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.

This place! We wandered in not knowing anything and were seated on vintage living room furniture. (So comfortable !!!) The music (spun from vinyl) was like nothing I’ve ever heard before, couldn’t get enough. The decor! Love. I saw things I forgot I ever knew...about. (The lampshades, the color palette, vintage toys, it’s endless.) But the crowning jewel is the food: an exquisite work of art and absolutely delicious. I will never forget my time in this amazing establishment .More

Very busy on the night we visited which is great for local business and says something about its reputation. Nice food and quirky atmosphere.

We had a great experience here. A mix up re the number booked for was quickly resolved. Not a lot of room at the table but we made it work. The food was 10 out of 10 for all 3 of us (as were the...Margheritas). Large portions and delicious! We had crispy chicken, pork belly and salmon dishes, and we were all very happy with our choices. We will be back.More

A very lively and busy place, you definitely need to book in. We loved the quirkiness, the eclectic mixture of bits and pieces everywhere. The place has a very friendly and comfortable vibe and excellent waiters. We enjoyed the blankets as it was quite chilly...in the outside area. The patio gas heaters were great though. The downside was that the food wasn't as good unfortunately, as we expected. The rice was overcooked and gluggy, the beef curry sauce was not great. Also the speaker was just above our table and the music was quite loud so it made talking difficult.More

Loved every single thing about this little restaurant. The dj/music, the menu, the actual meals (salmon box, dumplings) and the artwork. So stoked we went here as I feel like it sums up the vibe of Raglan. Would 100% visit again.

The food is amazing and the staff are very friendly. It’s a small restaurant inside but there is also seating out the front and back. The music was a little loud which made it hard to have a conversation with friends

Booked last minute for a Saturday night. Lucky to get a table. Pros: we were not rushed through - quite the opposite, food took a while to come which was not a concern. Friendly host, excellent atmosphere and deco. Food was fresh, great flavours so...good value for money. Cocktails were surprisingly good too. Great place for our 16yr old 'party' dinner.More

Booked this restaurant in Raglan for dinner on recommendation, we were not disappointed. Fantastic atmosphere with a DJ playing vinyl on twin decks, mixed music to suit the evening. Food excellent, staff very friendly and attentive. The 3 of us each had different dishes and...shared, all were great taste, The Dan Dan Noodle was my choice and it was a great choice for me. Will be eating here again whilst staying in Raglan.More

My wife and I were both blown away by the beautiful presentation and very tasty food. The noodle bowl and salad that we had were incredibly well seasoned and both had sauces so good we were drinking it after we finished the plates. The margaritas...were delicious. The design aesthetic of the restaurant is great and you’re continually spotting little details; it’s all done by the same artist and really gives the restaurant a unique vibe. To top it off, one of NZ’s best djs, Cian, was spinning tunes in the corner. We shall return!More

What a quirky wee restaurant and so popular with all ages. There was a live DJ playing mainly jazz. Furniture all 1970s and bright oranges, yellows, browns. Staff attentive and quick to take orders. Love that the food is garnished with edible flowers. Very reasonably...priced and beautifully cooked. Our only criticism would be that coriander is not enjoyed by everyone so perhaps that could be served separately from the salad.More
