Delish Bao and customer service was good despite it being very busy! Roast duck was good but would have been better with some sort of sauce. Overall really decent place to eat in Ōtautahi!

Love the food here. They are based in what is like a restaurant food court. Great size and I believe value for money. I always need to take a doggie bag home. They do from dumplings and bao bubs to bowls and noodle dishes.

We got lots of dishes to share for family of 4. Everyone enjoyed all the dishes & taste was delicious. The meals came out quickly we had so much left over we asked for takeaway took it home.

Good selection of Asian food. I had the dumpling 🥟 selection/platter. Nice to be able to at least four different dumplings. (A little expensive perhaps 🤔, but tasty and authentic). Staff were very friendly.

A friend recommended we try the fried flat noodle dish with chicken and was most pleased I did as it was super yummy. I will be back again soon.

Today my friend and I just wanted a bite to eat after a busy day. I had no idea what to get so I chose the apple mango cinnamon rolls with house gelato. I was already pumped about getting to pick which gelato I wanted...with them (you have to try their strawberry cheesecake flavour) but when they came out they were the most beautiful dessert I have ever laid eyes on! And I consider myself to be a dessert connoisseur. They were almost too pretty to eat but I'm glad I ate them because my tastebuds were in paradise! Whoever your chef is, tell them they are doing an amazing job. I will be thinking about this dessert all day tomorrow <3More

Okay dumpling spot in a cool food hall. Eightgrains has a platter that I thought was fun. Overall it was a bit underwhelming though.
