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!
