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.

Arrived early to get a table, upon arrival told that half the menu wasn’t even available- just pizza, wings and chips which was disappointing. Was given a dirty plate, had to ask for a clean one. Pizzas very average- not much flavour, pizza base was...average too. Service sloppy. Must be better options- may be okay for a drink only.More

Great pizza. Great beer selection. Really good, friendly service. Was a busy Christmas holiday evening, hence the kitchen missed a couple of items from our order. Otherwise, it would have been 5/5.

Had lunch here while in Mangawhai. Delicious pizza and a couple of tap beers. Staff friendly and good choice of food not just pizza. There was around 10 tap beers too. Definitely worth a visit

Pizzeria Wood Street caught our attention in Mangawhai Heads, when we visited, looking for a quick bite. I have gait/walking challenges (stroke); I wear a legbrace. Parked nearby, quirky decor drew us in. Gigantic pizza & salad, airy spacious setting, interior/exterior seating, good atmosphere, beers...were welcome on a hot day. Friendly service, we're glad we stopped - great place.More

We arrived on a Saturday evening around 7pm. There are no table reservations. Although busy, we were quickly seated. Drinks order taken quickly then food order. Menu is varied with something for everyone. Our table chose the bacon cheese burger pizza, Philly cheesesteak sub, Caribbean...salad and poutine as a side. All food was tasty and well cooked. Having been to Canada and tried proper poutine - this version was a poor cousin 😀.More

Well aren't just you a wonderful human. Merry Xmas and happy New year to you too. Thanks for emailing us directly and not going on social media to ruin a person's livelihood......oh wait. Nevermind. Glad to know you won't be back. Have a great year.

Visited over Xmas summer break, every day while we were at the local holiday camp. Great beer, great food (including a vegan option) and very friendly attentive staff. We will be 'regulars' every time we visit Mangawhai Heads.

It’s usually great here but tonight was very disappointing. Waitress was totally offhand, prices have either gone up or we were overcharged and the pizza was a bit soggy and only luke warm. Possibly because the waitress was too busy chatting to bring it to...us and the chef finally brought it to our table - we eventually received our drinks, plates and cutlery!More

We stopped in for lunch after a morning at MAZ. The service was friendly and quick. A wide range of pizza and other options. Some aptly named kids meals. Our 3yo enjoyed “Nothing” fish diners and tato tots. A great selection of craft beer on...tap plus heaters a d blankets to keep the chill away.More

We highly enjoyed our meal here. Great place for a family (we have a 2 year old), the staff are really friendly and the food is fantastic. We had the “Hey Honey Honey Chicken” pizza, roast veg salad and corn chips & salsa to start...and was plenty for our family of 3. The only thing that let the restaurant down was the fact they’d sold out of a good portion of their menu as they’d been so busy over the weekend. Would highly recommend a visit if you’re in Mangawhai!More

Wife and I decided to try the place out, it was ok but definitely not my style of restaurant/bar kids bouncing all over the place and the constant tapping from the people playing spacey games while trying to have a conversation was slightly irritating. The...pizza was ok but definitely wouldn’t be travelling any distance for it.More
