Cuisine: Chinese
Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30

For traditional Chinese home cooking, look no further than Sun Wah Chinese.

Its interior is clean and crisp. White tablecloths dominate the floor, making eating sweet and sour anything a perilous task. Predominantly decorated with whites and reds, it oozes class and the quaint Chinese wallpaper is a beautiful backdrop.

When it comes to food, the choice is endless. From BBQ style, stir-fried, casserole and Szechuan style dishes, it all comes down to how you’re feeling. Will you go for a classic stir-fried number or something more adventurous like a whole blue cod or pickled cabbage beef? Or why not get a plate of delicious dumplings in!

Add some drama to proceedings with their (literally) sizzling mains. Choose your sauce, like their refreshing ginger and spring onion, then add your meat. Guaranteed there will be lots of turning heads throughout the restaurant! Wash it all down with a boozy accompaniment, with wines, beers and spirits at your beck and call.

We really enjoyed our meal for 4. We had four entrees and mains which were all excelled including the peking duck. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great food! The service was a little slow and it did take a while for the food to come out. Once the food started coming out it didn't come out all at once and the appetisers ended up being served halfway through our mains which was a little bit strange. But overall it was worth the wait and even better they had some great toys there for our children to play with which kept them occupied nicely while we were waiting. I would happily go back there and I might even have to try out the buffet next time as that looked delicious!

we love Chinese food and sun wah is our go to restaurant. Apart from the minced pork (quite salty for our taste) everything else was nice.

The 4 of us were made very welcome, and all through the service was quick and pleasant. Of our 4 mains, 3 were top notch but the satay chicken was bland and lacking satay flavour. Only when we had finished eating did one of us spot the table with spices and sauces, a pity this had not been pointed out to us. We left happy and will be back.

The food was soooo good, we got to try 6 dishes all of which we enjoyed, though some more than others lol - service was good, bit of a language barrier when asking about dishes but we got there in the end - highly recommended A+

I haven't had Chinese food this nice in so long! The plates were generous. Had all our food within ten minutes and the waitresses were lovely. I'd recommend the salt and pepper squid, I nearly ordered more. The sweet and sour pork was amazing, zero complaints. Will be back for sure!

We have dined here for lunch on a few occasions and was always satisfied with our food. I ordered the satay chicken which unfortunately was very bland and lacked the satay taste I was hoping for. My partner had his favourite kungpow chicken and as usual he loved it. We also ordered the salt and pepper squid which was very flavourful and made up for the bland satay. We will definitely go back again :)

Had an enjoyable dinner at Sun Wah restaurant. It was our first time there and we were slightly aprehensive as to what to order. In our experience most Chinese restaurants are too heavy handed with the MSG and oil they use in their cooking. Our server was honest about the minimal MSG they use in their cooking. We ordered the pork and prawn dim sum and garlic pork ribs for starters and had the Sun Wah fried rice and the eggplant with minced pork as mains. The food arrived piping hot and tasty! It was a little on the greasy side but these are Szechuan style cooking so it's understandable. Will most likely order a soup or steamed dishes with just one fried dish next time. All in all a pleasant dining experience :)

This is the best Chinese meal I've had in over a decade since being in NZ. I hadn't realised Sun Wah had new management, they would benefit from advertising in the local free papers. The food was amazing, the restaurant has been renovated, the staff were lovely, polite and attentive. There are now many good restaurants in Whangarei and Sun Wah has got to be in the top 5!
