The restaurant was empty when we visited, so there was little atmosphere. The food was okay but nothing to write home about. The service was friendly but a little slow considering the lack of customers.

Our party of 4 was well satisfied with the selection and tastiness of our meals...we got there early right after 5PM and glad we did as the tour buses started rolling in by 6PM. Service was efficient. Most of the resturant reviews were ll over the map, but we were very pleased with our choice

We were surprised at the quality of the food, which was exceptionally good. Fried squid divine. Duck and vegetables excellent. Sizzling seafood has enormous mussels, scallops, and wonderful shrimp, oysters, fish, & vegetables. Good value, too!

This was recommended by some local people. It is a large restaurant. The staff were efficient and food tasty. We chose the buffet meal at $32pp and there was plenty of it!

We had the set menu. While the portions were ample, the quality was very ordinary. Very little chicken or corn in the advertised "Chicken & Sweet corn" soup. Everything else pretty oily and tasteless.

Having spent one week holidaying in NZ, my husband and I were craving for asian food and this was one of the restaurants listed on TripAdvisor. We were very skeptical but after a disappointing visit to a restaurant positively reviewed, we decided to try it anyway. Food seems to be on a pricier side on a per dish basis. Chinese... More

Not many great options in Te Anu. We got Chinese take away and went back to our Holiday Park to prepare for our trek.

We went there for lunch on Christmas. There was ample parking space. The restaurant was quite quiet. There were only two waitresses. They spoke minimal English. They were from China. Tofu was not on the menu. But the waitress said they could prepare it. I asked her what type of tofu they had. The waitress simply could not describe it... More

Ordered a duck, venison, ginger beef, one of the fish dishes and a vege/mushroom dish as well. Food was a little pricey but worth it in the end. Went in on a Sun for lunch and wasn't impressed with the general service. Waiting for the bill at the end of the meal when we realised the staff were having lunch... More
