Booked a table for 7 adults 2 kids a few days ago. When we were there, we saw another 3 tables reserved with wine glasses arranged, on those tables, but not ours. We asked for wine glasses, and came with those very small size ones. My partner asked if we could have those normal size like those on the other... More

Overall, we had a good dinner experience here. The food was authentic Cantonese-style, very well-prepared, and arrived promptly. Decor was above average for a Chinese restaurant. However, there didn't seem to be enough servers for the crowd; it was difficult to get someone's attention as the staff was very busy.

Good quick and efficient service on arrival with tea all prepared. One of the waitresses pushing the yum char food, was slightly rude, but everyone else was quite helpful and friendly. My only suggestion is for the restaurant to review its customer service and be more consistent in the way it serves customers.

I know you all see crayfish and think money but it is worth every cent. We had fried salt and pepper cray. It was cut up to perfection so each piece that need to come out of shell can and the taste was incredible. The Peking duck was one of the best we had, lamb chops in black been also... More

A group of four went for Sunday Yum Char and he a great experience. Made reservations in advance and quickly seated upon arrival. The service was good throughout the meal and the staff engaged in positive manner. The food was good and we were able to order the duck and other dishes off the side menu. Plenty of choice and...

We have been here a number of times and the experience has been average to good to very good depending. During our latest dinner here, it was an extremely busy night, and there was a long wait for the dishes to arrive. Service was slow, we took away the teapots to be topped-up ourselves and side plates were not replaced.... More

We are veteran yum char eaters and always go when we are in Wellington or Auckland as we can't get it in the provinces. This is the third time I've eaten at Sun World in the past two years and the quality had improved this visit (it was already good). Staff tend to have better English skills than most yum... More

The restaurant is located in Newmarket, Auckland, with convenient parking available around the restaurant. The restaurant is not a posh place but the ambient is good. The captain takes you to your table and immediately serve tea to everyone present and then they start off with a bowl of soup on the house. You placed your order and the food... More

We are locals and think Sun World has the best dim sum in Auckland (and we have tried a lot). We would go there at least once a month. We have also tried many overseas, including Hong Kong, and it really is up there. They have a great selection of food covering all tastes and it is delivered by the... More

My cousin made the reservation and I really liked the place. Being from Toronto, I know my Chinese Food very well. Establishment as large and open, menu had good varieties. I can't say much for value since it was my first trip to NZ, but food quality was very good.
