Time warp back to the 80's when you come here. Original decor from when they opened no doubt. This place has been around for a long time and its no question why. Well priced good tasting food with quick service. This place is nothing flashy but it doesn't need to be. They do the basics right and people come back.... More

Great place for big groups, quick and friendly service, great big round table with the lazy susan in the middle making it easy to share from many dishes.

Dropped in off the street and realised it was a restaurant. However, the ,lovely lady (Ada?) reassured us that they did takeaways, and we ordered a range of good Chinese food. Great taste, plenty for our group, and good value.

We are no strangers to 'Authentic Chinese' food .... we have travelled extensively worldwide and have eaten in some pretty dire 'local' restaurants in the likes of Hong Kong, Shanghai,Beijing, Xian and many other not-so-touristy places as well. TBH, some of the places we have dined in would curl your toenails!!! However, back to Whakatane ......... we were in the... More

Frequent spot for me and my family. Excellent food at reasonable prices able to cater to large groups of people and no one is left hungry due to the large quantities! Service here is awesome too. Highly reccomend

Went out for lunch with friends. We had an average experience due to the abrupt nature of the lady owner/ waitress. She spoke very abruptly (as if we were more of an inconvenience). The meal was pleasant and I enjoyed the music and atmosphere. I felt that the service let this eating establishment down.

I regularly dine in here and the food is exceptional, service is good and during the lunch-time openings - you will not find a better meal for the price. This restaurant caters for large groups better than any other in town.

A new favourite for a reason .... Ada!! What a dynamo she is. Almost single handedly running the whole of this restaurant. And the incredible memory she has ... She will remember exactly what you all had the last time you visited without fail!! A real skill. Sam (her husband) does all the cooking by himself. Despite this, there's never... More

Lovely restaurant, large and spacious. Very friendly and quick service even though the restaurant was full and people coming in all the time to get takeaways. Beautiful food and enough left over to take home for lunch the next day.
