Haven't been here in many years (only due to living on opposite side of town). I went last night on a whim with a couple of friends. I always remember it being some of the best Chinese in Christchurch and surrounding areas and we weren't disappointed. It was always a very busy place and last night was no different but... More

Had been here before with a friend, and had to return with my partner this time for the delicious beef! Fairly priced, friendly ladies behind the counter and yummy food.

Enjoyed a busy Friday night dinner - was busy but the food arrived quickly and was tasty and reasonably priced. BYO and well stocked supermarket nearby. Takeaways seemed popular as well. Staff helpful and friendly. Would return again.

Staff are pleasant and super efficient at processing orders. Usually takes no more than 10 to15 minutes to prepare takeaway for collection. We enjoy a variety of dishes especially the prawn starter. Combination egg omelette is tasty too. Good value middle of the road, reliable Chinese food.

Had a fabulous night at Chopsticks 2 days ago, catching up with old friends and enjoying the amazing food they make ... In fact I enjoyed it so much, that I took my Mum back there tonight and it was just as good on this second visit. I totally recommend Chopsticks Restaurant for a delicious affordable meal out.

As the title suggests, easy and cheap food. Typical Asian restaurant service (bad with drinks, no conversation, rushed) but the food was edible. Very oily however. Please tone down your oil usage! Would return.

If anything special happens in our extended family then the go-to place to celebrate is Chopsticks - any birthday, anniversary (or if we are in the vicinity then that is reason enough to go here too!!). As a teen I lived in Malaysia so Chopsticks serves the food of my second home. The Asian delights section on the back page... More
