First time here on a Sunday evening. Meals very good size and tasty. The only thing I can critique is that the appetizers that we received weren't hot enough(as in heat) they were just warm. Would've been more enjoyable with some heat. Also we sat...in a corner where the lighting wasn't that bright. The service was very attentive. We will be happy to return again and try some different dishes.More

We were very impressed with everything to do with this restaurant. The service was friendly and inviting, a great selection on the menu and the drinks menu was just as extensive. When the food arrived the flavours were fantastic, The food look good and tasted...good. There was good crowd while we were there but sound was not bad.. if we lived locally this would be a regular restaurant that we visited.More

We had a lovely experience at Rockyard restaurant. The decor is warm and welcoming with colourful laterns decorating the ceiling. We ordered tasty popcorn chicken and spring rolls to start. For mains we had sizzling beef and a pork dish. The flavours were excellent and...food was fresh and light. The service was friendly and attentive. We are keen to return and try the two for one deal on Tuesdays.More

We went on a whim having walked past earlier in the day. Incredibly good food and a decent selection of drinks. The staff were incredibly kind and were great fun. Serving sizes were very fair for the price. We noted the green popcorn chicken and...the pork belly was particularly good. Atmosphere was great, good music and nice decorations.More

I popped in for a meal by myself without a booking during a work trip to Welly. Googled some menus looking for somewhere to get a nice bit of salmon, and got just what I was looking for, Really friendly staff who found me a...spot no worries, and were happy to acommodate some small tweaks to menu dish. The Ying Yang salmon was awesome. Perfectly cooked - still pink and super succulent in the middle. Good fair portion too, which I was hoping for with the price. My only criticism would be overall the plate was pretty oily - It would have benefited from less oil and something a bit fresher to cut through the richness. Both front of house members I was helped by were lovely and really friendly. Thanks :) I'll be back. P.S. Sorry the photo here really doesn't do it justice - my bad photography, the plating was actually great.More

All our orders were amazing. We enjoy the easy gf experience with most dishes suitable for a coeliac. Fresh tasty and interesting and half the price of our meal last night!

Went for a birthday dinner and had a great meal. We were sat upstairs at a table for two but with a view out to the street. Not loud but lots of doof doof music from the bars nearby. Didn’t put us off at all...though. Food and service were excellent. Meals were huge and well priced so we definitely didn’t leave hungry. Definitely recommend. Duck curry and tamarind noodles were outstandingMore

Service was pretty poor as I did not get our drinks until after the mains had arrived. Beef Noodle Soup taste like dishwater. Charged 2% extra for Credit Cards. Overated. Would not go back.

Sadly did not live up to the reviews I had read. Entrees - dumplings were like eating a thick pattie rather than a light mix of the ingredient you’d expect for a dumpling inner. Pork during rolls were nice but very oily. Mains - Clay...pot braised pork was odd. Pork was dry left floating in a liquid the texture of soy sauce. The noodle dishes were very expensive for what was received and what was received lacked flavour requiring my to add my own sauce. Will not return as food was below par made worse by how much you paid for it.More
