Contemporary decor and cool vibes abound in this eatery; with a bustling open kitchen serving up an innovative menu of homemade, modern NZ food. Diners should check out the Atomic coffee, creative cocktails, craft beer selection, a carefully curated wine list stocked with a selection of NZ wines - all best enjoyed with food on the sunny, geo-thermally heated porch, which overlooks a sprawling back lawn with bikes, dress ups and a playhouse to occupy the kids. Evening diners can explore a menu filled with seasonal chef specials produced by a passionate team, in a modern dining room filled with tables of marble and oak, white brick walls and lots of leafy plants. Tonic Bar upstairs is available…
This is our second time just popping in without a booking whilst passing through Rotorua. Both times we have been warmly welcomed, given great service, and enjoyed the meals and drinks we had there. The atmosphere is great and the restaurant and staff give a...nice friendly vibe. We will definitely be back next time we are in Rotorua.More
Just been to Terrace Kitchen. They had a set menu for our group. There was no choices. The waiter asked if everyone ate meat, and provided a vege choice as needed. I asked for a poached egg. No that wasn't possible, even though the breakfast...bun contained an egg. Asked if I could have the egg in my bun poached. No again. So I gave up. When my breakfast bun arrived it was stone cold, egg included. These breakfast buns with their content were pre frozen, and they hadn't heated mine. I do not recommend this place. You might as well get a frozen breakfast from the supermarket.
The coffee was tiny.More
Family of 7 visited and were well looked after by staff. Meals and drinks came out promptly and were delicious. The TK Fried Chicken was incredible with lots of flavour. Good portion meals and the kids loved the dumplings.
We stopped in for lunch on a local's recommendation and were not disappointed. We sat outside in a lovely little sheltered courtyard. We were offered sparkling or still water. The vegetable dumplings and mushroom bao buns were delicious and moreish. The service was friendly and...attentive. Highly recommended.More
My partner and myself got a coffee from Terrace Kitchen yesterday to take away and it was the best coffee we have had in a long time. So much so that we had to turn back to get another. Very lovely and friendly staff too....Will definitely be a regular spot for me when I’m in townMore
There's always a fear on revisiting a restaurant after a while that the standards might have slipped - not here. I do think Terrace Kitchen is the best restaurant in Rotorua and the dumplings, swordfish and vegetable sides were all excellent. In fact, we went...back the next day for more dumplings. Service was friendly and attentive, surroundings are spotless and we're looking forward to the next visit so I pick up a piece of that very tasty looking ginger crunch.More
Went there one morning for a coffee and it was brilliant. Loved the ambience and feel and the decor and the open kitchen and menu looked really good. So we booked for 4. Starters were hot, generous and very tasty. My wife and I both...went for the cauliflower main but it was lukewarm/cold with a weird clash of things going on and limp bok choy. The staff were really attentive and friendly - I think we must have just drawn the rare short straw as our friends really liked their meal. Place seemed very popular with regularsMore
