Great reasonably priced meals. Went there for lunch. Service was great and food delicious and tasty. The char kway teow is my favourite. Just like the local street food in Malaysia. Great value.

Best cheap food I ever tasted here in New Zealand so far. Just service isn't quite friendly. Would recommend.

We are from Singapore and this place offer the closest taste we can get to our kind of food. Tasty, authentic. The lady at the cashier is kind. Definitely will come back again!

From being one of our favourite places to visit for authentic Asian dishes, our last two visits have left us extremely disappointed. On the first occasion we noticed that the meals we were served lacked the usual intense flavours we have enjoyed here for years...More

We had the Nasi goreng, mapo tofu and char kuey teow, all three dishes were lacking seasoning. The portion sizes were good and prices cheap. Service was prompt.

Although very reasonable price wise we found the dishes were all lacking flavour. The Malay curry was bland as was the noodle dish. Could be so much nicer with a little bit of seasoning.

Just had dinner at Wok On In on Kendall Ave, we had Chicken & Veges with Satay sauce & Sweet n Sour Pork. The decors simple but the foods very tasty, we’ll definitely be going again.

A great place and probably undiscovered by many. Food is excellent value for money with many dishes around $10.00 and soups at $4.50. For $33.00 had a bit of a binge on the menu two of us ate very well. A lot to choose from...More
