Yum yum yummy

We visited after NZ winning the cricket. The food was just amazing, an explosion of flavours in our mouths. The friendly staff fitted us in as was busy and we didn't have a booking. Would love to come back :)

I love Moochowchow and always bring overseas visitors to try it. The wait staff are always helpful for suggestions and their advice has never led me astray. The caramelised pork hock is one of the best things I've ever eaten

Not a lot else to add - looked nice through the windows but their lack of letting us know they would closed, despite having a confirmed booking, suggest management is not what it might be....suggest you call and confirm your booking before you go.....

The concept, which is quite common in NZ, is to get a few dishes to share between the party. One thing I didn't like was how the different dishes come when ready; I would've have rather have the starters come together and then the mains dishes come together, as it's difficult to know how much you've ordered. The food was... More

Second time here for us and did not disappoint. Table was ready for us, having booked online and got an e-mail confirmation. Margaritas were heavenly and the food was delicious. The service was perfect, Andy from Scunthorpe ( amazing, no body ever admits coming from Scunthorpe,) you were a legend. We will be back

I shared three dishes and a dessert with my partner at this top restaurant and was delighted by the experience. It was one of the best Thai resturants I have been too with complex flavours that are fresh and tasty. We had excellent service and loved the Central Otago Rockburn Chardonnay. I recommend this place for a great night out!

Excellent restaurant although possibly not the restaurant for those that like traditional food. Tasty food well presented with an excellent selection of cocktails, gins and Malt Whisky's. Very helpful staff.

An amazing mix of flavour, ambience, and staff who want to help you have a great evening, truly perfect. Would recommend for a smart casual evening out.

Came with a group of 10, seated in a room on the first floor that had a very steep staircase (no good if you're fat or impaired in anyway!!). The room was small making it very difficult to change seats during the evening to talk to someone else. Two sittings, one at 6.30pm and one at 8.30pm. We chose the... More
