About
White + Wong's 'East meets West' cuisine takes classic street foods from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand - the noodles, soups, curries and delicious dumplings - and created an eclectic menu to pick and choose from to suit. Flavoursome Massaman and red curry pastes made from scratch. Oysters, and sashimi with freshly ground wasabi root. We're not purists, so if it's tasty, White + Wong's are steaming it, frying it and serving it up fresh and fast. In some dishes you'll find untouched classics like the Bang Bang chicken and BBQ pork buns, while others, whole Peking Ducks, numbing & fragrant prawns and BBQ meats are our take on Chinese street food, tweaked and re-imagined.

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.

We walked right in without a booking. The service was good and the food was amazing! I'm still thinking about it days later. We also had some fantastic cocktails before leaving and It is a great location near the water.

Went out for dinner they forgot my dinner meal and when I asked where it was told they had forgotten it. They then offered a $40 credit on a $300 bill. Frankly this was a special occasion for the family and frankly was not impressed...with the offer or there attitude - suggest you skip this place or you may have a similar outcome.More

Extremely Disappointing Experience - Rude Staff Ruined the Evening I had high hopes for this bar as I have been there few times. The ambiance was decent, but any potential enjoyment was overshadowed by the exceptionally rude staff. From the moment I walked in, it...was clear that customer service was not a priority. The bartender was super rude when asked about a mere serviette for the second time. He was rude enough to shake his head and raise his eyebrows saying “i am going to grab it”. It felt like I was bothering them just by being there. He was unapproachable, dismissive, and outright rude. On a contrary, the other staff members were kind enough and the food was very good. We didn’t bother to stay for more than one drink as the experience was very unwelcoming. I won't be returning to this bar for a while now. There are plenty of other bars where you can enjoy good drinks without the added dose of attitude.More

Awful customer service, will not be returning. The manager on shift 20th May 2024 (evening) was diabolical, his customer service was the worst I’ve ever seen. He was unwilling to help, argumentative and just plain rude to all the guests in my party. Will NOT...be returning. If white and wongs have any sense they will reassess who they employ in their management team.More

Waitresses had amazing service and the food was amazing! Went with work colleagues so we needed to split the bill but Hary the manager would not allow us too and refused to help us find a solution. Very disappointed in his service, his lack of...duty of care to customers, and quite frankly left a sour taste in our mouths. He was very unpleasant and unprofessional. Thankfully, the guy at the Bar Jay, let us pay separately so we could be on our way. Such a shame to end the night with good food and good service from the other workers. How is guy even a manager?More

Returning to visit Auckland after over five years, we were comforted to see that although there was much new development in the area, White & Wong's at Viaduct Harbour remained. Yes, it was still a bit pricey - this time for dinner instead of lunch...- but as good as we remembered. Our luck held out that evening because we not only were seated without a prior reservation but also our table looked out over the water. Ordering family style, we dined on Tofu Curry, Chicken Fried Rice and a Crispy Fried Whole Market Fish - all gluten free which is a major change for me from five years ago. They pointed out that over 50% of their menu items could be prepared without gluten for us...bonus! A nice bottle of New Zealand chardonnay (plus a few more glasses) rounded out a wonderful meal.More

We turned up and we were seated, our waiter didn’t know how to smile, he wasn’t very respectful of our pregnant friends requirements, also not all our food came out and we were charged for everything we ordered. The waghu dumplings tasted like boiled meatballs....Food didn’t have the best flavours as was expected due to great experiences in Queenstown. We’re expecting the same experience as Queenstown, and unfortunately very disappointed in the food and the service. You need to get up to Queenstown level.More

We walked in and had no problem. We were seated in the area that used to be the burger place. My husband was craving oysters and we ordered that along with half duck, shaking beef and W+W fried rice. We were stuffed and the food...was delicious. Service was friendly, we were served plain rice instead of what we ordered but our server quickly rectified the problem. Drinks arrived after our oysters but not a big deal. The place was buzzing. This was our second time here and it was as good as the first. Thank you guys!More

Visited White + Wong after friend’s suggestion and certainly didn’t disappoint! Food was amazing, though a little pricey. Very busy when we visited but didn’t take long to be served. Great location, would definitely go back!

We were in Auckland for a couple of days from a cruise ship and I researched the many restaurants in the port area. We wandered around the lovely traffic-free harbour front and White and Wong looked great. Got a table on the outside deck overlooking...the water. We requested a table with proper chairs as a lot of local restaurants have so many stool type seats, just a hard round stool with no back, beyond uncomfortable but plenty of people seemed happy with that. The chap at reception was very happy with that and we had a nice table for four for just the two of us. The waitress was very sweet and efficient, explained the menu. My problem is that I can’t tolerate chilli, though I like all other Asian spices, so a lot of the menu was off limits for me. I thought that I could just order something without the chilli but she explained that in many of the dishes is wasn’t just a garnish but an integral part of the dish. My boyfriend who like chilli had the Kung Pao chicken which he said was excellent. I just ordered a dish of broccolini in miso and shared his fried rice. We barely ate half the rice as a single portion would feed at least three. I ordered a glass of NZ rose and some ice cubes. When I ordered a second glass the (different) waiter brought with another glass of ice cubes without being asked. Top marks for noticing and great service! We enjoyed the experience so much that we intend to return tomorrow for the (chilli free!) Peking duck. A great restaurant with lots of style in a lovely waterside setting.More

Busy day in the City and this is the perfect venue for a winddown meal right next to the classic yachts on the water. Great atmosphere and flavoursome food coupled with a good selection of wines. The staff are great, attentive but not in your...face. Highly recommended to anyone who loves Asian fusion food.More

On the water but very limited water views, busy, hot very average Chinese food. Well overrated for me. Wine prices were OK. Would not return, although I am sure without this review it will continue to attract crowds. I think it's a tourist trap to...be honest. It's a chain apparently. Our waitress was lovely. I know its Chinese and it's fast food, but if you are wanting a more leisurely dinner, this is not the place. It's very noisy (it's Chinese).More

The duck is sliced, and no shredded option as far as I know. The duck is succulently tender, and I think much nicer than shredded which is often dry. I can highly recommend it.
