“Food great, service average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Second visit in a matter of months. First visit was great all round. The service was average this time round, particularly when the bill was being paid. The food made up for it as the seafood chowder was amazing both times.

“My Favourite Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My first experience at Triple 1 Five was for lunch with my son and it was fantastic! I had heard a lot about the restaurant from other people and just had to try it.
The food is just beautiful and the service is excellent! They have a laid back atmosphere while still being professional and they make your visit a dining experience to remember.
Hence, I have been there for dinner and numerous lunches since and plan to go again and again!

“Anniversary Date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Husband and I went to Triple one Five for a quiet celebration of our silver anniversary - 25 years. The meal was fantastic, and the service excellent. Husband had rib eye steak while I had a seafood pasta, plus the spanakopita hors d'oeuvre. We were wrapped in deliciousness. Then to our surprise and pleasure we were brought a fantastic desert, which was kindly created for our anniversary! We were delighted and had just the nicest celebration. We will definitely go back every chance we can.

“great restaurant, they go out of their way to be of help :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We brought a last minute group of 10+ to this restaurant one evening while attending the Altrusa International Convention in Rotorua, and the manager went out of his way to make sure all was good. Everyone definitely enjoyed their meal ... the stone cooking was unusual and yummy. Overall I found alot of the food in NZ, although good, it was bland. Not here!! Would highly recommend this restaurant!!!

“Avoid if you can”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We went as a group to this restaurant. Overall the meals were ok but we felt expensive for what they were apart from the stone grill prices which were standard. The manner of the manager was stressy. Two of our members, who had the same order were unwell overnight, one taken by ambulance to hospital and discharged later. We went back to inform the Manager he may have a problem and were very disappointed with his reaction. Pure defensiveness. Considering our friends have incurred expense ie they cannot drive home, he could have done better
