Our order was mixed up (accent differs), and only reluctantly redone. That said, the finished product was filling and satisfying. Thank you. A good range of dishes reasonably priced. Mainly caters for takeaway market but there are some tables and chairs, which we used. Lots of customers which speaks for itself.

I had the sweet box with pineapple, the noodles were tasty but the beef and the chicken tasted weird, the pineapple was tasteless (not exaggerating, was like water) I couldn't eat it and 13 nzd for just some noodles is quiet expensive. My plate had at least 3 pieces of pineapple and 1 broccoli. Service is nothing special, just recommended... More

I've been here just for a quick lunch and I found the place really overpriced for the food that they offer. The Meat in every dish is really bad taste and the bowls itself are not really good looking. If it was for like 5 dollars would be "okay" but not for the prices they have. Definitely not going again.

We all wanted Fergburger but my boy wanted "Chinese food". While waiting for our order, we walked down the street and found...Malaysian food. I hoped it would be close enough to suit his tastes. He picked the honey chicken with fried rice. $12.50 seemed a bit steep for a bowl, but all the ingredients were laid out and appeared fresh.... More

This simple place offers many noodle dishes to eat there and take away. It was the only place around opened before 11:30 which served me a quick lunch. I liked prawn noodles, they were pretty tasty. Good place.

Yang Zhou Fried Rice ($13.50 NZD); and one bag of Prawn Crackers ($3 NZD). While eating, we did notice many backpackers stop in and order to go. Not... More

Stumbled upon this small eat-in / take-away fast food unit whilst strolling around Queenstown, great choice of noodle & rice based dishes, at very reasonable prices, very generous portions served in a large plastic bowl, the food was cooked to order, served to us piping hot within a matter of minutes, we had 'honey chicken noodles' & 'hot box noodles'...

The food is great but the portions are on the smaller side, especially compared to other Noodle Canteen's around NZ. Also, they don't but should do some kind of frequent customer loyalty card like many restaurants have

I wasn't expecting so much for I paid for, I couldn't even finish the portion thet gave so I saved it for later. The service was good, I got my meal fairly quickly. It's not the best I've had but it still good enough as a meal.
