We ordered the Big Kiwi Breakfast. Everything was the same except for the 2 giant sausages. Tasted like questionable meat to me. Coffee, eggs and omelet was good. $9.40 in New Zealand dollars. Kinda expensive.

Always slow service here and today was no exception. Kept waiting in the drive through and no apology for the wait or any "hello" "Thanks" or even a verbal acknowledgement that I was there. Drive to the pt chev branch for how it should be.

The food is always the same. Service and Cleaning is not. This restaurant in particular was not clean and lacked customer service. Fortunately I realized so before ordering.

We just had our early dinner nearby and it was around 4.30pm and decided to come over for a drink. The restaurant was very brightly lighted with nice sofa seats and was spacious. The restaurant was not crowded then. We decided to have drinks and ordered the ice frozen cola and lime shake with fries. Service was prompt and staff... More

I remember this restaurant from years ago, when it had mezzanine seating and decorative stairs leading up to it. Now it feels like a barn going into it, not helped by the front windows being boarded up at the time. Cold miserable looking place with horrible seats and tables. They clean the floors at least, they were wet and like... More

Took grandkids for a birthday breakfast To a reasonably new restaurant in Balmoral. Food was ok but 3 items missing from an order for 6 people. Purchased meal but no hash brown supplied. Then charged for the replacement. How can you enjoy pancakes without butter. Can you believe they ran out of butter? Finally found some in McCafe. Come on... More

Went up to the Maccas in the middle of Queen St. The first thing you see is homeless people sitting outside, not looking very hungry as there where loads of empty wrappers around them. Inside was just as bad dirty tables and just a unclean feel. There was a huge line and only one till open. Walked out and will... More
