Heard a lot about KC so I dropped in for a quick bite. The menu has 160 items, that is simply mind blowing. Ordering was easy by the counter and plenty of seats inside. Not the flashest place but then again good food comes first not ambience. Ordered a Kway Teow and it underwhelmed. Has good wok her but it was too salty and the rice noodle itself was a thicker kind. Lots of meat though. It wasn’t bad but just expected more. Will come back again to try the duck related meals which seems to be the highlights.
Excellent as always.
I and my husband have tried so many restaurants but we always come back to this humble cafe.
The food and serving is delicious and just right.
The young man gladly gave us some chilli oil and soy sauce which complemented my brisket. I appreciated this so much!!
My only suggestion is that they get a bigger restaurant. You have lots of loyal regulars KC Cafe! You can do it!!
Thanks! We always enjoy your food 💖.
My partner and I have been wanting to visit KC cafe ever since seeing their sign that says ‘Best Roast Duck in Town.’ We finally visited today; I ordered the mapo tofu and my partner ordered the plum sauce duck with pickle. Both were amazing! The roast duck was well cooked and I loved the char on the skin. The duck sauce was so good that we ended up taking the leftovers home to pair with rice. The mapo tofu was also amazing! The sauce and pork were savory and paired well with the soft tofu. Each dish was about $20. I have have no complaints about the service and restaurant atmosphere. Both were fairly average. I highly recommend giving KC Cafe a try.
We didn’t realise this place was such a humble, long-standing institution but totally get why now.
The wonton soup was incredible - rich umami broth with scallions and fried shallots, with beautiful, gigantic prawn wontons.
We got some fried squid to takeaway which was also amazing - and such a large portion! We’ll definitely be back.
BEST roast duck in New Zealand!! The meat was so aromatic and tender, crispy skin, with some pickled vegetables to bring out some freshness. Huge wontons, the soup could’ve been more flavourful. We went back twice for the roast duck, absolutely delicious.
