Lovely fresh food cooked up & plenty of variety of recipes to choose from! Tastes really nice, but the Restaurant needs a makeover & the owner needs some English lessons! Otherwise pretty good.
If you're looking for home style Chinese cooking, look no further. Fast service, food comes out fresh and piping hot straight from the wok!
Every Good cafe is a place for Chinese food! The menu is bilingual, with the range of food from Northern China and Cantonese food. I even saw an entry for Curry laksa, a Malaysian dish. We ordered two dishes, duck and sweet and sour beef. The beef was coated in batter but the sauce was sweet and sour, and a little spicy, which was a nice twist. The duck was normal, think fatty skin, a sliver of meat and a lot of bone, but that's duck for you. We also ordered a chicken corn soup. This came in a moderately sized bowl. It was hot, and full of chicken bits and corn. Enough salt too. My wife told me that you get a free bowl of rice if you order more than one dish. We had two bowls of rice in the end. The decor has very few embellishments, and is frequented by Chinese people.
Tried this restaurant because they now do online and pick up and was looking for a break from cooking! Was impressed by the authentic taste and flavours. Reasonably priced compared to some other Petone choices. Will definitely order again!
