Went here on a Saturday night with a bunch of family friends.
Brought our own wine/champange etc.. Waiter helped us open the bottle but put the corks back in and it popped out, shooted to the ceiling and landed in a bowl of soy sauce which sprayed everyone.
Ordered a number and variety of dishes, however I thought it was a bit on the salty side. One of the dishes ordered was a roast duck – very disappointing as there was hardly any meat on the duck (mainly bones aka the neck area)
Had to ask for the empty plates to be taken away (usually at other places waiters would use their initiative to take empty plates away)
Best you try the place out for yourself, but I would not return, unless I have been invited by someone to go there.
I would not return to this restaurant again and suggest my friends the same as well.
*Also I noticed that the baby seats were covered in grime and filth. I am befuddled that the restaurant was able to get the hygiene certificate. A server also walked around with a large kettle filled with hot boiling water, too big for the server to easily maneuver around. This could cause a large hazardous issue (health & safety) is not something that should be undertaken in any restaurant practice.
The separate billing was not a problem. Will definitely be holding more functions here.
Keep up the good work team.
Went there with friends last month. The food was below average. The lemon chicken was done really rough, two pieces of deep fried chicken breast with commercial sauce. The shrimp fired rice with only 4 or 5 tiny tiny shrimp inside. even the take away in my suburb can do better job.
The boss or manager sat with his friends behind us. Their children were running and shouting whole night. The whole experience was terrible. We won’t be back.
My family has dined at Andrews for an entire year (10+ times). The chef is masterful, the plates are generous and delicious, the service is welcoming. We have never had any troubles, and they frequently have specials on great dishes. Just ask them about it when you arrive, and the discount is about half off!
We have been lucky to have found this place as it just started, and it only gets more popular every visit. If there was any perfect time to try Andrews, it’s now. It can be casual or formal, and they do awesome parties.
I believe they’re also opening up for lunch buffets, and I’m sure it’ll be just as fantastic. You can park round the corner of the road, and there’s a stretch next to the river bank very close by.
Who knows? I may even see you there soon. (Look for the girl who orders lemon chicken with glazed eyes of anticipation.)
the staff were very welcoming and friendly throughout the duration of our meal nothing was a problem
i will definatly be going back to this restaraunt
Could not fault the food at all, it was really yummy, hot to the table, and everybody enjoyed themselves.
Thanks Andrews R, your one of the best!
Nice environment – Exceptional Service. We ordered our food and it was promptly bought out to us. the food was really yummy, the best Chinese food i have tryed in the lower hutt region so far. we will defiantly be coming back.
Thanks so much.
After perusing the photographs of the dishes in the window, I decided that the lunch, $8.80 specials, certainly looked tasty and they were the decider to entice me inside the establishment.
I was greeted with a warm friendly smile and was promptly seated with a bottle of chilled water.
The recommended Korean Chicken with Steamed Rice was certainly wonderful. Flavoursome, plentiful quantities of carrots, zucchinni, cauliflower, onion and of course alot of chicken with perfectly cooked rice. I would describe it as a Sweet and Sour dish with an extra ‘zing’ of ginger.
The service was excellent, my lunch was beautiful and amazing value.
Highly recommend and I will certainly go back to partake of their other lunchtime specials!
The food is of the highest level Asian cuisine and we will definitely be back many more times to come. Staff are attentive but not obtrusive. A dining experience we will tell all our our friends about. Thanks Andrew for a great night out!
