I thought the food was very good and the service was friendly. I had a red seafood curry that was quite tasty. They happily served extra rice at no charge. I thought the prices were slightly expensive but the food was worth it.

Parnell Road has a large variety of restaurants. Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Thai, ice cream, cafes, and, last but no least, a Malaysian restaurant.

We heard of this restaurant from our B&B host, who has this high (if not top) on his list of eateries. So we decided to try it for our first dinner in Auckland.

We were not disappointed. We have had a lot of Malaysian (and Southeast Asian) dishes before, so it was not the novelty factor that "wow'ed" us. I had the best Nasi Goreng (Indonesian fried rice) with prawns at this little shop. My wife also liked her Char Kueh Teow (fried flat rice noodles), even though it was a tiny touch too sweet for her taste, because it was hot and flavorful. We recommended the restaurant to our fellow B&B residents, and they enjoyed their dinner just as much.

The menu was not long and extensive. But Kopio does not need an extensive menu, since their dishes are good. We will certainly go there again next time we are in Auckland.

We found the food and ambience of the restaurant to be very good with excellent and friendly service.
We had the Roti Dip entree with mains of Beef Rendang and Red Curry Seafood. All the food was v authentic and tasty.
Special mention of the music playing which was perfect for casual dining with light vocal jazz in the background selected by the owner. Tasteful

We had to wake up at 4.15 a.m. for an early pickup the following morning, so we decided to have a quick and early, Asian dinner. We ordered Nasi Goreng (fried rice) and Char Kway Teow (fried flat rice noodles) and green vegetables (broccoli, bak choy and spinach). Reasonable size portions and generous amounts of prawns in the fried rice and chicken in the fried noodles. The vegetables had been steamed or blanched and were quite dry and lacked taste. It was very average, ordinary Malaysian food but over priced for such simple dishes.

The menu states that the Beef Rendang has been rated "best in Auckland", I reckon it could be the best in the world. Deliciously tender; beautifully spiced - absolutely devine with an authentic roti and rice.
Front of house service great. All in all, a truly lovely visit. Highly recommend.
