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.

After 15 years of living across the world from each other, my two friends and I were finally reunited and it couldn't have been a better night for our first catch up. This was out first time to 'Red Earth Bistro' and it couldn't have...been better. Even thought the place was packed the service we were given was AMAZING, the food was delicious and what a great menu. Lamb meatballs, French onion soup, Steak with scallops, Beef snitzel with Marsala sauce, Orange roughy and Mango and White Chocolate Cheesecake. Madam Sass all the way and great ambiance. We will definitely be back.More

I'm not sure if the manager's reaction influenced my meal review, but we booked for 13 people and at last minute 3 couldn't make it. (2 were children). At the arrival I told the manager there would be only 10 adults. He abruptly said I...should've phoned to let him know. The restaurant wasn't full that night so he wouldn't have turned anyone away. We found our meals weren't so tasty as we've had a couple years ago. The cocktails were nice. Service very good. The restaurant has always been expensive and feel it should be enjoyable at the price.More

Our third visit. Outstanding in every way. No longer the need to go into Auckland city when we have this surprising place in the heart of Papakura on our doorstep from Karaka.

10/10 - Best kept secret in Papakura. We were only here a few weeks ago for a friends birthday and when we came back this time it was like coming home. They even remembered hat we drank last time!!! Food was well I resented, tasty...and filling. A well thought out wine selection which we appreciated. No room for dessert as we were SO full after our mains and entrees . Thanks for being amazing!!!More

The breads and dips were delicious. We had the lamb rack special, wagyu beef brisket, eye fillet with bacon wrapped scallops and garlic cream, and hanging beef. The first three mains were perfect and the hanging beef was ok. It took a while to order...our mains but the facilities were immaculateMore

Lovely evening with my husbsnd at Red Earth on a very rare date night. The servers were sweet and funny with the perfect smount of attentiveness. The atmosphere was relaxed, but sophisticated and warm. The food excellent. Although my husband's steak was better than my...chicken, everything was fresh and satisfying. Cocktails and coffees were strong, as we like them. I'm so glad to have finally had the chance to go here and will be back as soon as possible.More

Visited recently with my wife and daughter and we were pleasantly surprised. Pretty good reviews, so we thought we would try it and I'm glad we did. The service was great, polite and friendly. The food was very tasty and the drinks were also good....The only one drawback, was sitting at the front of the restaurant by the door...….every time someone came in or left, we got a draft of cold air. To be fair, it was a pretty mild night 15 degrees, but from the comfort of the restaurant, the cold air felt cold. There's not much you can do about the floor plan but it did detract slightly from a very nice meal and night out. We would definitely visit again, but would ask not to be seated where we were.More
