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.

Lovely vibes and service. We got chai lattes and they were delicious. Staff are very friendly and the cafe is a lovely little spot.

Definitely our go-to. We tried Meshino a few months ago and were hooked. We are creatures of habit so we don't really branch out beyond Eggs bene with salmon (myself) and fish cakes (my better half) with a slice or two now and again. Terrific...coffee as well, and friendly service.More

The cake was dry and not great, the music was too loud and one of the staff not that friendly so very average overall.

We arrived at a very busy lunch hour, found a table in the back corner that was yet to be cleared but this only one available that did not have a reserved note. And there were a couple of large tables with such reserved notes....We ordered our food/coffees and waited for the table to be cleaned, which five minutes later it was not. Thankfully by us a couple finished and left so we moved and cleared the plates etc to the original dirty table. Let me say, the place was really busy and people kept coming in, notwithstanding the fact that there was no place to sit, particularly noting empty tables with reserved notes on them. A minute later a lady came in with a very old couple and moved to the table we had left, albeit still not cleaned. This table was just for two but they were a group of four so pulled up chairs and sat down with drinks awaiting their food order. After five minutes a waitress came over to them and said the table was reserved and the could not sit there. No apparent care was provided for the group, or a ‘let me find somewhere else for you to sit’ , or maybe would have been better just to find another table for the party who had reserved the table. We just watched, could not believe the rudeness. So what about our food, okay at bestMore

Certainly a go to cafe of mine in Christchurch consistently good coffee and food. Always busy which can make for waiting it’s worth it. Ambience good parking can be problematic but that’s inline with how popular the cafe is. Opens early which I enjoy

Set in a big house this café offers plentiful tables inside and offers lots of outdoor seating, mostly in a covered area. Their cabinet offered lots of fresh and attractive items. The counter service couldn’t bear to part with a smile or a greeting. It...set the mood for the rest of my experience in this café. Far from warm or enjoyable. My scone that I ordered was doughy and rubbery. My flat white was too strong, wasn’t finished attractively and was just plonked down on the table. The café had pretty wallpaper in the bathroom which is what I will remember the most fondly. Wont be returning sorry.More

This cafe is close to my home but I gave up visiting a few years ago because of consistently slow and unfriendly service. Decided to give them another try recently only to have three young staff ignore me for several minutes while I waited at...the counter to be served. Not worth wasting one’s time at Meshino when there are plenty of other places to go that treat their customers like actual people!More

Food and service is great and this is our local so we visit often. I reviewed this cafe a while ago but mask wearing is still not consistent by all staff, a requirement by the Government. Many of the people who visit are older and...in the vulnerable age range. I think your customers should feel safe and their safely valued. Really Meshino?More

Made a point of stopping here for a coffee on one of my bike rides since it is on a cycle way. I liked the look of the cabinet items but didn't order anything as there were no prices displayed. WHY do some cafes not...list the price of things?? Do they think no one cares what things cost? Upon ordering my mocha I was charged $5.60 when the board behind the counter listed coffees as being from $4.xx (I forget how much) to $5.50 so then had to dig around in my purse for another 10 cents. I wish now I had said something but the queue behind me was growing. Sat outside to wait for my mocha which turned up 15 minutes later - in a glass and one third foam, both of which I hate. I want to drink my coffee, not eat it, from a proper coffee cup with a handle. To rub even more salt in the wound it was quite sickly sweet as well. Maybe others are impressed with this kind of thing but I was very disappointed in the whole experience and won't be going back.More
