Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Been to this restaurant several times. Took a banquet menu of $30.00 per person. Very very disappointed. Soup appears to have been watered down, cripsy chicken was very dry, honey bbq pork was uneatable, sweet and sour pork was not nice. The only thing was...nice was the black pepper beef and rice. Very very disappointed. This meal certainly was not a Chinese mealMore

Went again for dinner to celebrate as a family. We took the banquet for $28.00 each. Which gives you a wide variety of dishes. The food was good fresh and hot. The restaurant was fully glad that we booked. Its a BYO which is great...as you can bring you favorite wineMore

I went to this restaurant with 20 other people and we had a banquet for $28.00 each. We had about 10 courses altogether and the food was excellent. Have been before and would certainly go again.

Had a beef in pepper sauce which was chewy and full of fat and gristle. On complaining the owner didn't even show her face so had to pay the full price. Used to go quite often but not again

Arrived at the restaurant at 5.30pm and were taken to a 12 seat table with a “lazy Susan” in centre to allow food and drinks to be passed around and diners to help themselves. We decided to have a banquet and share whatever came. What...came was literally amazing. Soup was tasty chicken and corn, followed by an entree of mixed fried and steamed delights with sauces to add to the taste. Next came the mains fairly rapidly so everyone had a serving of food in front of them and the “lazy 💕Susan” moved around pretty quickly. Dishes were varied, colourful and tasty. The food was plentiful and we packed six boxes with mains to take away. We had a variety of ice cream sundaes to finish off. There was a high chair available for the baby. We had a great time. Was food authentic Chinese - I don’t know but there were plenty of Chinese eating there which is a good indication that they enjoy the food. We did.More

Great Authentic Chinese foods, probably the best variety menu I have seen in NZ. Portions are well sized. Had 6 Starters and 5 Mains between 6 of us and was ample, makes for about 27.50 each with corkage. Great value

Any restaurant nowadays that still uses frozen cubed vegetables in their food gets no praise from me, and to have one of us ask for a coffee on a Wednesday Night (mid winter) and be told that the machine is switched off, so no coffee,...is appalling service. Lazy staff, boring atmosphere and sub-standard food for the price (overpriced actually) BEST ADVICE? GO TO GO FISH, 103-105 JACKSON STREET PETONE, amazing food and service, even if its a takeaway and small table dine-in.More

I tried the half roast duck, it was tender and crispy skin so cooked well. The restaurant is very inviting with modern feel and decor. Very friendly and attentive service. I will go back.

We dined here with my parents and two 5 yr olds. We didn’t have a reservation, but were swiftly ushered to a suitable table. Orders were taken when they saw we were ready and less than 10-15 mins later the food started to arrive. We...ordered salt & pepper squid, minus the spice for the kids. Beef and black bean, orange chicken, chicken & vegetable schezwan, and another chicken & veggie dish followed, plus an entree of pork dumplings and rice for the table. Food was packed full of flavour and the kids were going crazy with all the entertainment of the multiple dishes arriving and being shared. Service was very good. This is a great spot for uncomplicated, quick food that appeals to the whole family. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town.More

We go to Lower Hutt every couple of months, and we try to eat at a different restaurant every time we go down there. A friend had been telling us about Taste Amazing for months so we finally went. Totally worth it! Four of us...went, and we ordered a bunch of entrees that we shared, and then a main each. We all had 2 drinks each, and the whole lot came to a little under $200. Great value! The food came out very promptly (I couldn't believe how fast our first entrees came out), waitresses (and the hostess) checked in with us regularly to see if we needed anything else, and our drinks were refreshed as soon as we asked for new ones. The place was very busy, but the service was still fantastic, and the food was very tasty. There are A LOT of choices on the menu, so I think the longest part of the evening was us trying to choose what to order. Our favourite dish of the night was the Deep Fried Pork Spare Ribs in Garlic and Pepper (honestly we could have all eaten a serve of these each as our starter and been happy), but none of the food was disappointing. We will def. add it to our list of places to go back to one day.More

We have been here multiple times over the last year, we always go for Saturday Lunch so can’t talk about the dinner service. This place has been consistent every time, it’s so yummy. Food comes out when it is ready but there is only a...couple of minutes between each dish arriving. Can’t say enough positive about this for our tastes. The only place we take our leftovers home from. Always yum!!!More

Staff were friendly and accommodating, service was prompt and efficient. The only thing lacking was the food which wasn’t bad, yet it wasn’t anything special or a ‘must have’. All round, good but probably won’t come again.
