We had a great meal here and after having two small lates of dumplings and a good fish of the day, decided that the way to go here is all dumplings/wontons and maybe a salad. Really good stuff! Front desk was very helpful getting us seated, good teamwork in serving us!

This restaurant is one of my favourites and is in the perfect location in Ponsonby. My favourite are the pork belly buns and tiger prawn dumplings. You can’t go wrong eating here.

We arrived early for our reservation - to a restaurant that was nearly empty - at 6:00. Our party of three was seated at a table less than four square feet - in what would be a busy corner. No room for feet, purses - anything - and no backs on the stubby stools.

The “hostess” refused requests to re-seat us at any one of about 24 tables with real chairs - insisting that every other table was “reserved”. I can believe that they were - but we had eaten enough in Auckland to know that the restaurant wouldn’t possibly be full for another ninety minutes - by which time we would have been finished eating.

This woman was unpleasant in every sense of the word and we decided to return to The Depot on Federal Street. - where we had a delightful meal after only a short wait (without a reservation.)

We would recommend Amano, The Engine Room or Antoine’s very much and suggest avoiding Blue Breeze unless you like “noisy” and “rude staff”. Life’s too short!!

The food was delicious. Flavoursome and fresh with authentic flavours. The cocktails were also delicious however slightly disappointing as they took quite a while to arrive at our table after they were ordered. The chocolate dessert we shared was particularly delicious. Will happily return!

Great location to people watch, while having a drink and some good food. Great chicken salad packed with flavour and heaps of chicken. Finally a salad that delivers on quality of ingredients, and also actually has chicken. Delicious broccoli in sticky sauce and rice cooked to perfection. Staff attentive, know what is in the food and can give good recommendations. Its not cheap however, so for a special occasion or if youve just got your pay - but it is Ponsonby Road so to be expected
