Dumplings amazing! I would return simply for these!
Comprehensive menu, wich was great.
Really dubious songs on the large screen kareoke thing, but I guess that adds to the character.
Great food and reasonably priced. Will be back.
I gave them a call asking whether they did DanDan noodles. They said yes. I was soo excited that I went here for dinner.
Looked at the menu but did not find the DanDan noodles that I was after. Asked the waitress and she suggested this dry noddle with side dish of this oily meat and veges where you add the condiments into your dry noodles yourself. it was an interesting dish.
Would be nice if they did make dandan noodles.
Every experience is most enjoyable and as good as the last, great food, great service, great people.

The menu is authentically Chinese – hence contains a lot of offal dishes (hearts, etc). We don’t eat offal, so this limited our choice somewhat. We ordered chicken and sweet corn soup (excellent); stir-fried pork strips (also very good) and spicy fish. The fish was bits of chewy, dried-up, coated and deep fried stuff in a strangely-flavoured sauce, not at all what we had expected from reading the menu. Rather disappointing, especially as all the other customers (all Asian) were enjoying the steamboat!
The place was cold, but all the steamboats soon steamed up all the windows. Perhaps we just made a wrong choice from the menu. All in all, we enjoyed most of our meal, but we have had better.
However, since the steamboat is their signature dish, it wouldn’t have hurt these meanies to let us try it if they really wanted to attract new customers! (N.B. we had made it clear that we would happily have paid any difference). Because of their attitude, we probably won’t bother to go back.
Bear in mind, I’m Chinese by origin, American by nationality, and multicultural by birthright. So, I’ve been around the block when it comes to “authentic” Chinese cuisine.
We hit the Holy Grail this evening when we decided to check out Red Hill for our weekly night out. Both my fiance, who is a stalwart Kiwi, born and raised who lived in Asia for about a decade, and I, thought the food was EX-CELL-ENT, and stuffed ourselves silly with the food available. Just so you know, we ordered the gamut.
spring rolls (very Western, can’t go wrong appetizer, it came out Cantonese style with cabbage and carrots and a sweet/sour/spicy dipping sauce)
cumin lamb and chicken heart skewers (INCREDIBLE, like China and only NZ$1 each)
dry fired string beans with minced pork (YUM)
pork belly with green bell peppers (capsicum) and onions (like CRACK)
Everything was delicious. We felt like we were back in China. Kudos and compliments to the chef.
Tip: Order steamed rice, because you’re gonna need it to eat with all of the gorgeous strong flavors here.
Our meal came out to about $56 with large beer and glass of red wine.
p.s. There is also hot pot, with lamb and veggies and split mild and spicy (mala) portions for the hot pot. We’ll be checking it out soon.
