Very tasty malaysian food paired with friendly service at Madam Woo in Takapuna. Great Laksa and tasty Ginger Chicken which could be served with more vegies please. Expensive - this why I have rated it average instead of very good.

I have been here for dinner a few times with some family and friends. I must say that the service and the food is quite possibly the best in Takapuna! Every time I find myself here, I always get the hawker rolls! Whether it be...More
