“Overpriced Gross Slop”
Review of Timaru Roast

Timaru Roast
Ranked #14 of 28 Quick Bites in Invercargill
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 October 2023

Came in and ordered an early dinner on Saturday 30th Sept & it was truly appalling - the carrots and peas were barely cooked and had a funny taste to them, they didn't listen to our order and missed a sauce, the pork cracking was so bad - never had anything like it. Poor quality, overpriced slop - have been here twice now and will NEVER go back. Truly gross & have had deli belly since eating Sat night.
Disappointing as is the only roast shop in Invercargill, it was dead quiet when I went in - now I see why...

We needed a substantial meal on our way home after a long day and this did not disappoint. 4 roast veggies plus mixed veg and choice of meat. Delivered to our clean window table. Same quality as a pub meal but half the price and twice as quick. Big queue of locals.

Our first time was tonight we came for dinner. It was absolutely beautiful meal!! It would put a lot of other restaurants to shame! So reasonably priced too. Meals were big and delicious. We will definitely be back very soon
