Twice in one week; but...

We had two sets of international visitors in the same week, so we decided to take them to The Foodstore to showcase New Zealand's produce and from previous positive experience dining here. Dining on two separate occasions, it was a case of two different experiences. The first evening, the... read more

We shared two starters of sourdough bread with an olive oil and pomegranate balsamic dip between four people. They were are great indication of the quality and presentation of the meal that was to follow. My main course of the market fish (Tuna) with potato gratin was one of the best fish dishes I have been served. The large serving... More

Just had the most amazing three course meal. Started with the oysters with wasabi cream. Then we both had the fillet steak with the option of the most incredible mushroom puree, goat cheese fritter and red wine jus. This was followed with the apple, rhubarb and walnut crumble and cheeseboard with warm fruit bread. The only negative being our waitress... More

Came here on a week night with family plus a (sleeping) baby in the group and the staff were very professional and accommodating. I've eaten here 3 times now and haven't had a bad experience. Nice wine list and wonderful flavours from the food. The Foodstore has a great ambience and décor, isn't pretentious and would be a place I... More

A group of 6 of us dropped in for lunch. The 1st aspect that impressed me was the professionalism of the wait staff. He would suggest wine to go with specific food items. If the serving was adequately large, he will caution us from "over-ordering". All our clarifications (from the sauce to the "non-English" sounding descriptions, etc), He would respond.The... More

We had a family meal and were very grateful that the chef changed one of the dishes to suit our fussy eater. With him taken care of the rest of us enjoyed exquisite meals. I even enjoyed parsnip mash as it went so beautifully with the duck. That was unexpected! Couldn't fault anything.

One of the best meals I've ever had!! The fish of the day with the celariac and muscles was to die for. My husband's steak was done to perfection and finally the butterscotch pana cotta with salted caramel and hokey pokey was a symphony of taste sensations. Yes I know the fine wine is probably talking, but if I was... More
