I’ve never written a bad restaurant review in my life, but feel the need to in this instance. Service was good. Ambience was good. Food was utterly foul. My partner and child are Chinese, so we’ve eaten our fair share of Chinese food. We are back home and feeling like we’ve tried to drink the ocean. Every dish tastes like it was steeped in a salt bath. No Chinese flavour whatsoever. The prices are very high for Chinese cuisine. Go elsewhere.

my husband and I always eat at this restaurant all the time. We love the food as it always tastes very fresh. Good variety of different dishes.
Staff are always friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great reasonably priced Chinese meal.

My favourite local restaurant. Lovely, helpful staff. Great service. And the food is consistently of the best quality

Good menu, plenty of choices, great variety. It’s got my vote.

We have just been reading the reviews and are quite surprised at the number of adverse reviews. We have dined at this restaurant many times with friends, both in the old and new building, and have always had good food, adequate helpings and good service. Decor is great pleasant to eat in and value for money.

I really liked this restaurant. Tasty food which is reasonaly priced. Good service too. I also love the modern decor of the restaurant. It gives the place a clean and fresh feel to it a good size too would be excellent for large groups.

This was a bit of a find for us. We’ve had hit and miss Chinese meals for a while – you find somewhere and think wow – this is fantastic – you go back, it’s a little less up to your expectation – and downhill from there. We’ve had a mixture of both eat in and take-away over the last three months and each time we’ve really enjoyed it.
The food is good. It’s tasty, always hot and good size portions. It’s tasty although perhaps a little limited in menu choice but all round good.
The atmosphere of the place is a little hard to fathom. It’s a large – large area with chunky tables and chairs yet we still feel as if its private enough to appreciate your own space. Strange!
We’ve had little to complain about in terms of service. Staff always appear friendly (although, when I think about it the lady who organised our doggy bags last night was a tad grumpy!).
Overall a good solid all rounder. I see from other reviews the experience hasn’t been all great. I will keep my fingers crossed that I’m not eventually one of the unfortunate.

Ordered a vege fried rice that came full of pork. Asked the waitress to maybe discount the order and we will pick out the meat (as one of us is vegetarian) or bring us another one.

Received nothing but attitude and rudeness from the waitress and was basically told too bad. Shocking, unfortunately not the first time the service has been appalling and there is nothing “Amazing” about the food either. You will get the same from any Chinese takeaways in Lower Hutt minus the rude service. Given that we tried to sort something out and gave them a chance this was a pretty poor result. Wont be going back.

Came here for Mothers Day….
It was indeed busy but we were among the first table there no drinks for 15mins. But on a lighter note food was great.
Staff was very attentive after the drink mishap.
Thank you very much.

We dined out this past Saturday night at the Amazing 5, this is the third time, our first experience was great, couldn’t have asked for better food or service, our second time was average, the food was great, although the service left a lot to be desired, i had to make eye contact with staff to be served, when we arrived we mentioned we had movie tickets and had limited time to have our dinner, had to skip dessert as we would have been late for our movie, and our third and last experience, a group of 6 we had to ask for service to get drinks, not once, not twice but 3 times, then when i asked if we could order, i was told NO, the kitchen is busy, can you wait….then we ordered the banquet, the waitress returned 3 times to tell us we needed to drop something off the menu, so the food arrived, very intermittently, the best thing was the chicken and corn soup, the worst being our crispy chicken, that was still bleeding, when i returned it i was asked very rudely, “so what you want” we were all ready to leave and forfeit our dessert, that we waited forever for, ice cream and tinned fruit salad with strawberry topping, when we were settling the bill, i made mention of the sloppy service, and the girl waved her hands as to imply it was because they were busy, sloppy service and food this time round, wont be returning….

We too experienced the same when presenting our 25% discount voucher from the entertainment book after our group of 9 specifically chose this restaurant for lunch to be able to use the voucher. Very disappointed, especially as 5 in our group are regular diners at this restaurant, not any more!

I ate at this restaurant today for lunch as I have the Entertainment Book which means that I get 25% of the total bill (valid for dine-in and takeaway). When I went to pay for the meal I presented the voucher and was told no sorry we don’t accept the voucher at lunchtime. I said it didn’t say so on the voucher. Even though I was in the right the waitress would not discount meal. When I got home on page 2 of the Entertainment Book it states “If the restaurant is running a breakfast, lunch or dinner special, your Card/Voucher is still valid”. This restaurant obviously makes its own rules. As for food – pretty average – I definitely won’t be returning. Crap service, unfriendly staff and not much meat in the dishes.

We have adopted amazing 5 as our weekly luncheon meeting location as we are always able to be sure of good service great lunch options well prepared and prompt and at a price that doesn’t even cover the cost of coffee and a sandwich elsewhere. Great value and a generous portion. We have been every week since January 5th and not one bad day keep up the great service

The Amazing 5 Chinese Restaurant is now completely brand new!!!

It has just been located to a completely brand new pristine location in Lower Hutt’s High Street this week…………just around the corner from their previous location.

Our group of six friends dined there last night. The restaurant was already quite full with other diners when we arrived.
We ordered six different courses. Everything was nice and tasty but the stand-out dish had to be the Steamed Blue Cod in Soya Sauce dish. It was really quite large in size and steamed to perfection. It was so delicious!! Service was really attentive…….we were well looked after all evening.

My only real criticism of the restaurant related to the sizes of their ridiculously small rice bowls…… they were only 1/3 of the normal restaurant sized ones!! And they were so hard to hold!!! I would much prefer the normal sized bowls.

The design of the new restaurant is really first class with some really nice fittings, new tables and chairs, attractive bar area, and some nice pretty photos of Hong Kong adorning the walls.

Congratulations to the proud new owners. I’m sure they will really do well here!!!
