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.

The food at kowhai kitchen is absolutely delicious and there is a great variety of options, plus the staff were very willing and able to make something special to meet our dietary requirements. The staff were super friendly (and funny too! 😂) Loved it! Highly...recommend this little gem out in the backwaters of Nelson. We’ll be back for sure.More

Able to sit outside in the sun and enjoy breakfast on 2 occasions. Staff are friendly and the food is good. You are not overloaded with choice in Tapawera but this place is good.

Look, there's nothing wrong with this place, they made a nice milkshake, the staff were helpful, but nothing rung my bells. The chillier cabinet was half empty, as was the hot food serving bay - perhaps it had been a busy day - or perhaps...it's just one of those places. It's just a stop on route - shame because it felt like it could be something.More

I am sorry that your visit wasn't all that you hoped for. Unfortunately this was our first summer running the cafe and it was quite the learning curve. Trying to work out how much food to have available versus what would have to be thrown...More
