I was quite disappointed. There were no plant based/ vegan meal Choices. The gnocchi was painfully salty. The waitresses spent half the time standing in a corner chatting rather than checking on the needs of patrons. Our water was not topped up. I waited nearly...10 min trying to get my server’s attention. The restaurant was far from busy or understaffed. But the menu seemed good, the presentation of the food was excellent. We enjoyed our chocolate bomb dessert. But Im not rushing back.More

The food was good and the service to the table was also ok but we were told at 8.55.pm that we had 5 mins to order desert before the kitchen closed, then were told they would start sweeping/cleaning the area around us and then we...were told at 9.30pm that they were closing! What restaurant closes at 9.30pm on a Saturday night! There were 2 other tables of people still drinking who were also a bit outraged that we were being rushed off our table and out the door. Very disappointing when the food had been good and we had been having a nice evening as two couples catching up. It was like the young people left in charge had a party to get to!More

My husband and I went here for dinner. The service was good. We got one starter which came out in two halves instead of one which was a bit disappointing. We both had the pork belly which was lovely, but very small. The side of...vegetables was small as well, so, unfortunately, my Husband left hungry which was concerning considering we spent close on $100. One thing worth mentioning is that I saw a waiter eating with his hands while waiting at the service counter to collect food. He was scoffing so that he could work as well. Not good hygiene practice. This had deterred us from returningMore

Pleasant room, welcoming excellent service and simply good food, well prepared . Delicious duck leg special and fillet steak were our choices. We feel lucky to have such a good restaurant producing really delicious food, so close to us. Recommended. Maybe offer a couple of...new wine specials..?More

Myself and 5 friends went to Papermoon last week for dinner. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was amazingly delicious. Just a shame at 8.45pm a female staff member started washing the floors while we were still there we found that...a little off putting.More

Paper Moon has always had consistent good service and hospitality. This morning was no exception. However when we went to sit outside on the higher stools I noticed bird droppings on the seat back. No problem, just swap it out for another unused one, unfortunately...every one was the same. So just don't lean back. Then we noticed the table we were at was also sticky. Time for a bit more attention to cleaning might be in order. Coffee was nice and service friendly.More

Stopped in for lunch with the family. Best. Decision. Ever. The quality of food way surpassed our expectations. The prices were reasonable and the service good. Highly recommend.

This is our local... super friendly staff and the food doesn't disappoint. We shared the squid and a plate of fries. The squid was yummy and soft. Cooked to perfection.

Popped in for a quiet lunch on a Sunday. Discovered they have gnocchi on the menu. I love gnocchi, and always try it when it’s on the menu. But, this is the BEST, and I mean THE BEST GNOCCHI I have had, ever! That includes...Italy & France! I am blown away! I will be back, again and again! Wow! Thanks chef, you rock!More

After being my local for about 9 year I can honestly say they’ve just gotten worse and worse throughout the years. Ridiculous pricing for sub par food trying to be something it’s not. Especially for vegetarians, my friend ordered the tapioca fritters and was given...2 tiny potions whilst others had huge chicken burgers for only $3 extra! Both are on the “Bar Snacks” menu yet poles apart. His were flavourless and dry too. The definition of daylight robbery. Staff are usually polite but lack any kind of personality. Especially recently it’s been consistently awful and I’m not going back. Fantail and Turtle in Smales Farm are far better in pretty much every way. Staff are lovely and the food has never had a bad day. If I have to be in Mairangi for a drink, Tiger has a new customer.More

It is legal, but I think it’s socially unacceptable. It spoils the ambience for everyone else.
