Went for dinner here with a few friends, the friends from Auckland had their dog therefore we sat outside under the heater which wasn't to bad. The staff were kind enough to give something to the dog. We order a couple of pizzas as a main with chips but the chips came out with the starter. The cocktail was weak... More

I have dined here several times with family & I love the duck spring rolls & the stone grill.The large stone grill comes with coleslaw & chunky potatoes & the small grill just comes with coleslaw which is plenty but you can ordered a mixed grill, beef, chicken or lamb. All value for money to me & pretty yummy.

We really feel this place has the potential to be a great establishment. The interior is fabulous with numerous indoor & outdoor seating areas to allow for a wide range of clientele needs. I was dining with my kids & it was suggested by the waitress that we sit at a bench table outside of the main dining room &... More

I happened along this restaurant because it was Easter weekend and one of the few places not charging a 15% holiday tax. I was very pleased with the experience! Friendly staff and even better food. You order at the bar and then they bring your food out to you. I paid $18 (NZD) for a huge pile of chicken wings,... More

The resturant is nice and clean with lots of out door seating. Didnt find the indoor seating comfortable. Food was nice enough but small. I had the pumpkin and ricotta bake and although it was nice enough, it was way over priced for what it was. I had heard good things about the place but I was left disappointed.

Seventeen of us visited for an evening meal on a Sunday night. The Good Home is made up of many rooms and kind of does feel like your home with lots of nooks and crannies and modern yet homely decor. It has a beautiful outdoor dining area with outdoor fire overlooking the Huatoki stream which would be perfect on a... More

I ordered the open steak sandwich, but it had a huge thick piece of bread to cover the tiny bit of steak I got. I thought an Open steak sandwich should be open. I did not order a burger! The Pork belly was rather small, but the other meals were ok. Nothing to write home about. If the waiter or... More

This is a large restaurant bar broken into numerous rooms, It was very sparsly occupied so we felt quite alone till we found a wall TV so we could watch some sports. The menu was fine as was the food.
