“Relaxed and Funky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Had dinner here on a Saturday evening.
Lovely food, great free wifi and loved the singer.
We did one of the share plates and wished we had brought a doggy bag as there was so much food! Nice to see some spicy stuff included.

“Popular place for a light meals and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

This place is tucked into the backyard of an indoor restaurant. Very comfortable feel. They offer light meals. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It seemed that lots of the locals came there for after work cocktails.

“You must try the Universal Platter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I had the one of the best meals in NZ when I triend the Universal Platter at the Astro Lounge. It comes with a vast range of snacks for all kinds of tastes. Perfect for sharing. We were in 4 people and is was the ideal plate for us who were interested in trying different kinds of food in NZ.

The Universal Platter comes with fries, chicken wings with salsa, Cheese filled chilies, Calamari with tartare and tom sauce, battered fish with tartare sauce, Pinto bean dip and tortilla chips, warmed marinated olives, Smoked haloumi with sundried tomatoes and Falafel Grilled chickpea fritter.

AMAZING COMBINATION.

We haven´t tryed other meals but this one was the best!
