Stunning flavours

This is not the cheapest place to dine out at but the food is really worth it if you want to treat yourself. They specialise in Thai flavours but there are lots of other options on the menu.

Hidden in a side road leadining to the Stone Store & Pear Tree, this tasty abode has alot to offer from pastries to dishes. Ordered a $28 asian tasting plate worth trying: thai fish cakes, spring rolls, marinated lamb, mince beef on chinese spoons, money bags + special sauces - a little bit dear but worth trying!

I have dined here before, and thought I would do the same again. I had a nice lunch and good coffee. I just love the beautiful setting and great service.

I had the seafood chowder and thought it was quite average. But it is located in quite a beautiful setting and the service was good.

If you want to eat fresh fish beautifully cooked look no further than Wharepuke in Kerikeri. Chef and owner Colin also offers fabulous curries. Just love this restaurant.

We popped in for coffee and stayed for lunch, had two helpings of the macadamia tart, it hit the spot, waited for the rain to stop, then walked around the lovely garden The others had soup and salad and loved it as well

We had an amazing meal of aged angus steak, and the pork belly. Wonderful staff. Unfortunately we were too full to sample the dessert menu, but will certainly do this when we return to Kerikeri.

Three of us had lunch there last week whilst staying on holiday in Paihia. The setting was lovely where one can sit inside or amongst beautiful native bush, palms, etc. Friends were most impressed with their Blue Nose fish and I had seafood green curry which I enjoyed. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. The paper napkins were of very... More
