Arrived with a friend on a Friday afternoon - with no booking but the place was pretty quiet. A very friendly waitress took our orders - one Tatsutage chicken and a beef burger. Both meals were well priced, tasty and generous. We finished with coffees....More

We were there for dinner on a quiet Monday night but that seems little excuse for poor food and service. We stood by the counter for a few minutes while the 3 staff ignored us although there was only one other person waiting for coffee....More

After checking out menus of other nearby restaurants we selected this one for variety and pricing. Lovely wait staff and choices quickly presented with flair - and the food tasted delicious. Do try Salt when you are in the area.

Great service, alway friendly, happy to have dogs in the outside seating area and will always put on the heater if it's cold outside. The food is a delicious variety and served in a timely manner. Consistently does the best coffee in Sumner!

We were given a warm friendly welcome by the utterly friendly staff. The decor and ambience of this cosy restaurant is delightful. Meals were fresh, unique and beautifully cooked. Wouldn't hesitate to return and highly recommend.

Very delicious food and very friendly service. We went there several times and enjoyed each of them. We could die for the hot chocolate and Pepperoni Pizza.

Quite funny that the food in this restaurant was rather bland and demanded quite an amount of extra salt, maybe it's part of the concept. Anyhow, food was average but service was good, a bit slow but good!

Booked for after the movie on Saturday and were not disappointed. Staff were warm friendly and inviting. We had the Steamed Wontons to start which had a little too much sauce, and then the mains of Twice cooked Pork Belly (oh yum yum) and Akaroa...More
