Absolute best food in Dunedin!

I am down for work to Dunedin about once per quarter and always have dinner here most nights. They have a huge menu with a range of dishes from Taiwan as well as other places in Asia.

The food is fantastic! Tasty and also very affordable. Try the soft bone chicken, the steamed pork belly with mustard pickled vegetables on rice and the simmering beef noodle soup.

If they had an Auckland branch I don’t think I’d ever cook again!!

The staff are very friendly and always attending to anything you need. The food is great with a whole lot of variety to choose from. The prices are also affordable if you are on a tight budget but they also have lobsters etc. I love eating here I eat here all the time and love taking friends and guests ere all the time. Highly recommend .

I am rarely compelled to rate restaurants and normally it’s to have a whinge, however while down in Dunedin for the ABs test 4 of us had a fantastic dining experience at Chopsticks 101! We’d all highly recommend this for anyone looking for authentic Asian food, they were even happy to deviate from the menu and nailed the ‘special orders’ (how often does that happen). The hostess was fantastic; not only was her English superb but she was very friendly and attentive to all patrons. Top that all off with the fact that you can BYO (they even chilled my wife’s white wine) and very, very reasonably priced.

Whenever I’m craving for some authentic Chinese food, I make my way to Chop Sticks 101.

The people are always super friendly there, and food arrives relatively quickly.

Everything I’ve tried has been delicious and reminds me of home.

I would recommend the beef noodle soup.

Been there a few times when I was traveling down to Dunedin for courses. Love the Taiwanese food here, especially roast chicken and also pickled veges. Very reasonable price and good value. Free soup when you dine in. Even though my Taiwanese friend found certain dishes abit disappointing, for my tastebud, I still love them! Definitely back for more! So many dishes on the menus to try!

Food wise, I have to say it’s pretty average. However Chopsticks remain popular, always bustling with customers as they provide excellent customer service. I have been to many eateries, from very casual to the finest places, and I am impressed with my recent visit at Chopsticks.
My story: I was a little wary in ordering a particular dish as a friend had warned me that it tasted very bland when he tried it last. I was still keen to try the dish and raised my concern to the staff at the counter. She suggested that I could add salt and pepper available at the self serve cabinet rather than tell the chef to cook it differently (which I agreed to, as I thought it may just have been my friend’s heavier tasting palate). It was a busy night with 20-30 minutes wait (which she warned me about at the counter), yet she remembered my concern and came over to my table with salt and pepper. I also noticed that she shortly left the restaurant, presumably finished her work shift – a sign of a well trained staff. This restaurant is being managed extremely well unlike most other Asian restaurants in Dunedin

Chopsticks 101 really stands out for its service. All the staff are very friendly, especially the owner’s daughter, and the chefs are very fast. While the meals aren’t particularly complicated, they’re usually very tasty and decent value. I also can’t resist the bubble tea every time!

Awesome value for money and you get lots in your dish.

I would recommend the hot pot dishes they have. Two people can finish it and still be pretty full. The rest is bla bla bla because I need 200 words.

Food comes out pretty fast. Food is authentic and very tasty. Prices are very reasonable – value for money.

I am a Chinese and only recommend restaurants where I think it is worth recommending.

Went there especially to have the tofu jelly. But was informed it was not made during winter (was very disappointed) however items and was not disappointed.

Definitely recommend this place if you do not want to spend a lot of money.

Staff were very friendly and informed us who and where to order our food.

Cheery faces on all the staff, and the food is amazing! the sweet chicken and corn soup, stewed pork and not to mention the hotpots are all delicious. Oh, and the bubble tea is also great! Might be a little overpriced for a casual eatery, though.

I regularly grab something to eat here, its pretty cheap but authentic. The beauty of this menu is the variety and its nice to get a few different dishes.My fav is the pork ribs with orange peel.I have also got one of their whole ducks before and taken it home to have with pancakes yum yum.The decore is simple but as I said authentic.

This place is not good. In terms of what decent cheap asian food you can get in Dunedin this place is probably the worst. My soup was like water with cabbage and the the guy got our order wrong and charged us wrong. I havent tried all the menu but both dishes we ordered were tasteless.

The sweetest people run this place, and the food is good and well-priced. Cafeteria atmosphere, but close to school and pleasant enough.
