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.

Group of us 6 adults. Very good authentic Chinese ( Cantonese ) food at competitive prices. What else can I say. We ordered ala carte from the menu & each dish had it's own unique taste; unlike some restaurants.

We had two tables, one of 12 and one of 13. We chose a banquet menu and were delighted with the quality of the food, and the amount. The staff were very friendly.

Had heard good things but we ordered 5 dishes to takeaway and was sorely disappointed as it was 'fish'n'chip' shop quality at twice the price.

Food is great, tasty, and taste homemade. Better than most Chinese restaurant around Palmy and very good value for money. Wished more people knew this place :)

Four of us had the best Chinese meal enjoyed in a long time. Fresh and hot to the table. Adjacent to the Aspree Motor Inn. We would eat here again even if not staying next door

I have visited here three times so far to try out several different items and I have been pleased. The service is very accommodating and nice although not everyone speaks great English they were all very kind. The English speaking host that I have been...interacting with mostly has been very nice. The restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere and is great for groups but I have also eaten here on my own as well. I love being able to relax and enjoy some Asian tea. From what I have tried so far I would recommend the pork shumai dim sum from the yum cha menu, sweet and sour pork, and beef vegetables in black bean sauce. I also like adding chili oil to my rice for extra flavor so try that out if you visit. I look forward to trying out more dishes in the future and seeing if I can find something that tops the last!More

We had a very pleasant dinner for the extended family recently. The food was outstanding and the portions were very generous. We had a banquet and it was very reasonably priced. The service was efficient and the staff most helpful. If there were more restaurants...like this in Wellington, we would be there every week.More

I went to Tasty with my family and had an excellent meal. The surroundings are austere and the location is a bit out of the way but don't be put off by this as the food is delicious. It is plentiful, freshly cooked, hot, steaming......and as the name of the restaurant denotes - tasty. Not only that, it is good value for money. The service is friendly and efficient and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal . We thought that some dishes were even better than what we'd eaten in Hong Kong. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant even though it's out of the way. The good thing is that there is heaps of parking.More

We have been to Tasty on previous occasions a year or so ago and had been very impressed but when we went there for dinner this week were a little disappointed. The restaurant has moved to showing you the menu on a device. This was...hugely problematic for three people to share and slow to work through. I certainly was put off from the start by the menu. The dishes we ordered were very average and certainly not cheap.More

Just needed something light and warming. I stopped in for soup and Chinese tea. Choose wonton soup which is an old favourite of mine really hit the mark. Asked waitress for large she informed me that medium size would be enough, she was correct. Not...very busy Tuesday lunch so very attentive without being intrusive. When traveling back to Palmerston will revisit and try more menu items. 👍🏼More

The prices are all different, it depends on what food you want but the prices is ranged from $4.50 to about $5.50 for a dish. Roughly around those prices, I think 😄
