Not nice compared to others I've visited. Ordered honey chichen on fried rice. They give you half a dozen chicken bits no more. Rice was not fresh. My local one in whangarei had the whole top container full of chicken.

There were two guys working when we went into the store. The one that served us was talking on his phone with an ear piece while taking our order. We then saw him wipe his nose with his hand and then put his hand into the prawn cracker tub as he was making up bags of them. We then watched... More

Despite the lack of inexpensive restaurants in Queenstown, we had a tasty, cheap lunch at the Noodle Kitchen. Very few (small) tables with plastic stools but their dishes are freshly prepared. Definitely a place to go for some fast food, especially on a budget.

We got take-aways for lunch. Pretty cheap lunch specials and decent food. The beef was fairly high quality (not gristly).

We found food quality is really good and pricing is reasonable. There was delay in delivering the food and food was cold by the time we receive it.

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.
