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.

After church meeting on Sunday morning. My host took me to lunch at this Chinese restaurant. To my surprise, I loved it much.

The restaurant, first of all, looked great. I really liked the layout of the facility. The service was really good and the food came out at a decent speed and the food was really good. The food is also priced well. The only flaw is...the food delivery speed.More

Came here with extended family, to share a range of dishes. I ordered the duck off the bone with the wraps and they were divine. I also enjoyed the beans with pork mince, chicken hot pot dish, a spicy noodle soup, and more (Sorry don't...know all the proper names). I am thinking about this restaurant regularly and planning on returning soon for the whole blue cod (we saw it being delivered - yum.) Overall food was excellent, although service slow. We also had to wait 10 minutes to pay our bill, as only one person taking the money.More

Came as a group of 10 for a Sunday yum char. Food came out quickly with friendly and attentive service, hot and fresh. Didn’t seem to have as much flavour as it’s had in the past, and just wasn’t quite as tasty as what we...have had before. Still decent though and plenty on the menu to choose from.More
