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

We go to Daphne’s quite regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is great and the service friendly. It’s good value too. Love the barbecue chicken.

We came here for a quick meal and loved the selection of authentic chinese food. Tried the prawn ball special, the tofu special and the fish maw soup. All yum! Highly recommended.
