Have visited several times and keep returning. A great Chinese restaurant with fabulous food at a reasonable price. Clearly not 5 star but equally a great local asset that is affordable, clean with a fantastic menu of very flavour some food. Good service, and good parking at the door or off the side street. Well worth a visit.

Typical Cantonese / HK style cuisine and the portions are generous and affordable. This is a suburban restaurant so the decor and service is practical rather than polished - but Hey, who eats Chinese for the silver service?! Flavors are rich and well executed although you need to request No MSG as it's added by default. Dine in or Take... More

Flourishing is really more a restaurant than a cafe. It serves some magnificent Chinese food. We were there last Saturday and luckily we booked because by about 2 minutes after we were seated the placed was absolutely full. It is a but loud because of the small space but the atmosphere is acceptable. The food is just fantastic. Must try... More

The food at Flourishing is great. We have visited a number of times and always come out happy. The prices are a bit high, however the portions sizes are large. Ambiance and service, could do with some improvement .... but with the food being great, this can be forgiven.

My family have visited this place several times...and still got impressed during our latest. Kids' all-time favourites: shrimp balls; lemon chicken; sweet and sour pork. The prices are very reasonable given the serving size. Quality is consistently good. Service is fast. Flourishing Cafe will always be our first choice for a quick, no frills, palate/tummy-pleasing Chinese restaurant in west Auckland.... More

We were there last night and have been there a couple of times a few years back. The menu prices are pretty standard and the meals come quick, are good sized portions and tasty. We were very disappointed, however, to discover that we were being billed for things that we didn't ask for - soup, tea, rice (my wife had... More
