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.

The food was amazing. I live in a foodie town (San Francisco) and the combination of flavors was something I had not experienced. Our entire group had different items and I tried the Turkish eggs, the chicken flat bread and the best surprise of the...bunch were the pancakes. I highly recommend all items here. Also the staff was fantastic. Harjinder especially, she walked us through the each item on the menu ,made some recommendations. She even gave us a heads up about the city parking out front (she could tell we were tourists). The atmosphere was fun and energetic and it did seem like a local favorite. We were with 7 people in total and they had no problem takening care of us.More

Ludi is the best, gorgeous dinner. The brisket could melt in your mouth. The tacos were delicious but they had too much coriander. Everything else was brilliant. Service 10/10

Decent brunch - eggs on toast were nice, good portion size. The buckwheat pancakes were tasty - not very sweet but maple syrup on the side which was great as one of us has a sweet tooth and the other doesn’t. Light and fluffy pancakes...and nice accompaniments. Coffee is very bitter which is to some people’s tastes but not my personal preferenceMore

Food was tasty and the coffee was great. Atmosphere is good and each area well decorated. There wasn’t much wow factor to my eggs on toast. Overall nice place for breakfast.

We stumbled upon this shop for breakfast and were absolutely delighted. The food was exceptional, I got the Vegan Butty and it was one of my favorite plant based sandwich I've ever had. My partner got the smoked salmon bagel sandwich and it was the...best bagel we'd had in NZ. The service was amazing, everyone was so kind. The vibes of the shop were also great, we asked them for the spotify playlist and listened to that driving around the South Island for the rest of our trip. Do not miss this place!!More

Wow did we love this restaurant! We sat outside on a beautiful night and rocked out with the dj! Everything we got was super creative and very flavorful. I don't typically like beets but the hasselback beetroot was exceptional. The cauliflower with Zatar even made...my cauliflower-adverse husband fall in love. But the highlight was the spicy Korean chicken bao bun. The buns are blue (they said they use activated charcoal) and the chicken was so delicious I just wanted more and more!More

Best coffee in Queenstown. Aussie review. We have been to 5 other ‘coffee’ places that weren’t bad, but they weren’t great. This place has great, strong coffees. I got the full cream extra shot Cappa and it was creamy.

Great food, very busy and received my coffee just as I was finishing my Turkish eggs (which were great, esp the chickpeas!) Didn’t have a great seat, very high table right at the back, kept getting knocked by other customers and felt in the way.

Was looking for a vegetarian friendly place for an early dinner on my first day in Queenstown. Had the spicy eggplant dish with sticky rice and cucumber salad. It was excellent. Servers were nice, dj was playing excellent music and vibe was laid back. Has...indoor and outdoor dining. Probably needs an expanded entree line up but plenty of interesting shareable finger food to create a meal.More

What a great spot! If you go make sure you get the Beef Brisket and Chips, Alvin was also such a delightful person and helped me out immensely. That man is irresistible and l'd go back just to chat with him!
