The chips are absolutely the best in town. The service is friendly and the Chinese food generous and tasty.

“Takeaways at their best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

A variety of takeaways available but the Chinese and burgers are really nice if you don't like the "fried" options. Prepared as you wait and really good prices. Best takeaways in Te Anau.

“Best fish n chips in NZ!”

Must try the fresh battered blue cod takeaway. Best in New Zealand! Really unexpected and only NZD 5.50!

“Good Chinese Takeaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

What Te Anau Dairy lacks in atmosphere it more than makes up in taste! This is a takeaway restaurant inside what would be called a "convenience store" in the US. The menu is remarkably generous in its variations on the theme of Chinese quisine. Each meal is individually prepared, not just ladled out of a pre-prepared pot. The food is fresh and very tasty.

The servings are generous - Jennifer and I - not very robust eaters, true - should have chosen a single entree and shared it. But, had we done so, we would have missed out on the other dish!

If you're not up for yet another sit down dinner out, give Te Anau Dairy a try. Really good food and, as a bonus, very reasonably priced.
