Our Menus

“To the ruler, the people are heaven; to the people, food is heaven.”

We embrace the cuisine of China, with its depth of history and ancient traditions, and are inspired by the opportunity to apply these traditions to New Zealand’s outstanding produce.

We want to show that, although ancient, many of these dishes can excite and tantalise when presented in a contemporary manner in a modern setting.
