Dominion Road has become Auckland’s default Chinatown with a multitude of Chinese restaurants and businesses in the city fringe suburb (about a ten minute taxi ride from downtown Auckland CBD).
New Flavour Restaurant has undergone a revamp, with a spacious minimalist black and white interior décor, polished wooden flooring and contemporary dark wooden tables and chairs.
But hey – we’re here for the food – dumplings in particular. Famous for its traditional Lao Bian dumplings made fresh each day, New Flavour also has a huge menu including noodles, soup and many Chinese rice, meat and veg dishes.
Three of us opted to share a plate of twenty pork and fennel dumplings (10 fried and 10 steamed) plus stir-fried bok choy and fried chicken with lemon sauce. Service was swift, friendly and efficient. The food arrived quickly and was fresh and flavoursome.

The pork mince dumplings were a revelation, light and mouth-wateringly herbaceous with just the right amount of fennel. Fresh al dente bok choy and tender lemony crisp fried chicken completed the meal.
Great value at $43 all up for three. I’ll definitely be back!
