Tropical ZEN setting in Kerikeri

We had breakfast (3x) lunch (1x) and Dinner (1x) at FOOD. And if they where not closed the sunday evening and the monday we would have come more often ! It starts right when you walk up the ramp to the garden and restaurant. What an atmosphere. You've been in the tropics at once. The service... read more

It's not often in NZ that the first thing I mention is the restaurant service - but this team is great! On top of that my entree was an incredible blend of subtle flavours that made me want to sit there like I was a Masterchef judge tasting spoonfuls very slowly as I tried to discern the flavours. I failed... More

When a restaurant gets great reviews it takes a bit more time to think about it. I agree with the latest comments. Great place, excellent service and great food. I had the fish green curry. At first to sweet but with the separately supplied fantastically fragrant chilli it turned into one of the best green curries I have had. Even... More

A wonderful experience, we had vegetarian dishes and out of this world! Lovely scenery, like being in a tropical forest.

Excellent service, wonderful food and a wonderful ambiance. The food is Asian fusion and there' s so much to choose from. We tried to sample as much as our stomach's would let us and were not disappointed. It was a wonderful night, sitting outside in the garden. Highly recommended.

This cafe/restaurant is in a beautiful sub tropical garden and I can thoroughly recommend a visit. It is open for coffee and lunch during the day as well as for dinner at night, and I had a meal in the evening. The food was excellent. I had a beautifully balanced Thai green curry, crammed with big chunks of very fresh... More

We always enjoy ourselves here, friendly service, great place to relax or explore the gardens, the kids love having adventures while waiting for their meals. Meals are delicious, have tried nearly all! My only feedback would be the kids menu, I'd love to redesign it! For such an amazing foodie place, I feel the kids menu is lacking.

Lovely setting and really nice food. Waitress got our order mixed up but we were in a bit of a rush so not really that stressed, just make sure they get your order clearly. Restaurant is close to Rainbow Falls and is a nice treat post the 1 hour hike there and back.
