Looking for a quick meal out and stumbled on the Golden Steamboat. The service was great, the food was delicious and the servings were huge!

All of the dishes that we had - sliced beef with prickly ash and garlic, cumin lamb, salt and pepper squid and eggplant with garlic and coriander were all completely different and superb.

We will definitely return.

Thank Pounamu-s

Like a previous reviewer, we were the only Europeans in the restaurant and had the feeling the staff were slightly bemused by us being there! There was a slight language barrier but they were friendly and the food was amazing, really authentic Chinese food like you get in China, not the "Kiwi" Chinese that you tend to get from most takeaway shops. It is very reasonably priced and the meals are huge. The restaurant was busy and there were a lot of Chinese customers, which is always a good recommendation. A great place for a group or family to share dishes. We'll be eating there on a regular basis, especially when we want a quick, reasonable meal when we're out and about. (NB, they don't cater for gluten free.)

This is by far the best and most aurhentic Chinese food I have ever had. Big flavors and you can feed an army. You need to try this one out!

I ate here twice during a recent visit to the Albany campus of Massey University (12 minutes walk). On both occasions I ordered food to take away to my room at the Albany Executive Motor Inn which is a couple of minutes walk from the restaurant. This is a very popular place to eat steamboat-style food, dumplings and the kind of food that is not generally on offer at ordinary suburban Chinese restaurants. For example, there are lots of dishes that use offal (liver, gizzards etc). On both nights the customers tucking into food at Golden Steamboat were one hundred percent Chinese and Asian folks - always a good sign. The food I ordered was excellent and I only wish i had been there with a bunch of other people so that I could have sampled more of the dishes. Prices were very reasonable. Note, though, that credit cards are only accepted for bills over $50.

There were four of us out to dinner here. We had the hot pot - as they call it! It is a bit like a Chinese version of a fondue. Wow, this was great. Food is good and there is a huge choice of food. The staff were amazing, our waitress (sorry, I can't remember her name) was excellent and explained everything to us. She was a treasure as we were the only Europeans in the restaurant and she obviously understood that we were out of our depth. We would highly recommend an evening here, we just loved it! And we will be back soon to try more options!
