The only proper Chinese Restaurant in Paihia. For dinner, you can have buffet $32.50 or pick your dishes from the main menu or even takeaway option available. Yummy Asian dishes.

I used the takeaway of king wah while staying in Paihia. The food was really nice and there was tables outside to sit and eat and it was good value. The staff were very friendly.

KIng Wah, has a long menu of the usual Chinese dishes, but also a useful european style menu too. We had a takeout of generous portions of fish and chips which was more than we two could eat at one sitting. Very tasty.

Helpful staff. When I booked told me that a group was in at certain time and so we arrived early enough to be able to get to buffet. Good selection on buffet, very regularly restocked. Tasty food. Good selection.

We had egg fried rice, chicken chow mein, and wontons. This was okay - nothing great but definitely tasty enough for dinner.

The staff are friendly and the food was very tasty. We ordered from the a la carte menu but you can also choose a buffet option that we didn’t try but looked good

This was a takeaway order, with the dishes returned to our apartment. We ordered the BBQ pork (Excellent), Lemon Chicken (Mediocre at best), Steak Chow Mein with crispy noodles (Soft Vermicelli? used, very poor), Scallops (Good) and Wontons (Too much batter, too little meat). We...More

I suggest you book at this time of the year. I think the price is $29.00 for adults and I'm sorry not sure of price for children.
