Decor tired, balcony available but occupied by smokers. We only went for takeaway so can't comment on the dining in experience. Food was OK.

We were looking forward to the meal after reading reviews and viewing their web site but it was average. The service was poor with us having to ask them for basic things all the time. It was understandable as they didn't have much staff working....More

We had a truly horrible meal last night at this place. The worst thing was when we told the owner how bad it was he did seem to care in the least. Avoid this place please.

We found this restaurant to be expensive, not very clean and below average food. The pepper and garlic beef was in a gravy that had very little flavour and the meat was over cooked. The chicken skewers were just ok and looked much larger in...More

We were hoping for beautiful flavours and a fantastic meal but unfortunately we left very disappointed. As we arrived some of the tables had not been cleared but put this down to a huge group must have all left at the same time. Went to...More

This was literally the worst Chinese I've ever had. It was greasy, over sweet, over salted, over cooked. This was such a disappointment I went home and had a sandwich. Will never even consider going again.

My partner and myself went here for dinner. Firstly my lemon lime bitters tasted like dishwashing liquid. It was definitely the one in the bottle from the supermarket. Secondly the waiter forgot our entree (in an otherwise empty restaurant) and our mains were served roughly...More

After a long day of skiing, my whole family was tired and we found a ‘fine dining establishment’ named China Grill, which had free tables when we booked 15 minutes before we arrived. We arrived and the decor was very nice and oriental style, although...More

Wanaka唯一的一家中式餐館,裝潢很不錯,還有陽台可以坐,景色很美,全Wanaka唯一喝的到青島啤酒的地方,我很喜歡他們家的特製秘醬薯條(NumNum chips)還有酸菜魚跟酸辣湯,請師傅加辣一點,辣的超過癮!跟Wanaka貴俗俗的餐廳比起來,這間份量很大又划算些,當然價格還是會比國內貴,但可以吃到湯湯水水的中餐已經心滿意足。 The only one Chinese restaurant in Wanaka. The Numnum chips and China beer are so yummy. Great service. It suits a family/friends sharing food together, Chinese style dinning way. The lunch special is a great deal.

We were hoping to find a decent Chinese restaurant in Wanaka at last.. Unfortunately this wasn't it. The special noodle soup was a generous portion of noodles with a small amount of broth, 5 small cubes of meat and a few thin slices of vegetables...More
