Chinoiserie had a gorgeous, relaxed atmosphere and cheap, fun food with punchy, memorable flavours. There are a range of milk 'buns' - styled more like tacos - but with that classic, sweet milk bun taste. I had the lamb curry milk bun, which was tender and well spiced. I would have liked more chilli in there but that's always a personal taste thing. There are a handful of cute and refreshing cocktails on the menu. I'll be back to try the taiwanese donuts.

Fast and cheap, crowded and cool, sassy suburban eateries are popping up everywhere. Why stay at home when you have a place like this around the corner. Mt Albert's Chinoiserie is one such place. The cafe L'Oeuf (right next door) is owned by the same people.

The Matré D was good at keeping the place running smoothly and I was impressed the lady at the till new all our groups 10 names whenever we ordered anything to make paying the bill easier for all. There’s no table service but Chinoiserie sends the food as is ready so the service is quick.

The food on offer is simple; a mix of Chinese and Taiwanese-inspired street snacks. The short menu lists a selection of steamed milk buns - with fillings of Szechuan chicken, five-spice pork belly, tofu or squid. The lamb curry special was the best. Then there's a section for sides - slaw, fries, edamame and more - and two sweet choices to finish. The fries with a wasabi mayo was great.

We finished the meal by sharing Taiwanese doughnuts and a bowl of black sticky rice which I loved much more than the heavy doughnuts and more than I thought I would with its subtle flavours and slather of salted coconut cream and pretty floral decoration.
I'll be back. Chinoiserie oozes with too much fun to stay away.
