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.

Food was outstanding!! Really delicious sharing style plates of food. Beautifully presented and super yummy! The service was excellent and the restaurant has a nice ambience. I would recommend trying Meld if you come to Invercargill.

An Asian fusion restaurant, we had one of the set menus. The food portions were small-ish, glad we ordered extra rice. Service excellent and the food itself was beautifully presented and very tasty.

Food was tasty, especially the salmon, but not outstanding. Set menu was very small and restaurant was uncomfortably cold. We were all hungry after. Shrinkflation? Cost cutting on the heating? Not sure if they were having an off night, or if the standard has slipped.

Food was OK. Service was not great! Clearing plates as we were eating. The waiter leaned across my food after being told not to take a plate away? Had to ask Several times for water and drinks took forever to arrive.

Beautiful Asian fusion cuisine. All the items we ordered were so tasty and presented well. We had exceptional service, that wasn’t over the top either. We would say it’s one of the best restaurants we’ve been to this year! And would definitely come back next...time we are In Invercargill.More

Just another ILT poor performance food was remarkable average set menu for 4 at $75 per head was just enough for 2 to 3 people Staff were poorly trained to the point of being annoying No gold medal speights in drinks menu, rip off won't...be back. We need to stop the trust monopoly in this town.More

We had the $49 preordained menu for two. To be frank, we’ve had mixed entrees at Indian restaurants that left us more satisfied. The meal was so small we ended up ordering the fried chicken dish for another $25 too. There were eight in our...group, all the meals were on the small side. All commented that the meals were tasty, but left everyone wanting. Tasty, well presented, excellent service and good ambiance made up for the plate proportions somewhat.More

Entre and mains all come out at same time, they say this is normal and you have no choice. Makes for dismal dining experience as feel rushed and your table is so small and congested with all these plates you struggle to feel you can...eat out of them as they are balancing on edge of the table buy the time you have glasses of water and a drink stuff all room left. Have been her two times now won't be coming back as not a relaxing time and there is no room for you wallet, phone or glasses to be on table either. Food is nice and tasteful recommend food but real shame they bring entre and mains out at same time, So if you want to eat hurriedly and with no room on your table and ahappy to keep glass of wine in your hand while you eat your meal then come hereMore

Entered & stood waiting a while as server was busy. We were happy with table & service from there on in was efficient & attentive. Menu written in extremely small print rather off putting. Decided on banquet for 2. Kimchi cucumber was completely tasteless was...looking forward to this as we love kimchi something went wrong here. Salmon dish was plain no flavour just salmon with ginger on side. Must have been bad night for chefs, very disappointed. I dont mind small portions but needs to be amazing flavour, could have made this at home.More

This was a total pleasure. Firstly it has a lovely, smart, modern ambience. Secondly the service was excellent and third but not last, the food was outstanding. Small servings yes but designed to share - so perfect. Flavours and presentation were top class. Possibly our...best food in a week of delicious experiences. True fusion, carefully crafted dishes designed to please. We loved it. $200 for 4 people. We had a great wine and 7 plates between us. All totally delicious. Wow 🤩More

Joined several friends at this new restaurant. Very interesting food choices. Wide menu and drinks list. Our group tried several meals including banquet options. All reported great tastes and presentation, all quickly served. If you want a restaurant for friends where the food deserves to...be the topic on conversation this is it. If I had to search for for a criticism it would be that it is a bit loud, needing some sound deadening.More

Tiny quantities of food even for main course and for a very high price. All dishes seemed to be quite spicy, even though it is not mentioned in the menu descriptions. The sticky beef dish was more glutinous lumps than sticky.

we started our adventure with the bluff oyster, absolutely delicious, you have to try them. Then we had the duck dumplings siu mai followed by the pulled pork num pang style sliders. For the main we had stir fried beef and lamb shank osso buco...curry with rice and the tomato salad. Each of the dishes were absolutely sensational. We loved it! We definitely recommend this restaurant, it‘s the best in town. The service is great and very friendly. We loved everything. Thank you.More
