Wow! What can I say?! First time eating here and the food was delicious. We had duck pancakes, fried chicken and pork belly bao buns. Absolutely delicious. Price was reasonable for the quality of food we received and the service was impeccable/impressive. We’ll be back again to try more on the menu :-)

Came here on the recommendation of TripAdvisor reviews. If you want something a little different then you should try here. Hubby and I had 3 shared plates between us. the bruschetta the duck dumplings and the bar port belly buns. The plates of food come out in any order once they are ready from the,it hen. On first arrival with out a reservation the restaurant was very busy amd we were warned that there was a 30 min delay in the kitchen. however after only about 10 min wee were advised that the kitchen could take our order. We were grateful to be kept so in formed. We decided to have the cheesecake dessert which was also delicious and not the cheesecake presentation. You would normally expect. $84 for the food and a glass of wine and beer.

We stumbled upon this tucked away restaurant during our first visit to Palmerston North & were lucky enough to get a table one evening. We sat out on the deck, which I was dubious about, but it was in fact great - lots of activity and liveliness
We shared 3 plates, all of which were superb, especially the Peking duck pancakes and the service was excellent, friendly staff without being over the top as so many are these days
would highly recommend

Busy and crowded restaurant, requires booking. Half of the floor are normal tables with chairs, half tall pub tables with pub stools, be aware when booking table. We had the tall table with pub stools - supremely uncomfortable seating for dinner. Food arrives one dish at a time to be shared. Food was very good, but the overall dining experience not outstanding.
