I came to the grasshopper in the hopes that I could find a decent Chinese smorgasbord. Regrettably this place let me down, all greasy, bland, and cheap.

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!...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.

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!
