“Hearty pies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

Went there based on trip advisors reviews and wasn't disappointed. Good hearty pies with my steak and cheese containing plenty of both. Good lunch or brunch stop. Hot chips also went down a treat.

“Great pies - a pity they moved off the main street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I miss having them close to where I work. It was a lot easier to just walk to where they were to grab one of there ginormous tummy filling pies for lunch.

Huge, very tasty pies. I had the lamb & mint, hubby had the steak & mushroom. They were the best pies I have tasted.

“Great food - best pies anywhere & a great spot in the sun...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

We have been to Kristy's a number of times and the service never varies - all staff are very friendly and approachable. All food is great but the pies are the best. The Mac pie (macarroni cheese), steack & mushroom are great but you also have to try the Kwiw pie...a meal in a pie.

Nice and relaxed atmosphere, rustic look and feel to the place with lots of history, old time tools and pics from the Raetihi area. Great stuff and well done Kristy.

For a pie lover this is absolutely awsome - one pie is as good as a meal.
