What a wee treat this place was other than staff who seemed a little pre occupied with there social life. The food was excellent with many options and a well thought through menu. Certainly would dine again when in Queenstown See less

Having good customer service is their only saving grace earning them the three stars. Otherwise, food wise, it would be a no for me. On the pricier side for Malaysian food yet serving was of a smaller portion compared to other Malaysian eateries. It looked like the team didn't know what condiments to put on the dishes too as I watched the wait staff look at the list of ingredients needed per dish. It also took a lot longer than expected to get the meals even though they only had 1 other table to serve. I had the vegetarian laksa which was very, very bland. The laksa was the right texture, but it was so bland that I can't emphasize this enough. Egg noodles, 3 very small pieces of fried eggplant, half an egg, a handful of bean sprouts and some mint came up to $16 which astounds me. My daughter had the beef bowl which was rice, beef and what looked like chilli sauce but it turned out to be non spicy, sweet and coconutty. My husband ordered the nasi lemak with beef rendang. The fried egg, fried anchovies and fried peanuts saved the dish. Otherwise the rice came with the same sauce and beef that my daughter had. The sauce that I assume should be sambal was just sweet chilli sauce, I would hardly call it sambal. The beef rendang was the kid version with no spice chilli kick and was bland too. Honestly, the worse laksa and nasi lemak I have had in NZ. Looking at the reviews, a lot have mentioned the food being bland. Perhaps it is time to review your recipes and portions in light of feedback given? Thanks. See less

Ok salad that was a little underwhelming. Lacked a little flavour but good value. Great location and friendly enough staff. See less

We had lunch here, the laksa is a bit plain for my taste but still very good, love the nasi lemak, the roti is good too. We were not very hungry and looking for something light for lunch, turned out it's the perfect place for that. Service is great, will recommend :) See less

We visited Hawker & Roll during the school holidays, which might have caused the long wait we were warned for. The food was worth the wait though, especially the laksa! The portions were quite small in our opinion, we should have ordered some extra side dishes See less

Almost felt ignored by the people working there. Cups were not washed well at all, could easily feel the stains and when you pour water you can see bits of stuff in the water. Vegetarian laksa needed more flavour Pork Hawker roll was decent but expensive for the portion size Vegetarian dumplings taste exactly like KB's vegetarian dumplings. Wouldn't go there again.

I like the dishes. The Malay cuisine Nasi Lemak is amazing, and the rice with beef for kid is another surprise. Price is friendly See less

I ordered a Laksa from this place and it didn’t taste as good as a laksa should taste. Not recommended. Plus, It did not come with eggs and I had to ask for them. To finish, the bowl, where they serve it, is very small. For $20. See less

Totally FAILED nasi lemak. Over soft rice (too much water?) Tasteless beef rendang(i can only said this if some water boiled beef with some chilli?) Over fried anchovies? (Very hard to bite) The one star give to the cucumber and fried egg. NO next visit. Thanks. See less

Pleasantly surprised by this place. Everything was really tasty, even the house made drinks. Not very cheap for Asian street food lunch, but delicious See less

great for a tasty but cheaper feed in queenstown. they have a combo where you can get a roti roll with dumplings, wontons or spring rolls. there's good vegetarian options too. I enjoyed the eggplant roll and vegetarian dumplings. See less

Everything on the menu is to die for. I was actually a fan of the gluten free option which was simply a lettuce leaf. Doesn’t get any more gluten free than that. The tracks were great and the staff were all friendly. Last bit not least, they have a very comfortable bathroom out back. See less

The taste of the food is quite authentic to Malaysian hawker food.. however I was a little disappointed with the portions served for the price. It's a little dear. I ordered the Laksa and it looked barely like anything in the pictures (2tiny pieces of veggies and 2mouthful of noodles). The taste was good, I wish the portion was larger for the price ($20). The dumplings were amazing though. See less

Celeb chef Josh Emmett's chain of Malaysian "Hawker" joints are popping up up and down the country, and this one is fast, cheerful and just as excellent as it's more polished and larger Auckland cousin. In fact, this one is friendlier and cosier, which gives a more authentic "street" feel. The food is excellent, and yes, it's not as cheap as you would like for hawker food. But the quality is unrivalled, and the flavours consistently pop. Great when you're on the way out into town, or after a few drinks, or *with* a few drinks, or on the way back from a few drinks... My personal favs? The vietnamese coffee - hot or iced, the chicken laksa roll, the salads, and the nasi lemak. Keep away from the dumplings... they're a bit flat compared to the rest of the food.
