“Yum Cha most enjoyable”

Lucky Seafood Restaurant
Ranked #36 of 62 Restaurants in Manukau
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 April 2016

We were taken to Lucky Seafood Restaurant for Saturday lunch by friends and the first thing I noticed was how many Chinese were eating here (and relatively few Europeans). Service was prompt, staff attentive and the restaurant busy. We thoroughly enjoyed a range of dishes - including squid, chicken claws, beef tendons (tripe), prawn dumplings and more - finishing with custard tarts. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy Yum Cha

We are regulars - usually once a week. Sometimes we are two of seemingly few Europeans amongst many Chinese (a sure sign that the food is authentic). The service is usually frantic, the food great, and always with a very warm welcome. run by very dedicated and passionate owners, worth a visit.

If you want amazing food with super friendly service (especially the host Jean) then give Luckys a try.
The hot and spicy pork chops, green beans and chilli chicken were particular favourites.
Great value for money and BYO to boot!!!!
Won't get better in Auckland

We went there with a few friends for dinner.

My pet hate with Chinese or ethnic eating places - service staff who can barely communicate in English.

Food is okay, typically Hong Kong cooking style. The long green beans were good. Portion size is small compared to other similar Chinese eating places while the price / cost is higher.

There are better choices around Howick / Pakuranga vicinity.

There are quite a lot of eateries in Somerville; most of them are small ones and Lucky Seafood is considered a comparatively bigger one. I was there for yum-cha. Customers look mostly like locals who like to take care of themselves in term of services. Dim-sums (small dishes) are pushed out in trolleys or brought in trays, and stopped at the customers' tables for choosing. Food, in generally, is average - a bit better than a stomach-filler.
