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.

Overall, not bad. I had a taste of prime roast and I would rate it average, Overall the food is pretty well done but maybe there could be better work in some areas. Gravy To be fairly honest the gravy could have looked a little...darker, I feel my roast is swimming in curry instead of gravy and it felt Indian, even the oil looks like curry, It tastes fine but I suggest adding some gravy colouring so it is more tempting for consumption and not Indian. The overall taste is fine. Plating I guess the plating works too because the plates are big enough, but I genuinely felt like the pork kinda got slapped onto the plate and it feels weird, I guess more work could be done on the plating but I wasn't too bothered about it. Overall the experience isn't bad, I will defiantly invite my best friend George Hollings to come over to have a taste of your roasts, I bet he will be thrilled to be fueled by your food!More

We drove through Taupo and wanted a quick, cheap, almost healthy meal. I'm trying to avoid bread so this ticked all the boxes. I've never had takeaway roast before and this exceeded my expectations, only the spud was a little disappointing, looking like it had...been deep fried some time ago. Overall I was pleasantly surprised and would happily return.More

We had the Lamb and the pork (Large size). Both meats were tender and served with gravy and plenty of vegetables. This is a excellent value for money. Eat in or take away. Another local eatery when of lived here always yum.

Looking for a good well cooked roast meal just like home cooking. Even small meal more than enough although it was so scrummy you pushed yourself to finish it. The crackling was everything you could want Great service.

We had the beef and the pork (medium size). Both meats were tender and served with gravy and plenty of vegetables. This is a budget restaurant that gives excellent value for money. Eat in or take away. We ate in.

We had a large group of rugby boys come here for dinner during the rugby festival. It was hands down the best place we ate all weekend. Tummy's were full and still plenty to go around. Staff were very friendly and even gave us a...group discount which we didnt expect. We will return!More

Great place for a quick, easy yummy dinner. The mid-size was probably more than I needed but I did my best. Was a better size fit for my husband. Have been here a few times over the last few years and have enjoyed it every...time.More
