After going through numerous changes in management, it seems to have improved. Their customer base ranges from international students, large Polynesian families and the curious Caucasian. If you want cheap Chinese food with generous portions and decent quality then Momotea is the place to go. Out of the places to eat in Mt Albert Auckland for Chinese meals– Momotea is one of the best.
The Unhinged summary
That Chinese place called Momotea with a Monkey logo in Mt Albert. They provide cheap, large volume Cantonese styled Chinese dishes with milk bubble tea to serve. They stay pretty late to feed people before and after hangovers.
Better than average for a typical Chinese joint. They had greeted us and were seated promptly. I have to say though the food came fast – really fast. Less than 10 minutes! The Chefs must be amazing at what they do! There are free takeaway containers for you to grab as you will inevitably have leftovers if you ordered too much (this is an easy thing to do!)
It so cheap – the dishes range from $7 to $13 and there’s a large variety. You get quantity for small amount of coin.
Mostly Cantonese styled food. It had free complimentary soup (self-serve) and the portions are HUGE. Ordered the fried squid, hot and spicy pork and Wan Tan hor (Flat rice noodles with meat and gravy). Was surprisingly good and the right amount of seasoning and my throat didn’t have scratchy MSG mouth syndrome!
Their menu could use an update – The Hot and Spicy Pork that I ordered had no mention of vegetables. Not complaining but they should state that it is included and increase the price to $15.
