Steaks and ribs as most know outside of Asia. Prices are mostly reasonable but some things are highly priced... read more

Friendly place, but overwhelming uninteresting, quite average bar-type food served in an ambience that's only borderline appealing. I doubt that I'll feel compelled to return, though if I were in the neighborhood at meal time I wouldn't have any compunction about doing so.

I had drinks with a few friends after starting our drinks night at the nearby H & J which is also a good venue. We shared some Spicy Nachos and some Chilli Fries which were great with our beers. We had a bit of the "beer munchies". This sports Bar is basically a popular venue for Bikers and Expats to... More

I've been a patron of Handlebar for many years now and its about time I put in a review for one of my favorite hangouts. I always feel at home and relaxed in Handlebar. A cold beer, good company and great music makes for a great Friday/Saturday night out. That's Handlebar for me.

Sunday night is a good time to visit. No music and it's not crowded. Don't be put off by Mad Dog Motorcycle Club - they are good guys who who do charitable projects. We liked chili and so Nachos and Chili Fries were an obvious choice and they were excellent. Staff were polite and efficient. I will go there again.

My husband and I have been here s few times... It's a great place to watch sports and have a beer. You can sit inside or our, there are a lot of TV screens of varying sizes. Even took the kids to watch the All Blacks play. Great food on offer and the staff are very nice.

Was attracted by the BBQ which turned out to be excellent. Local friends raved about the Filipino food especially the Crispy Pata (ignore doctors advice about healthy food - just enjoy!) amazing live bands seem to come here and a wonderful array of characters. Staff very conscientious. Has to be visited. Hard to leave ....
