Christchurch Chinese

OK. So I was introduced to 'proper' Chinese eating the other night with a friend and his gorgeous Chinese wife.  She ordered conservatively for us at Daphnes (apparently the best for dinner).   We picked from each dish communally with chop sticks, I handled the 'hot dish' and it was sloshed down with copious amounts of green tea.  The whole deep fried Akaroa Cod was fresh and amazing.  Just thought I'd document it as I have never eaten Chinese with hosts who 'know what they are doing'.  Shame when there seem to be so many good Chinese restaurants in Christchurch's suburbs. Apparently North and South is best for Yum Cha, Daphnes for dinner.  Get amongst.
