Visited on a Friday afternoon. Selection of cooked chinese food in the buffet that you can help yourself to. I just grabbed the $6 pack - they have lots of pack options including Chinese food. As always, I requested under-done fish and it was perfect! They've always served great takeaway food here. I've been coming here for over 10 years... More

All you can eat - time it right and they have a wonderful fresh selection of fresh food. Pretty standard Chinese fare, and not so good for the gluten-free amongst us, but lots of fun otherwise. BYO.

Visited here on the strength of the other five very glowing reviews. Not sure if I was in the same place they all visited!! Having said that, there was nothing wrong with the food. Great range and the portion size of our Pork egg fu Yong and BBQ Pork with seasonal vegetables was huge! - value for your money. over... More

The kids had friends for a sleepover so we got fish and chips and they were beautiful. The chips were light and crispy, the kiddie fish was fresh and the crispy chicken was loved by everyone.

Remember coming here as a kid and visited with my own family. Food was very nice, great selection on the smorgasbord. Fast, friendly and obviously popular with the locals. Good value packs available. Recommended

The food at grasshopper is superb, best chinese takeaway in Taupo. We had the smorgasbord in the small restaurant attached it was like an ice box. They turned the heater on when we arrived. The room was not very inviting. Too Cold!
