“Peaceful and Green, decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

I have been visiting the Mukutan frequently over the past years both as resident and visitor, particularly for coffee and lunch, with friends, business relations and alone. Overall food quality is good, but it is not spectacular. It misses a certain refinement but certainly makes for a decent lunch. Staff is friendly and responsive and as a regular guest it always feels like coming home, even after few months of absence. The espresso usually is fine, but sometimes needs re-done. Staff will do without hesitation. The most attractive of the Mukutan is the location: geographically positioned in Upperhill, near the CBD, in a secluded very green area, with relaxing 'waterfall' sounds and lots of trees. You will forget how close you are near the CBD and Waiyaki Highway.
