“Good Family Fare”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

If you are looking for authentic chinese experience then Chopsticks isn't for you. If however you want some perfectly acceptable, tasty food, casual atmosphere and BYO at a reasonable price then come on down. Great for those who like their food not too 'foreign'. All the family favorites are here, sweet and sour, fried rice, noodles, wontons, cashew chicken and so. Coconut curry prawns are especially good. Great place for an informal catch up with friends and family that won't break the bank. Take granny and the kids and Enjoy.

“Boring”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This place is as plain as a rice paper. The Chinese offering here is being modified to suit the taste of Kiwis. No authenticity here at all. Situated at the popular suburb of Bryndwr. Seriously, if you opt for authentic Chinese food experience, savour it when you are up in Auckland. That being said, Chopsticks has and is popular with the locals for many years for its unobtrusive service.

“Book First”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Stumbled on this place via Google. We were so lucky to find it. Simply the best food, best service and great prices. We pulled up outside on our motorbike (we were doing a lap of the South Island), and the owner greeted us as he opened the doors for evening dining. Lots of reserved signs on the tables told us this was a very popular restaraunt. We were lucky to get a table, my advice i to book ahead to avoid dissapointment. We definately know where we will be eating next time we are in ChCh. Thank you Chopsticks.

“Cup week value dining”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Really tasty food at a great price, and great service. Best Chinese in Christchurch. Really busy so a booking may be advisable but they will do their best to fit you in.

“A great Chinese Restaurant”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

We visited this restaurant as a family group to celebrate a university graduation for Rachel. There were six people dining and we all had input in choosing the dishes which we ate. We started with delicious Won-tons and had a variety of main dishes including chicken & cashews and pork satays. We took with us a bottle of excellent NZ Lindauer Sauvignon sparkling wine and enjoyed cups of chinese tea. The atmosphere was friendly and the service very attentive, helpful and prompt. We had a great time.
