Nice and quick in terms of ordering and delivery. Great and friendly service. There were lots of options including for the kids. And if desired not that spicy.

The dinner quality was just similar to $10 Chinese takeaway, although the price was all about $25-$35. The attitude of staffs was quite nice but the old guy (seems owner) was very unpleasant. He made mistakes for my reservation and I asked him for correction politely but he was upset and never apologize. He was just avoiding me and never... More

Very nice place, clean and tidy. However the food is just average quality for a restaurant. Maybe the chief was too busy to prepare dinner for about 15 guests, so the chicken was dry and tasteless.

Great friendly service and delicious food. A group of us from Make-A-Wish were there last month after delivering a wish in Kerikeri. Annette was wonderful and made sure we were all looked after. It was much appreciated after a very full on day, : )

We were served by May (Mae) who was friendly and efficient with a good sense of humour.It was my birthday and the Restaurant surprised me with an "on the house" dessert which was delicious. We have been here before, the prices are good and so is the food.

My family and I always visit this restaurant when we come to Paihia and the service and food has always been outstanding. On this visit however we found the food not up to their usual standard. Don't get me wrong... it was still delicious but just seemed a little 'flat' . The service was wonderful as usual.

Hi Beth K Thank you for the feedback. No we have not had a change in chef. I will bring you comments to the kitchen's attention to rectify the situation. I suppose sometimes things don't always go according to plan. Thank you for dining with us and we look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards Jo and Ted More
