I grabbed a quick takeaway lunch from the buffet selection and was surprised by how fresh it all tasted. Great selection and the meat was tender and plentiful. Will make this a regular stop. $11.50 for a medium container and that was as much as...More

Fast service, lovely food but portion sizes extremely disappointing. Very expensive for what we got. We complained about the portion sizes and this was not very well received by the proprietor no compensation whatsoever. Will never eat here again.

We were lucky enough to walk in and get a table where others were turned away so I would suggest to book. Good food, small menu but very tasty, and good family run business. Certainly ticked the boxes for us for dinner.

Very busy place. We came on a Tuesday night and arrived before 6pm. Within 45 minutes the place was nearly full and a couple of groups had been turned away. Menu is not overly extensive but quite adequate. The food was very good.

One of very few Chinese restaurants in Nelson. Good location, a bit dark when sitting down. Food taste good but not lots of choice. Price is not cheap compare with other restaurants in North island. But if you really miss Chinese food, I would recommend...More
