There really are no two ways to say this but, The Lone Star in Rotorua is one cracking and extremely lively place. We were made welcome the moment we entered but were asked to grab a drink from the bar as there were no two person tables available. I ordered up a Steinlager on draught which came in a frosted...

We had three friends visit from Auckland and had an evening meal at Lone star Rotorua. Welcome and service was good , The atmosphere was good although we could not hear each other over the noise (sports TV). Starter was a home baked bread with mussels and garlic butter. Mussels were served to wrong table so we had to wait... More

The service and the lovely smile you get as you enter the desk is great, taken to a choice of table and given your food and drink menus. We ordered garlic bread and was given a nice loaf of bread with a dish of garlic butter on a wooden board, along with a bread knife, yum. The main course was... More

Lone Star isnt as 'Wow' as it used to be. i submitted my feedback to Lone Star directly and got such a lame response. So thought id warn everyone that the price of their food vs quality is slack. Steak is terrible and presentation is not how it used to be. If your wanting a mean steak, i wouldnt waste... More

Lone Star Rotorua, unfortunately gets a mixed review from me. I've been here several times before and this would've been the worst. Our first waitress was great, very and polite, and her timing was perfect. Unfortunately her shift was ending (which she kindly told us another girl would be serving us, we thought this was a nice touch) Unfortunately for... More

We have lived in Rotorua for over 13 years and have never had a poor experience at Indian Star! During this time, we have had 3 children who have always been welcomed with a smile - from babies til pre-teens, and we often take large groups in with not much too much notice!! But we do book! It amazes me... More

Came here with a friend on a busy Sunday night, we were happy to get a nice table next to the window. Staff were all very friendly, especially Max who went out of his way to make sure we were looked after. Great atmosphere and we both loved our meals. After we paid for our meals our night was topped... More

Rawinia was our waitress and her service was great. I really appreciated how she came back to check if we were ok & if we needed anything else. The meal was beautiful & it came out so fast. Compliments to the chef. All around a wonderful evening especially for my first time in your restaurant.

I ordered Grand Angus rib eye and I'm sure they had cut all the meat off just left the fat on it because it was the fattiest steak I have ever had. When I complained I got a 50% discount off my meal. I would rather have a nice steak thanks!! The fish my daughter had tasted like it was... More
