Fantastic place to eat, lovely food, great helpful staff. Interesting menu all freshly prepared. Lovely cocktails but rather expensive but then again they always are. I would highly recommend eating here.

I read the reviews on Macau and decided we should give it a go - it was amazing! We ordered the stir fried greens, steamed pork buns, Bang Bang Chicken, Salmon Teriyaki Bowl and the Fries - couldn't fault any of the dishes! Flavours were great and we ended up with so much food we struggled to finish it all.... More

We had dinner at Macau on a Wednesday evening and they were fairly busy. The place has a interesting décor and great atmosphere. The service is based on sharing plates which is a style we love. We ordered plates two at a time and found that they arrived very promptly, next time we will order one at a time to... More

We dined here recently for dinner, attracted to the place for its beautiful Asian décor and lighting. A key aspect of the food service here is that diners are advised that they may order just a dish or two to start and order more as desired. This is a real advantage over those establishments that have guests order all that... More

Came across the reviews while looking for an Asian meal in Tauranga. A very nice surprise tucked away on The Strand. Tasted the Prawn cups, Bang bang chicken, Ramen noodles, Steamed buns, Massaman beef cheeks curry . All selections were well crafted, if I missed a little bit of the heat part of the Hot,Sweet,Salty and Sour tetralogy. The best... More

We enjoyed our dinning here. The service was good and the atmosphere nice. The location was handy and they had a good beverage list. Pricing was fair.

We ordered a few items on the menu to share. This was hit and miss. Some very good offerings (pork belly) and some very average offerings. Service was good. Certainly not in the legion of e.g. King of Snake.
