The new owners clearly have their stuff together, this place is amazing. Lovely staff, great, fast efficient service, as well as great food. I'm impressed!

This was the worst dining experience I've ever had in NZ - our starters took about 45 minutes to arrive, and after about another hour we were still waiting for our mains. We were there on a weekend (with my elderly grandfather) and the music...More

I ate here in my own. I picked a quiet Wed when a large group had just ordered. The waitress was rushed, but did well and was very friendly. I had a nice Thai Salad and cake. I would go again.
