An unassuming little restaurant that "punches way above its weight" and is always busy, but just walk in, only a short wait at worst...the address on the business card is 350 Queen Street, not 304, maybe they moved ? You can BYO as well as buy there, and at the time of our 3 visits (just so good we had... More

Juicy, tender, BBQ pork on rice??? YES SIR!!! The best I have ever eaten! This is one of my favourite takeaways stores. It is always packed with customers, however I always receive my order within 2-3 mins at the most. If your a looking for a good asian takeout for a reasonable price in Auckland CBD then this is the... More

We had Chicken Soft Noodles and Shredded Fried Noodles. The first was ok but the latter was tasty. Quantity was good as the price. Staff was nice

Amazing selection of food for a very cheap price! Can easily feed 2 people for under $40. Staff are very friendly and always helpful. Myself and my partner have returned many times because its always a great experience!

Very rude staff and unacceptable attitude. Never listen customers requests, make customers feels if you don't like, just go to other place. Small food portion with over priced value. I will never go back again and NOT recommend to anyone. Restaurant hygiene also is a big issue.

Dined with family at the BBQ Duck Cafe for dinner recently, the cafe was busy and had a good atmosphere, we were seated after a short wait and quickly offered drinks, the menu had a great range of dishes including many varieties of duck, service was quick, the staff were friendly and the food was great

This place is my 'local' when I'm at uni! They have an extensive menu with loads of options for all diets and dietary requirements. The decor of the restaurant is pretty outdated and tired, but it doesn't matter when the food tastes as good as it does! The service is very fast, not so friendly but they are polite. I... More

Although a busy place, we have always been warmly welcomed and a table sorted out for us. Never have we been disappointed in the quality of the food or the service. In fact they have remembered our particular likes and dislikes and always endeavoured to please. A great place to go for a meal before an evening show.

Thank Elizabeth B
