This restaurant does not offer anything for children and no Fries. The portions are very small 4 chicken wings for $17. With no prep in the wings just deep fried. No garnish. The squid was off. We asked for dressings and sauces to be in...the side. This did not happen. We aware charged a 15% service charge on a Sunday. This was not a bank holiday and possibly illegal. Although it was a public holiday in the following Monday. There are many choices for food in Orewa. Keep walking past this one.More

Spectacular food exceptional flavours. We opted for a number of smaller plates rather than a main each and it was absolutely the right decision. So many flavours such great variety. The small dishes didn’t all come out together but were frequent enough that it worked...great. Busy place every table full and the service was still pretty good. Will definitely come backMore

We had the $70 per head banquet and it was a total rip-off. We were 18 guests and at a long table. The food arrived on small plates to share between us and was insufficient even for one taste of each plate. Overpriced for a...banquet (and I use the word loosely) The noise was deafening and you could barely hear the person next to you and it was impossible to hear someone else at the table or staff. Drinks overpriced! The cherry on the top was the 15% surcharge an extra $57.00 for a meal hat was way to expensive to begin with!!More

First time we'd returned in a couple of years. Food is excellent and the service was great (a material improvement over our initial visit). Our waitperson was very good. Restaurant was busy and so can be noisy. Good choice of wines. With drinks, came to...just over NZ$400 for 6 people.More

One of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was great. I would recommend the sticky ribs and calamari. They are smaller portions but worth every bite!

Love the duck fried rice here. I always try to get something different but never can 😂 Such a good place with awesome decor, lovely staff and atmosphere. The only fault I could give this visit was that I was sat in walk path and...constantly felt I was gonna be collided with the staff. But other than that great place.More

I think the food is best shared with a group of friends, so you get to taste more of the delicious dishes. I certainly got some inspiration for my humble home cooking. So good to have the variety of cuisines available in our country! Our...bill for four people was substantial, but we think that it was met with value for money.More

Food is beautiful, the chicken cooked to perfection, the duck unbelievable, even the vegetables had the right amount of crunch. Staff helpful and service quick. Atmosphere was buzzy and the place was packed, so a little noisy if you were going for a intimate dinner,...but love this place😍More

Sorry. Not sure. I’m back in the UK and not clear how tight the lock down is there. A lot of restaurants in the UK are doing home delivery so it’s worth asking.
