We had an excellent meal, and a charming waitress. My panko crumbed orange roughy was exceptional, and my husband enjoyed a huge t-bone steak..

We found this restaurant by luck, as we were driving around Turangi looking for a place for our dinner. By taking a wrong turning we discovered the Turing Motor Lodge and decided to try their restaurant. What a good decision as the dining room was pleasantly busy and was well furnished with good table spacing. We chose the fish &... More

Good food - steaks cooked just how we like them. Not rushed between courses bud did not have to wait for ages for service. Cosey atmosphere inside the restaurant when the weather was very windy outside.

This is the place for simple food and a quiet dinner. My orange roughy fish was well cooked and served with delicious vegetables. My daughters lamb cutlets were a bit overdone. When we finished the meal our waitress cleared the table and we sat waiting for the bill which never arrived. Eventually I asked another waitress where to pay and... More

By the time we could get the (sole) waitress's... More
