Love the menu at No.8, great selection of food that just kept on coming. The staff were friendly and we appreciated the service. We particularly enjoyed the pork belly, beef cheeks, chicken satay and the deep fried ice cream...yyuummm! Will absolutely be back.

No.8 is a great addition to the Whangarei food scene. I came here first with a group of friends just after it was first opened and then again last night. Both the food & service have been great, so kudos to the people behind No.8 and the sister ship at The Quay opposite. Great vision and execution of what the town basin needed!

Big shout out to Steve and Holly for creating the perfect menu for our work Christmas event - delicious Asian-fusion menu perfectly matched with craft beer and exquisite wines. Thanks for letting us decorate the table to set the festive scene. We all had a great time and enjoyed the experience. 10 out of 10! Will definitely be back.

This was a birthday treat and it was a very good Asian fusion style restaurant. The plates are very generous and it is great to get a variety of meals and share. The food just comes as it is ready and in no particular order. The flavours are great and we especially enjoyed the Pork Belly, Brazed beef cheeks and the Thai kumara dish. The desserts were the only let down...(deep fried ice cream - batter too thick and saffron on the syrup cake was a bit overpowering) but we will still return for the other dishes. Lovely position as well in the basin.

I ordered the soft-shell crab and was a bit disappointed. It's not that it was not tasty but the dish was overpriced for what it was and the accompaniments were simply average - plain slaw, light-weight aioli.
