Food was great. Service was ok, ambience could be better. We had the Claypole eggplant, roast pork, roast duck, choy sum with garlic, char koay teow. Everything was yum. We'll be back but probably for takeaway. Seating area wasn't so convenient for family dining.

After living on tory street for several months and only having KC Cafe whilst rather fueled up on Vodka Sodas and Pinot Noir at 2am, myself and the flat mates decided to shoot down and get some takeaways to feed the gang coming over for poker night. Albeit a rather long wait, 75minutes to be accurate we were soon on... More

Ordered a sweet and sour chicken takeaway and I felt sick after eating less than half of it... had to throw it out. The battered chicken was over cooked so bad it was dry and chewy. There was so much oil in sauce as well (I think that is what is making me feel unwell at the moment. Took a... More

I've been there sooooo many times. Food is awesome, you're never waiting that long. Opening so late (til 3am) on the weekends. Prices are really low compare to what you're eating. That's real food. Only bad point : the cashier looks like she's gonna killl herself anytime... Maybe she doesn't want to do this job anymore and so my advice... More

I met a Swiss backpacker who was given a rave about this place for incredible budget dining at late hours. Late hours they do but invisible seemed to be the staff so ding needed to occur elsewhere.

Wellington is full of many little Asian takeaway or dine ins that are cheap and fast. KC cafe is the king of them all! My favourites are Orange Beef, Nasi Goreng, Wonton Noodle Soup is amazing!

With very good food quality and reasonable price, although the room decoration is simple, the taste is awesome! Opens until 12:30am everyday, it's a good place to have night dishes as well!

My fav here is the roast meats. The 2 roast meats will come on rice and a side of cabbage. Duck and pork are both to perfection. The soy chicken also good. Good duck is hard to find so have it at this cheap cheerful. Very busy place.

The so so:... More
