Just had a lovely dinner with immaculate service. Those edamame beans are the perfect snack with a cool beverage & the pork belly, very yummy! Check the photos 😄

Macau is the sort of restaurant where you want to eat with friends, and order one of everything to share. With four of us, there were many delicious items to sample and not one item disappointed. The Edamame with Shichimi Togarashi (Japanese seven spice) was the best edamame I have ever tasted, and although it sounds odd, the Kimchessy Rice... More

Friendly accommodating staff as my dad can't have any garlic, so they advised which food are garlic free and they also amend one of the food to be garlic-free. They explained from the beginning that the food is designed to share so that everyone can have a taste of everything which we've always done anyways. Didn't think that we'll be... More

The best of the evening were the vegetarian rice balls...other than that the food was plentiful, and kept coming! The beef cheeks and the tempura eggplant were rather good too!

We often dine at Macau for our girls dinners. The food is great to share and there is a good selection to suit everyone. We always get the Edame beans and steamed buns to start and vary with 2 other starters to share amongst 5. We then choose 3 mains and its ample, really cost effective and YUM.

Gorgeous array of food from around Asia. The decor is lovely and looks out over the tauranga harbour. We were there with a large group and decided to eat what we ordered instead od sharing. This did cause some stress for the staff trying to get the meals out at the same time, but they did a great job.

The high quality food and creativity of Macau was very unexpected but such a delight. Especially yummy for vegetarians although the asian fusion menu has some thing for everyone. It's a very efficient operation - staff were knowledgable about the food and wine, very friendly, quick service. Some dishes we ordered again as they were so delish! We asked the... More
