Jade Dragon Chinese Restaurant – Sky City Auckland

My partner and I came here on Guy Fawkes Day 2014 (Nov. 5) to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant’s interior decor was nice, perfect for a good dining experience in a Chinese restaurant. The table setting with the gold-rimmed plates look awesome and appropriate too.

We had Salmon Sashimi for entrees, Boneless Pork Ribs with Honey Glaze, rice, and pineapple juice for me, while for him it was Braised Tofu with Vegetables and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc wine. We also had jasmine tea, as suggested by the waitress, although it was an additional $2. Although the sashimi was still good to eat, looks like the salmon has been stored for many days and therefore not fresh. Presentation on the plate was really bad, unlike in Japanese restaurants. They could have just erased it off the menu since it’s a Chinese restaurant and so should offer only Chinese dishes.

Both the pork ribs and tofu meals were nice though. My partner liked the pork ribs better. Although tofu pieces were big, when you bite into it, it seems like it was just an inflated sort of tofu, not the firm ones you see at supermarkets.

We used an Entertainment Book Gold Card to get 25% off the meal. Originally cost $85 for both of us, now reduced to about $65. Not bad, although I may not want to come back here.

  1. Gosh, when I first saw that plate of salmon, I thought to myself “I could present sashimi better than that”.

    I agree with you, they should just remove sashimi from the menu completely. It doesn’t match the setting or restaurant at all. Going by your review, I think there are much better places to eat Chinese food in Auckland.
