We really enjoyed our Thai meals here, a lovely surprise! Really friendly, good service too. We all got our meals "Kiwi Hot", which was just right for our tastebuds. The Thai cooking was better than most we've had in Dunedin.

The Rox Cafe is quaint with great food and excellent service. We found that the lunch menu was quite extensive for a smaller town, and the quality of the food could not be faulted. A great place to relax and enjoy.

Might be on the shady side of the street but one can tell the kitchen people are passionate about their product. One recommends the chocolate iced carrot cake with Mandy making a nice brew to go with it. Would revisit and try something else.

It may be a cafe but restaurant style food prepared with care and skill. The coffee biscuit is certainly a nice individual touch.

I meet friends there for a monthly get together and light lunch, I always find the staff friendly and efficient. Sometimes service is too slow especially if they are short staffed
