I had dinner on 19/2 together with other 4 friends. We have ordered fish and shrimp. The fish is considered fresh but over price. In addition, shrimp is not fresh and expensive. We also ordered two veges. It come out very samll serving and the broccoli is not cooked properly. We have to wait a lenthly of time before the food is serverd.

My husband and I had made our journey back from a lovely day at Milford sound. We decided to go for dinner in queenstown, We picked this place because we love asian food however when we received our rice and our beef stir fry, it was cold!! I actually sent the stir fry back to the kitchen. They attempted to reheat the dish but it was still just Luke warm at best at $38.00 a pop! The cold rice was $12.00. I had a wonton soup which was nice tasting and hot so that was a bonus. It had one piece of broccoli in it. Service was average and overall experience terrible. We paid and left basically our entire meal there and no one even asked us how our meals were or why we left it all behind. Do not go here! In my opinion worst Chinese ever, it was disgusting to eat cold food!

We came for some takeaway to satisfy the cravings for Chinese food by some members in our party. The Yung Chow fried rice and black bean chicken were ok. Typical Chinese-food-abroad fare. Decent but nothing spectacular. The Yung Chow egg was too thick.

The food was fantastic!!. However, I felt they could have paid more attention to the cleanliness of their carpet. It can be dismaying especially if you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant,

We are from Sydney and this was one of the better Chinese restaurants we have been to in NZ, seeing that Sydney has lots of authentic Chinese restaurants.
They are located upstairs so you will need to climb stairs, hand rails available. No lifts are available. It was quite dark inside the restaurant.
We went for dinner quite late, around 8:30 or 9pm and people were still coming in on a Friday. The staff are friendly and service is nice. They have a nice selection of Chinese and non Chinese alcoholic beverages, as well as Chinese tea.
They have seafood as well as non-seafood.
