Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Friendly helpful staff. Came here for a family lunch just before Christmas and we all enjoyed the food. I had chorizo hash with a poached egg. Generous serving with lots of chorizo. The flat white coffee had a nice flavour however it wasn't strong enough...for me. As a Wellingtonian I am used to stronger coffee. Would definitely go there again to try the other offerings on the menu.More

Worth visiting for the extraordinary design and Artwork by Adrian Worsley. Five stars for the venue. The coffee had much to be desired. My trim flat white was luke warm, tasteless and the cup half full of muddy froth. Could just be a bad day...for the barista but at $5 per cup… not worth the risk.More

Called in here for lunch when we were on a tiki-tour around the Waikato/Thames Valley in late July. There was me and hubby, plus my brother and my sister. Three of us chose our meals off the menu, my brother chose a peach slice from...the cabinet. The three of us all had burgers. Hubby and I had the Horseman’s burger which had two beef patties, and my sister had the Lipsey burger. All the food was nice, but to be honest the Horseman’s burger could have done with just one beef patty, it didn’t really need two. The Lipsey burger had chicken, bacon, camembert and onion along with the usual salads and sauces. We sat inside, just by the door as we’re trying to avoid being too close to others at the moment. There were some outside tables but we decided it was a bit cold for being outside so we compromised. Service was okay. You order at the counter after you’ve perused the menu at your table. They were a bit slow bringing out the little saucer with whipped cream to go with my brother’s peach slice, but to be fair he started eating it as soon as it arrived so they had probably figured he wouldn’t eat it till our burgers had arrived. Didn’t use the bathrooms so not sure what they are like. Would we go back? Probably ,though it’s very rare for us to be in Te Aroha at meal times.More

Visiting our daughter and husband for the weekend. Popped in here for brunch before heading home. Husband and I had the cheese scone, perfect and the kids had big breakfast ( I think that was its name) perfect, lots of bacon and the homemade hashbrowns...looked delicious. We Will come back and try one of your salads next time we visit, they read beautifully. The staff were all polite, friendly and very helpful.More

Love the decor and location. This is my favourite place for coffee in Te Aroha. The cake is not bad either!

It's a fairly central meeting place, with varying standards of service, dependent on when you might go. In general, it's OK, but on a bad day, you might wish you'd gone elsewhere. An annoying thing is that the local council seem to have morning client...meetings in the side room among other diners. You can hear everything (private stuff) being discussed. Council - clueless. For Ironique patrons, unfortunate.More

Teenager had nachos which she indicated were fine. I had the bacon wrapped scallop salad that totally lacked any hint of citrus flavour per the menu and the scallops were tiny and rubbery which was disappointing. Hint - Take insect repellant if you sit near...the doors. Our feet got totally marauded.More

Visited Ironique for lunch, we had a chicken and bacon burger which was very good. The large portion meant that we could have easily shared a meal. The mocha coffee drink was lovely. There is plenty of seating both inside and out. The friendly service...means we will be back.More

Good nachos, good soup of the day, very good iced chocolate. Good service. Got about 7 sandfly bites. This is a Te Aroha problem by the look of it.

Last Sunday on a fine spring mid-late morning this place was buzzing, when I went after a spell of gardening. So many were people eating in and at the pavement tables out-side, I opted for to cabinet food to go. As I'm local and I...did not want to wait or take a table for one, I took my selection to share with a temporarily house-bound friend at her place. We enjoyed halves each of a savoury scone & a date and orange followed by whole chocolate brownies for each of us . Scones were a generous size, freshly made and we both enjoyed our halves, brownies were a little dry but washed down with our home-made coffee, they were much appreciated by my friend. The young woman serving was obviously busy but pleasantly friendly and obliging.More

We walked into this restaurant with a bottle of wine and one of spirits. The hostess walked out briskly and barked 'we're not byo' - a simple sorry in front of the statement would have softened it so much and made her seem a lot...less aggressive. We replied its ok we wont open them and we sat ourselves at a table. We ordered and got a couple of beers. I had a chicken and bacon burger which was tasty and the fries were good but I wouldn't eat there again - sour taste in my mouth from the rude welcome.More
