Come on down and check us out on the Main Street of Tairua. Whether it's for a bite to eat or a casual drink in the sun, we look forward to seeing everyone very soon!

Lovely food and excellent service. A hidden gem in Tairua! Duck Bao, dumplings, katsu chicken were some of the dishes we enjoyed.

Caught the ferry over from Pauanui for lunch ... strolled Tairua looking for a lunch spot and was so pleased to have chose here. The special buttered scallops were perfect and the hoisin duck hawker roll on pointe! Washed down with a yummy Good George...cider. We will be back - what a great spot and an awesome menu.More

Vey extensive Asian-inspired menu and excellent variety of food to suit most every palate. Relaxed and very convivial setting and atmosphere. Great service from a team of waiters who really cared about their diners. Well worth a stop when in Tairua.

Popular location but food misses the mark. A strong emphasis on Asian flavours sounded exciting but a couple of our dishes were disappointing. The polenta chips and calamari were both excellent but the scallop dish was underwhelming and the donburi chicken was over cooked and...dry, even the rice and Japanese slaw didn’t make sense. Finally the sashimi was poorly executed, roughly cut and presented on a tiny plate, it looked very amateurish.More

Whilst on summer holidays we went to Flock on two occasions for dinner. The meals were generally good but they there were a few dishes that we couldn’t have as they had run out of chicken, or sushimi or something else. The service was good,...the meal I enjoyed the most was the stick date pudding, normally I don’t like dates, but it was more like a Christmas pudding.More

Wonderful lunch in the sun. Fantastic Asian fusion - so unexpected in little Tairua. Such a well kept secret.

We stopped here during Beach Hop for lunch. Such a neat place with a nice monochromatic colour scheme. The Asian inspired menu all looked delicious. We indulged in the Korean Fried Rice and the Dumplings. Only complaint was that the dumplings were a wee bit...on the salty sideMore

This place would be packed out in any major city. We stopped for lunch and chose on the specials of the day, a chicken burger and the curry of the day. I chose the yellow curry and was pleasantly surprised the prawn was the same...price as the chicken curry. Of course I chose the prawns. The curry was amazing, strong Thai flavours and lovely veggies. The serving was good but for the taste I could have eaten double the amount. The chicken burger had a whole breast fillet with an amazing crusty coating. We would love to go back and try the rest of the menu. The service was excellent and the place was immaculately clean.More
