After seeing how busy Jimmy Jacks was we decided to come and get some takeaway Chinese from here. We got a range of dishes and shared them. Food was really good and we all enjoyed it 👍🏼

We ordered the large take away dish. You can't dish for yourself, they do. What a joke. The contained was half packed with the most terrible, chewy and cold food. When I complained she said that's what it is. Pathetic!!!! If you want disappointment, go...to this restaurant. One of our sides were sweet&sour chicken. It wasn't even covered in sauce, it was dry and yukky!!More

I guess the only chinese restaurant here, they have table service but also lunch box for whom wants quick lunch. It was good taste and paid only NZD 13.50 for medium size.

We chose to order from the menu instead of the buffet, not sure if that was a good choice. The food was acceptable, but we had better Chinese. All a bit blunt.

So good to find a nice Chinese restaurant in Paihia, especially on the lunar New Year’s Eve. Our decision to come here for dinner is instantaneous since today we (as Chinese) always have a reunion dinner with our family. This restaurant serves A la carte...and buffet. It was super busy when we got here after 6:30pm. Even so, we got seated pretty quickly. Our food also arrived quickly. The dishes are yummy and delicious. If you like some good Chinese food in Paihia, do come here to give it a try. This place also do lunch in case if you are deciding where to go for lunch.More

This is a good Chinese restaurant tucked away in an alley behind the main street – very busy because of the obviously popular eat as much as you can buffet there is also an extensive menu of Chinese favorites – service and pricing average –...enjoyable change of cuisineMore

I suggest you book at this time of the year. I think the price is $29.00 for adults and I'm sorry not sure of price for children.
