A great place to go to for a large group and the food was very good and the staff very good as well. It is central in Takapuna and tourists would enjoy it.

Very disappointed. Food too spicy. Poor service. Do not expect to be served cocktail after 7pm Vrlo smo razočarani sa uslugom . Hrana je bila previše začinjena i ljuta. Nemoj te očekivati da će te biti uslužni koktelom posle 9 navečer.
