Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

The China Grill menu ranges from en­trees ($9; we en­joyed the dumplings and spring rolls) to soup ($9 for a large bowl, $3 for small), and mains ($24 - $28).

The fare is stan­dard for New Zealand Chi­nese res­tau­rants. There were rice and noo­dle dishes, sal­ads, vege­tar­ian and seafood op­tions.

We shared black bean beef with veg­etable, sa­tay chicken and a com­bi­na­tion fried rice. The por­tions were gen­er­ous and we couldn’t fin­ish them. The meal, in­clud­ing wine, cost $138.

Tu had not com­pleted his wine list (he wants to source lo­cal wines), so just two wines were avail­able: a Trin­ity Hill Mer­lot and a Withers Hill Sau­vi­gnon Blanc.

Other bev­er­ages were avail­able at the bar.

The food tem­per­a­ture would have been warmer but we were sat­is­fied with quan­tity and qual­ity.
