Great food and good services. Give you free parking after 6pm as well. The wine was at reasonable price. The waiter's recommended dishes and wine were a good match.

As a local in the area, I love coming here because the flavours are always so reliable. If you can't tell just by looking in, it's almost always busy and it really is better if you call ahead to reserve yourself a table first thing in the morning. The staff are as friendly as they can be but English can... More

It was a crowded popular restaurant with authentic Chinese cuisine that reminded me of the food we get in Chinatown in NYC. Try the calamari, the prawns with cashews and the wonton soup.

Booked a table for 7 adults 2 kids a few days ago. When we were there, we saw another 3 tables reserved with wine glasses arranged, on those tables, but not ours. We asked for wine glasses, and came with those very small size ones. My partner asked if we could have those normal size like those on the other... More

Overall, we had a good dinner experience here. The food was authentic Cantonese-style, very well-prepared, and arrived promptly. Decor was above average for a Chinese restaurant. However, there didn't seem to be enough servers for the crowd; it was difficult to get someone's attention as the staff was very busy.

Good quick and efficient service on arrival with tea all prepared. One of the waitresses pushing the yum char food, was slightly rude, but everyone else was quite helpful and friendly. My only suggestion is for the restaurant to review its customer service and be more consistent in the way it serves customers.

A group of four went for Sunday Yum Char and he a great experience. Made reservations in advance and quickly seated upon arrival. The service was good throughout the meal and the staff engaged in positive manner. The food was good and we were able to order the duck and other dishes off the side menu. Plenty of choice and...

We have been here a number of times and the experience has been average to good to very good depending. During our latest dinner here, it was an extremely busy night, and there was a long wait for the dishes to arrive. Service was slow, we took away the teapots to be topped-up ourselves and side plates were not replaced.... More

We are veteran yum char eaters and always go when we are in Wellington or Auckland as we can't get it in the provinces. This is the third time I've eaten at Sun World in the past two years and the quality had improved this visit (it was already good). Staff tend to have better English skills than most yum... More
