Called in for a light lunch on Saturday. Great welcome from the staff. Had roast vegetable salad with feta and the chicken wings with fries. Food and drink arrived promptly and were excellent. Our waiter had a great sense of humour and really seemed to enjoy his job. Made for a very good atmosphere. Will definitely be back when next in the area and would go for dinner next time.

My wife and I are Brits who are travelling around the North Island with our Kiwi friend who lives in Tauranga. We have eaten in many places around the world - and been lucky enough to eat in restaurants back in the UK that are owned by celebrity chefs. I have to say that the burger I had last night at CBK was the best I have ever had. Can't put it any clearer than that - the taste and texture of it was amazing. I assume it was NZ beef. Wow! Our waiter / server was a guy called Greg. He was extremely polite, welcoming and very attentive and delivered excellent service to 3 extremely happy customers - thank you so much Greg. Greg and the chef who cooked my burger deserve a pay rise. Coming from the UK we hadn't heard of CBK before and so didn't know what to expect when we decided to eat there last night - well what an amazing pleasant surprise we had. We have friends who will be coming over from the UK to also tour NZ in a few weeks time and we will be highly recommending that they visit CBK and ask for Greg.

We booked earlier in the day and were very glad we did! It was super busy - always a good sign and the weather was nice so we asked if we could sit outside and they happily moved us!
Our waitress was called Misty and she was so lovely! The food was absolutely amazing, we had the chicken wings, didn’t realise they were 1$ each otherwise we’d of had more! A trio of something which was ok. The Main was The Mix steak where you cook it yourself, this was brilliant. Desert was a kitkat cheesecake and cookie - delicious.!! Will be coming back on our way back up north!

Thank Mel C

We spent Labour weekend 2017 in Tauranga and walked past CBK and Kelly was at the door offered us a table but we said we would be back Saturday night, the only restaurant that had anyone greet you so 10 out 10 for that. We went back and had dinner Saturday and Sunday night. Great service and food. If you are in Tauranga would highly recommend CBK.
