"We serve the best fresh handmade noodles in New Zealand!"

May Wang, Co-Owner

The Verdict

If you lurrrve noodles and scrumptious Chinese eats, make a beeline for Shaolin Kung Fu Noodle in Albany. The bustling restaurant has earned a reputation for serving the best damn noodles in Auckland!

The chefs make the noodles by chopping, whacking and slapping the ingredients into shape—hence the name Shaolin Kung Fu Noodle. Shaolin is also where the art of kung fu originates and where owners Mike Xu and May Wang come from.

You’re spoilt for choice with 200 dishes (!) to choose from. The extensive menu is divided into sections with chicken, lamb, beef, seafood and vegetarian dishes all making appearances.

First things first, no visit is complete without slurping your way through their famous noodles. The curry-esque Meilan beef noodles are irresistible, while the delightfully chewy fried lamb noodles are an Urban List fave. Kung Fu Noodle’s signature dish of hot and spicy beef noodles is not to be missed. The sliced noodles are paired with beef, bok choy, sesame seeds and a whooole lot of spice.

If you visit with your squad, the aptly named sensational spicy chicken (it’s seriously sensational) will leave you full and content. The massive platter is loaded with tender chicken, capsicum, onion and potato. Mix through the side of hand-pulled noodles and you’ve got a feast big enough to feed an army (or two).

And—should you want to mix up your dish—the friendly team are more than happy to alter things to suit your taste buds. Less spice? No problem. More spice? They’ve got you covered. What’s more, you can pick and choose the type of noodles in your dish. Choose between thin, sliced, fried or pulled noodles—we can’t go past the latter.

There’s so much more than noodles, though! Kung Fu dishes up all your Chinese faves in a glorious fashion. Think flavoursome chicken wonton soup, cumin-spiced lamb burgers, steamed pork buns, spicy cucumber salad and a not-to-be-missed flaky pull-apart spring onion pancake.

But, let’s be honest, no Chinese feast is complete without dumplings. At Kung Fu Noodle you can have ‘em just the way you like ‘em—steamed, poached, pan fried or in sour soup. Pan fried is our go-to with the dumplings arranged to fill a pan before being flipped and served like a dumpling pancake (yes, please!). They’re filled with the likes of lamb and fennel, chicken and corn as well as beef and celery.

What sets Kung Fu Noodle apart is the cartoon-covered tabletops the restaurant is known and loved for. Kids and the young-at-heart will delight over the quirky imagery—and it makes your dining experience oh-so Instagramable.

Visit with your significant other for a cheap and cheerful meal or round up your squad and attempt to eat your way through the menu. And, if Albany isn’t entirely your neck of the woods, fear not—you can get your noodley fix from Shaolin Kung Fu Noodle in Balmoral, Howick and the CBD.
