Had lunch with my daughter who was holidaying in Rotorua with us over the Xmas holidays. Had always wanted to try this restaurant but wished we haven't. They brought everything to the table at once as the chinese seem to eat that way but westerners don't. One of the dishes we ordered was combination chow mein, don't know what happened... More

Great food though the meal didn't come with rice which I'm glad we figured out before we got back to the hotel. Friendly staff and quick service Recommend

We decided to give this place a go despite reservations on entering the restaurant. In fact we were advised that gods would take at least 45 mins so should be looking elsewhere even though the restaurant had only a single table occupied at the time!! Food was unexpectedly good and certainly had the interesting flavours from Shanghai that I recalled,... More

The restaurant is mainly catering for the tour groups. There's no way anyone in the local would ever come here. We had 6 small dishes for 10 people. Steamed eggs; tasteless cold pasta; stir fried cabbage; mixed broccoli & cauliflower; a few pieces of steamed pork; carrot & lamb fat & a massive bowl with only 1/4 amount of soup... More

So me and my partner were craving a Chinese. Despite it's appearance we said we'd give this place a go, wrong decision!!!! None of the tables had been cleared from previous guests, we got to our table and got brought menus. The waiter seemed a bit flustered which I can completely relate to as I was a waitress myself. Long... More

To say this place is a restaurant is a disgrace. Kitchen staff cleaning tables with buckets, the kitchen covered by a shower curtain, services was non existent, "waiter" forgot my girlfriends order. Curry was bland. Overall this should close down as it's just plain awful.

You know what it is like when you get a hankering for sweet and sour pork... So off we set for Chopsticks. Big mistake. Average food. Farcical service - and they tried to serve us beers at room temperature (and it was a hot day today in Rotorua). Paying the bill was the easiest part of the evening - the... More

We arrived about 8:30 on a Saturday night without a reservation and we greeted politely and shown to a table. One of us is Chinese, and ordered For us. We are well used to authentic Chinese dishes (none of the westernised stuff for us, thanks!) and we were very pleased with our selections. Five people, six dishes $100 = happy... More
