It came highly recommended by the motel and we had a limited time frame because we were booked in for a concert at the Turner Centre at 7:30 and needed to pick up our tickets first. Our mistake was not booking a table first because the place was jumping when we got there just before six. Nevertheless we were seated... More

Went here after reading all the reviews with high hopes of having a good experience but unfortunately was very disappointed with the whole experience. The food I felt was over priced, I mean who charges $37 for a Thai curry. Ordered the spring rolls for entree for $14 got 2 small spring rolls cut into four( very disappointed) My husband... More

I am sorry , did not have a good experience . Your thoughts on our prices are noted, our meals are fairly priced for the products we use. We use free range and spray free/ organic where possible and fresh line caught fish, not frozen. These products may reflect in the prices of some dishes. The menu is well balanced... More

We arrived at the Wharepuke Subtropical Accommodation around dinner time and without a booking in the Café, and they were fully booked for the evening. The staff did an amazing job of seating us for a quick and wonderful meal, noting we had to vacate our table before a certain time. Service was the perfect blend of friendly and knowledgeable....

Fabulous food and lovely garden. We had the fixed menu and all the food was cooked to perfection. Great flavours and huge portions. Was a little noisy but that was because of a large booking. Wood definitely return!

We enjoyed the most beautifully and authentically prepared Thai banquet selection on a Friday night. The food was absolutely delicious, and the service professional, friendly and excellent too! The outdoor setting evoked the tropics too. If we lived in KeriKeri we would eat here every Friday night! Loved everything. My husband is a Chef and he too was most impressed.... More

Arrived about 6:25 for a takeaway. We were given the takeaway menu to make our decision about what to eat and decided just after 6:30. But by the time they went to take our order at 6:35, we were told by the person who gave us the menu that takeaway finished at 6:30 and refused to serve us. This is... More

I am sorry that we couldn't provide you with takeaways. We did however offer a table for you to dine in the restaurant. We are very busy from 6.30 - 8 pm therefore are unable to offer takeaways at this time. Our takeaway option runs from 5 - 6.30 pm, maybe you didn't quite understand this policy. The kitchen is...

I had dinner here with work colleagues. It was a little pricey so I had to be very selective but I still managed to have a gorgeous main, sumptuous dessert and one glass of wine. The quality was fantastic so that made up for the price. I do believe though that you should pay for good quality so I wasn't... More

Fantastic food with a wide variety for every palate, I personally had a delicious curry which was the bomb! Deserts were equally yummy. The staff were on to it and the food was nice and hot. The chef even checked up to ensure everything was perfect. Cant fault it, best meal to be had in Northland
