Very small meals , no vegetables in a vegetable dish apart from cabbage.

Amazing food bursting with lots of flavours. Hosts were fantastic and have great knowledge in their food. We will definitely be back, the only problem is everything is so good, not sure what to try next. Nikki

Absolutely loved our banquet dinner, fresh flavours, beautifully presented, fresh and hot! The host spent a lovely amount of time teaching my husband how to use chopsticks. Soup to start is to die for & The Best Sweet and sour pork ever! Topped off with...a Ice Cream sundae - Spoilt. We will be back with the family.More

Food didn't have that wow factor for us. Vegetables were nicely steamed. My partner had the venison and she thought it was ok. Waiter knew his wines.

The service from the owner was amazing. Really appreciated his warm personality and how he recommended the dishes and was considerate with cutley. We ordered thr chicken soup and spicy chicken and mongolian chicken. Food was yum. Will definitely go back.

Had a massive craving for sweet and sour pork so I made my family eat here, and I was not disappointed, the pork batter was super crispy just the way I like it and all the other dishes we had was tasty as well.
