A little overpriced, nothing special to be honest. Was just desperate for a quick bite and wanted to try somewhere new. Probably won't come back again. Staff were friendly though.

Have been to others around the country. Friendly staff and a very wide range of menu. Fast food which was daughter enjoyed. Not much meat in the wontons. You get what you pay for.

Good selection of noodle options. Food was basic, but hit the mark. Best bet is to study the menu pictures outside before going in.

The noodles were tasteless and overpriced. I had vegetarian noodle soup and my partner had the hot box and had to run to the toilet half an hour after eating. The soup was tasteless with no frills spaghetti noodles. So many nice restaurants to choose from in Queenstown but this one should place should be avoided.

Wow, this place produces food as good as top Asian restaurants. We actually visited 2 days in a row! Next time I'm in Queenstown I'll be back.

Food is relatively cheap for the portion sized and flavour. Counter staff have been miserable and rude everything I've visited. Fills your stomach if you want a quick decent sized lunch for around the 12 dollar range.

Fast service, really flavoursome and really filling. Best of all, didn't break the bank. Took dinner home to the motel, and was still piping hot when I got there. If you like noodles, this is the place to go in Queenstown.

We had the chicken fried rice and the teriyaki chicken noodles, both of which were amazing. Quick service, big serves and well priced.
