Interesting food, Chinese buns with fillings were the best, dumplings too tough, pork belly too fatty. Did not receive a bill, just told amount to pay.....

Have been to Snug many times. Very popular. Has a nice feel to it. Good selection of drinks. I think the food is over rated and overpriced. Good addition to the New Plymouth cocktail scene.
