We usually really love the whole experience at Number 8, the decor straight off the bat puts anyone in a good mood. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. Service is swift, and professional. However, (yeah, theres a but) due to the style of ordering, as in share at least 3 - 5 plates between 2 people, and a whole lot more for a group, we have quickly exhausted the menu, and feel it needs an update, or at least have a specials board with a few surprise items. At our recent dining experience, we had the chicken curry, which was delicious, the squid, good, and finally the pork, which had a few dry pieces. Overall a really nice experience, just not a wow experience.

Great customer service, generous portions, delicious cocktails. Reserving a table was easy as it gets very busy over the lunch period.

Superb Asian fusion cuisine. We had a selection of the small plates with a side of bok choi. All dishes were beautifully constructed, flavored and presented. Service was well- judged and attentive. Highly recommend.

Wonderful food and service from Sam and his team . Went without expectation and left astounded at the quality of service, food and overall experience. This Whangarei eatery could teach many around NZ how to perform without doubt. Would return here in a heartbeat .
