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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

One of the best yum cha places in Christchurch. The service is always friendly and efficient. The menu has more options than most and the food is excellent

First time here for my family of two adults and three teens. Came as very highly recommended by my parents as the place to go for authentic Chinese food when staying in Christchurch (and none of us live in Christchurch). We loved it! Great tasty...Chinese food, good portion sizes - and came out quite quickly. Unlimited green tea always goes down well. Couldn’t fault the service - nice friendly staff. We’ll definitely be back!More

I have been to Daphne's restaurant many times and each time have found their service slow and unprofessional, I do not rate the food at all and the food is also expensive for what you get. I have noticed that the portion sizes have got...smaller and smaller. I do not recommend this restaurant at all. (I only go because widowed friend of my mother likes the owner of Daphne Restaurant so I take my friends mother there. If it wasn't for her I would avoid Daphne's Restaurant at all cost).More

Have been here a number of times for yum char, good to get here early and avoid the rush. Staff are generally attentive and the food comes out fast. Tasty food with generous portions, caters well to families and larger tables

I have been to daphne's many, many times for dim sum and have never been disappointed. Some of these negative reviews people have made make 0 sense. Good service and fantastic food, great for a budget too.

We took some friends here for a Yum Char lunch. The food was well cooked and tasty. The beef tendon was especially good. For 7 of us it cost $120 which was good. The staff struggled with English, but we got there in the end.

Ate here twice while in Christchurch. One dim sum lunch and I came back for supper after I found the dim sum above average. Dinner was not disappointing. The chef offered some Szechuan dishes and Cantonese dishes. If you are an overseas Chinese traveling the...world but still need to eat Chinese food once in a while, this will more than suffice.More

We visited for dinner after reading some good reviews. We were very disappointed. We ordered the crispy roast chicken (very dry), the stir fried noodles, fried dumplings, chicken and corn soup. Everything was SO bland and had no flavour. It was clear that no care...had gone in to any of the dishes. Will not be back.More
