It was a hit hard to find the restaurant amongst the tropical garden setting, but when we found the entrance a friendly face welcomed us. The friendly and efficient service continued through the meal. Plenty of specials to choose from, plus the regular menu. We chose the chicken curry, and the lamb shank. Both presented simply, and tasted wonderful. Big... More

Last week we booked a large group (around 20) from our local women's chorus, Bella a Capella, for dinner and a surprise Birthday treat. We admit we can be quite discerning about our food and service. Firstly, we were wowed by the food, every single person was very pleased with their scrumptious meal and the presentation of the food was... More

We have dined on multiple occasions at this restaurant. Tucked away in a subtropical garden adjacent to The Stone Store. The food, atmosphere and service are exceptional. It's just the perfect Northland restaurant. Not a bit pretentious, the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and slick. Chef Colin's Thai curries are outstanding. I can honestly say his catch of the day dishes... More
