Nice enough food, however, we have had better to be honest. The fish I had was overcooked. Average. Probably won't revisit.

Just popped in for a quick takeaway for hubby and I. Good atmosphere, very friendly service and value for money. Great tasting food as well. Well done, we will be back.

Ordered chicken with cashew nuts and veges, first issue they messed up my takeaway order and made pork with cashews nuts, luckily saw while walking to the car, got it changed but no apologies at all. No taste as compared to even average experiences We had, too bland taste. Not pleased and wont recommend at all from this experience!

Disappointed, was expecting a true Chinese restaurant, sure the Chinese are cooking here but for a Kiwi taste, menu pretty bare, just the usual dumplings and such, the place is clean but lacks character, over looks a main road and their carpark, pricing is ok

Slow, bland and generally pretty poor. Won't be back. Service of food from kitchen just too slow. Visit was planned months in advance so just no excuse for it.

I popped in for dinner around 8:30pm on a Tuesday. The bar was quiet as was the restaurant. The staff were pleasant but not outstanding, the food was plentiful and tasty enough but again not amazing. Satisfactory is the best way I can describe my meal.

This busy restaurant was just what we needed after a long day exploring local towns around Rangiora. The service was good, though the ambience of the room was not especially appealing.

There is usually some car parking available although ti can be hard to get in a Friday night. The service is usually good and takeaways are fast. I usually get takeaways and have not found anything I did not enjoy so far. There were fresh, tasty vegetables in the dishes and the crispy skin chicken is well cooked. We have... More
