Mk is a totally unique concept , with meals based around different sorts of dumplings with a array of creative healthy salad items that made each meal look like a festival. The deserts are the most magical , fantastical, constructions of all. And a unique...chef who knows his wines. All at a very reasonable price. A unique “don’t miss” experience.More

Yes, I know, some people might be skeptical when reading all the glowing reviews about MK Restaurant (named after the friendly owners Mirek and Krystyna). We finally were able to secure a table on our last stay in Hanmer Springs - and so happy we...did! I will not repeat all the glowing sentences which many reviewer said before me, just this: It was one of the very best meals we had in a very long time, served by Mirek, a perfect and genuine host, and prepared in the kitchen by Krystyna. The concept of MK in regards of menu and choices on offer, and the wine by the glass or bottle might not appeal to everybody - yet I feel anybody with an open mind and taste for something different will enjoy this so personal experience and great food!More

Fantastic service from Mirek with a good sense of humour. Beautifully presented food and probably the tastiest we have enjoyed in a long time. Will definitely come back even if it means driving the distance.

What can I say this little dumpling restaurant is in a league of its own, it is art on a plate. Not only is everything beautifully presented but it also tastes amazing, with so many different flavours on one plate, it's a party in your...mouth. I loved the attention to detail, the ambiance and the passion from the chef explaining all the intricate details of the dishes, just wow, we will be back soon, thank you 🥰More
