As when we were here last August, this place was buzzing, with quietly efficient, good - humoured, capable young staff, who manage a constant stream of would-be diners without a hitch. Wait to be seated, all will be well. The menu changes constantly, and don't expect Eggs Benny or other usual fare here. What you will get is a generous, attractive serving of fresh, expertly cooked, perfectly spiced, .delicious fare. Oh, and good coffee. Looking forward to next time!

A delicious menu with quality beautifully prepared food and a good wine list. Everyone in the group enjoyed their meals. Inventive food, not predictable and really really tasty.

An authentic New Zealand ambience, good coffee, nice staff. Very popular and sometimes hard to get a seat. Not so accessible for those with mobility concerns. Recommended.

From the moment we arrived the staff were brilliant. Helpful, happy and professional. Food was amazing. Fresh and full of flavour. Bang bang chicken salad with a beautiful balance of flavours. Pork belly bao buns, soft, delicious and succulent. Glass of chardie - devine. Gin cocktail- delicious. A little hidden gem. Do it!

Don’t miss this place. The beef cheeks and salmon and edamame are awesome. The staff super friendly.
