Saw the reviews and the high 4 rating, so I gave it a try.

Big space, huge. Friendly staff.

Not as much of the veggie side as I hoped but a reasonable amount of options. I opted for the 'Adjun' (sorry not sure) Vegetable Chow Mein as it had a greater variety of veg than the normal veg chow neon; according to the waitress.

The dish arrived and it was massive, enough for two at least.

As promised a lot of different veg; some I wasn't sure what they were. Some of it wasn't really to my taste but it was still an enjoyable dish.

At first I though it was going to have too much sauce but it was fine. Plenty of noodles.

Didn't blow my socks off but overall it was a nice meal. $22

If you like good Chinese food, this is not the restaurant to go to.

The food here is just ok. Not very tasty. We ordered 3 dishes. Orange beef that didn't have any tang, Singapore noodles which was very bland, and a shrimp dish which was overcooked and very bland also. We had to keep asking for things - like a napkin - and never got serving spoons to put the food on our plates. It made it quite hard to get some of the gravy.

The restaurant was nice enough and not very noisy also not very busy.

This is a great restaurant with very good service. The restaurant is large so great for large party groups. Tea is served quickly and orders are take fast too. The food is really tasty with an extensive menu. The servings are really large and one dish can often be fine for two people. We have always ordered a dish each and always end up with being offered to have what we couldn't eat bagged up to take home. Staff always have offered to do this which is kind. It's reasonably priced and would say good value if you share a dish or two. Probably one of our favourites for Chinese in Wellington.

Dining was a pleasure.
Friendly and efficient service with a smile.
Told them we were short of time which was no problem. All the food arrived quickly and was delicious.

Don't forget to book in advance as this is a popular restaurant serving irresistible trolleys and trays of tantalising foods in rapid succession. So much choice and food on taste. I dined at Saturday lunch with some much loved Malaysian friends resident in Wellington and this restaurant is one of their favourites.
Would certainly go again...in a heartbeat.
