Good setup for speedy service. You can see the staff putting what you order into bowls and then the chefs individually stirfry your order.We had a rice dish, BBQ pork and vegetables. The food was fresh and tasty. At $16 each it seemed a bit dearer than Australia but perhaps thats the norm in Taupo

All 4 of us left our food practically untouched. My daughter ordered the meat dumpling soup noodles and the skin of the dumpling were uncooked and the soup taste like they just cook the dumpling in the soup base which is a no no. My son had the butter chicken rice and the chicken was so chewy he asked, is... More

I ate here on Monday and most of the restaurants were closed. It's inexpensive and servings are generous. They have a good choice of veg dishes and friendly staff.Food is pretty tasteless, but as it has vegan dishes I give 3 stars

Ordered take-away, chicken satay with noodles. None of the ingredients or sauce was very tasty. I recommend a pass.

Ordered 6 different meals from this Noddle CanTeen on a busy Friday night. Only 1 of the 6 was any good, the rest were bland. Very disappointed as we order Noddle CanTeen a lot in Wellington and it is great. My dish only had two types of veges and very little tofu. I had to add soy sauce at home.

Have been here numerous times over the years and never been disappointed, it's no frills but a good feed. Garlic Prawn is my favourite dish, always a good number of large juicy prawns. Service is always fast even when they are busy.

I can honestly say these were the worst noodles I have ever had. The only thing they had going for them was the decent portion size, but that is a bit pointless when the noodles don't actually have any flavour. I ordered the teriyaki chicken noodles...I know teriyaki, it is one of my favourite dishes...the dish I received was not... More
