Over the years I have realized that sharing my love for food is most important to me and so I want to create a personal dining experience by offering delicious food in the warmth of my home.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was so lucky to be one of the12 diners at the first "Social Table" in Pukekohe. Archana had created an 8 course menu that was unbelievably good. We sat in the beautiful garden under a huge tree and were served a proper fine dining experience. My favorites were the toasted figleave icecream and the quailegg in baked potatoskin and ghee hollandaise, so clever! Also the feijoadoughnuts with creme anglaise- yuuum!!! We had brought our own wine, Archana provided a wine pairing proposal on request. The other diners were super nice to chat to; we had a great night! We even received a little gift from Archana, homemade preserved lemon and white chocolate fudge and a small tasting bottle of her homemade limoncello- sooooo delicious!!! Archana will do a social table event once a month, don't miss out. Sitting in that garden with the lights in the tree, eating delicious food and having a great conversation was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had! Thanks to Archana!
