Very attentive staff who explained every dish before we ordered and then again once it was on our table in front of us. Fresh, tasty food that looked amazing - the dessert was like something from Heston's kitchen!
My wife and I had a wonderful meal here at the end of July 2021. Tyler? (the maitre d and waiter) greeted us in a positive and cheerful way. He explained the menu (all meals are the same price - a brilliant idea. The wines...are also all one price). My wife had Empanades and I had Pierogies. The small portion salads that come with all meals were amazing. Each a small explosion of taste. The combination of fried or baked dumplings with the salads couldn't have been more perfect.More
If you were only permitted to use two words to sum up the meal then ‘gastronomic delight’ is it!
As we’d not been before, and in spite of being told the main item was a totally amazing ‘dumpling’, I couldn’t help but envisage the small...yum char style dumpling. Was I wrong!
The chefs are artists, the staff simply fantastic.
I’ll let me pictures say the rest.More
MK is THE hidden gem of Hanmer Springs! Definitely a must eat when you come to visit Hanmer Springs and well worth a special trip when in New Zealand. The service is impeccable and the staff caring about your experience. They make sure you enjoy...yourself and have a flawless experience. The meals were an explosion of unique flavours and the presentation was gorgeous. The food was healthy, the amount perfect, and the taste combinations were amazing. Having dined in many restaurants throughout Europe, North America, the Pacific, and Asia/Australasia, I can hands down say that this is one of the best meals we have ever had. Everything was impeccable from the food, the service, the warm atmosphere, the playlist, the wine, and all in-between. We cannot wait to come back again. Bardzo dziękujemy i pozdrawiamy!More
Wow this restaurant is fantastic.
A real experience, both delicious and colourful display of fabulous food.
The Chef (also the owner) & our waiter Tyler were very obliging make our evening absolutely perfect
My son and I have travelled far and wide over the years. This restaurant is with doubt my most memorable dining experience! The food was beautifully presented, exciting choices and absolutely memorable in every way! Friendly service and great atmosphere! I have been recommending it...to my North Island friends since we were there at the end of last year! Thank you MK!More
We looked at the reviews and thought there was no way this would live up to them all, but we were wrong, it was better!
My husband is a big eater and he was full after only the main. All of the “salads” were delicious...and worked so well together. I feel salad doesn’t do them justice, this was one of the best meals we have had and we’ve eaten Michelin star restaurants in Europe.
While full, we used our second stomach for dessert and certainly glad we did. Again, this looked incredible and tasted simply divine. There was not one part of the meals we would have changed and it was so well priced. I’d expect to pay far more for such a high quality meal.
The service was also superb. Our waitress was attentive, knowledgable and helpful in explaining the menu. The chef even came out to chat with us and cleared our plates.
I’d come back to Hanmer just to eat here!More
