A good selection of food, a little cold but they turned up the heat...good service and friendly. Soup was like warm. Good off Street parking which is off the Main Street. 👍

A run of the mill Chinese buffet restaurant, reasonably priced but very average selection and quality of dishes. Probably worth paying a bit more at another local Chinese eatery.

Don't bother eating in, as the resturant is usually dark and near empty, but as a takeaway shop this is my favourite chinese place in Hawkes Bay. For $12.50 I always know what I'm going to get, and it's always (pretty) fresh, (although can not be called healthy). Good value for money, and one of my favourite places to go... More

It was truly awful. Never have I eaten so little at a buffet. Nothing tasted fresh, and some was inedible

The food took ages when it arrived was good and the buffet was mostly fried food so it was a bit unhealthy.

Only one option that was edible. No desserts, just some tiny cake and cheesecake and an inedible pav that tasted of nuts?!

Went there today and had an enjoyable time. Nice variety of food. Ordered large tray and chose what I wanted. If there wasn't much at the time then one of the cooks made it for me as fast as they could. End result kids were happy and therefore I was happy. Very affordable
