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.
