Enjoyed a wonderful meal tonight. Each course showed the chefs skill. The beef cheeks were very tender, the venison was superb. Special thanks to Rubyjane for looking after us with just the right amount of attention. Recommended.

Wasn’t sure that a restaurant located in the same complex as a sports bar and TAB would deliver the goods but I was pleasantly surprised by its sophisticated and modern interior and the options on the menu. All the meals were good and well presented and the wait staff were pleasant and keen to please.

I took some Dunedin friends for a meal at The Saucy Chef on St Andrew Street and they were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff.
On arriving we were warmly greeted and shown to our table.
I had phoned earlier to book a table and requested it be to the side of the dinning room to which it was. Our waitress Jordan arrived (with a lovely big smile) to greet us and informed us that she was our waitress for the evening . She told us what the specials were and discreetly left us to look at the wine list and menu. Her attention to our table was impeccably. We enjoyed a beautiful meal accompanied by a smooth white wine. As we were lingering over the last of our wine Jordan approached to say good night as her shift had finished and introduced us to Sumanto who would be our waiter if we required any further service.
I can not fault the service by both of the staff. Sumanto was extremely polite and very professional in his work. I will continue taking my visitors to this restaurant and highly recommend it to anyone.
Thanks to Jordan and Samanto for making our night so enjoyable. I hope their professional and informative service will be acknowledge by the management of the restaurant. Thank you till next time.

It was a very enjoyable experience from the moment we walked into the restaurant.
Jordan our waitress was very accommodating, checking frequently throughout the evening to see if we needed anything. The meal was superb. Well presented and of a very high standard. Thanks to the chef, Jordan and James the manager for a wonderful evening.
