Lush amongst the bush

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... read more

Great food and service while dining on the deck by the trees. The prawn and fish curry were fantastic as was the kingfish that my wife ordered and I finished for her.

Absolutely delicious food with great service and charming atmosphere! We had dinner outside amongst the rain forest and fairy lights which was quite romantic. Did get a few sandfly bites tho so you might want to use some insect repellent, altho the restaurant did have some on hand for our use.

Having travelled in Australia and spending a few days in Pahia we came across this amazing place. This was the best meal of our holiday - my husband had the market fish of the day cooked to perfection whilst I started with the roasted beetroot and goats cheese salad followed by a very tender steak sandwich. Our waiter was very... More

This is a wonderful tropical Place, having delicous Thaifood and Cakes. The Coffee is excellent and the Service always in the mood for a lovely Talk. Really a Place we shouldn't miss in the Northland.

The Thai banquet at Wharepuke on Friday nights is one of my favourite eating experiences. I live in Kerikeri and visit here regularly, the food is consistently good

Great menu, service, and ambience. I have never been disappointed in choosing Wharepuke. This includes breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Great place for a quick coffee and cake in the day, a naughty lunch or a relaxing dinner. Everything they do is really good. The sub-tropical garden is great in fine weather.

My number one choice when eating out in Kerikeri with visitors. Food is always outstanding, lots of local ingredients, drinks menu is great and also features local wineries. Simple fusion food, underwhelming decor but situated in awesome sub tropical gardens which you can wander through. Great personable staff. Love it. Only drawback is it is not open on Sundays and...
