We were staying near this restaurant while in Auckland. It was always full in the evening and we were looking for a quick and cheerful meal. The duck was nice and the vegetable dish was massive. Complimentary tea and an unidentified soup came with the meal. If you are looking for reasonably priced meal and time is short, you will... More

Prices in Auckland city center are quite expensive. This restaurant is not a fashionable cozy one, but the dish here are reasonably nice Chinese ones. You may also take them out.

The roast duck was fantastic my wife loved it. I had a noodle dish with pork that was unbelievable. The server was most helpful in the selection the hostess was very pleasant. The price was right. If you're looking for ambience, go somewhere else. If you're looking for the best Chinese food in Auckland this is it. Very clean.

It can get busy but walk in and take any seat available. This is NOT fine dining but back alley basic Hong Kong Chinese style. The prices are reasonable and you get plenty of food for your money.

Stumbled across the place. Really pleasantly surprised. Great staff and very friendly. Simple layout and the quality of the food is bang-on. Sweet and Sour Pork is Wow!. Also the BBQ on rice is great. Incredible range. Friendly atmosphere, quick turnaround on tables. A new 'go-to' place for me. It's my once a week treat. Love it!

Fresh crispy not too sweet. The sweet and sour pork was awesome. Good plane rice a real yum chicken broth to start with. The sizzling satay chicken was also a highlight and a great price. Good cheap food ideal for sharing with a big group.
