“Getting better......”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

We've been here a few times. This time we went mid week, and were not disapointed.
Nice selection of wines, my wife had an Italian merlot...very good. We both had the steak, and it was awesome...

They appear to have simplified the menu, and they have a new Chef.

Service was relaxed, unhurried and timely.

“Arguably the best in Titirangi”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

We always enjoy going to Takahe usually for a coffee or lunch and have often recommended it to others . Last night we went as a family group of seven for dinner and had a wonderful evening. Between us we just about covered the menu with meat, chicken, fish and seafood dishes and they were all without exception excellent - well presented, tasty and substantial. The breast of chicken brushed with herbs and served on mash and with a peanut/coleslaw salad was one of the best mains I have had anywhere in a long time. Neither the menu nor the wines list is extensive but that for me is a plus. The staff were pleasant and courteous and the service was good.

“Pleasant place to eat with good food”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

The restaurant is reasonably small and has a good selection on the menu. The food was lovely and the entree and main was more than enough to satisfy us, we just could not eat a dessert if we wanted to. They have a good selection of wines, not too much to confuse but enough of a selection.
