15mins after ordered, drinks still not arrived and only 10 customers. Starters came out before drinks and were ok. Rather than have dinner we moved on to the Landing which had fantastic service and food.

Had the beef cheek rendang and the pork belly noodles which were both tasty but would benefit from some more veg. The calamari starter had strange batter that I wasn't that keen on but overall a decent place.

This restaurant caters for all tastes, it has a range of curries, Asian dishes, fish and chips plus a steak if you want it. There is also a superb range of deserts to select from. Friendly relaxed atmosphere.

We have ordered pork bao, duck salad, ribs and rendang and is hard to decide what was the worst! Absolute food disaster and our worst experience in NZ so far. Such a disappointment! Only nice staff :)
