I’m a big foodie and have eaten at a great many restaurants and takeouts across New Zealand. Forbidden City is a class above and undoubtedly my favourite. I’ve dined at restaurant numerous times and every single time the food is insanely delicious.
The dumplings, dim sum, wontons, fried noodles, sweet and sour fish, salt and pepper squid, braised eggplant - every dish at this restaurant is amazingly tasteful and something I crave daily.
If you’re looking for authentic and absolutely delicious Chinese cuisine - make sure you check this gem out!
Great food with good sized portions. Friendly staff. Based in the Lower Hutt CBD on Queens drive, so parking is good after-hours on the side. Would recommend them if you are looking for some good Chinese food to sit in and eat or takeaways.
Went looking for a hidden gem and found one! Greeeat food (not stingy with portion sizes) and great service. Will definitely be visiting this place more!
Ordered 4 or 5 takeaway dishes from this restaurant recently -they let me know the food might take a few minutes to prepare but despite the fact that they were incredibly busy, it was ready pretty quick. All of the dishes were still piping hot when we got them home and the food was absolutely delicious, best Chinese I have had in ages. Also good value for money. Have already recommended to a few friends and we will definitely be back :)
