Good takeaway, quite expensive for Tongan meals though, not bad but stick with the chicken or fish dishes as the other meat is imported

It's really great to have Chinese food in this town because the local people have no idea about food or hygiene with food. Without the chinese food you would go hungry unless you like eating greasy chicken with some dry tapioca crap. Tongan food is probably the worst in the world.

A good recommendation around the corner from Malau. Cheap & tasty. Great wontons - could see the garlic chives chopped in but sizzling lobster & sizzling fish had too much blackbean style sauce which spoiled any flavour. Much is closed on Sundays but these guys are open. Quite busy, fast service, clean. Ate there twice as was convenient.
