Beside the Pak n' save. There was a guitarist and sang. I thiught would be a good place to hang out with my husband. Weeks passed, and after church mass, we dropped by. We didnt know what to order. The guy told us about their $5 pizza every Sunday from 7pm onwards. Very cheap, originally $15-$20 . My hubby and I enjoyed the pizza and we ordered another . Taste was really good. Good price for drinks too. Great place to hang out.

I've been to the Helm a couple of times, once for after work drinks and once for Sunday pizza, and have not been disappointed. Such an awesome place, and it's always busy so once you have a table, stick to it! Highly recommended.

We went here upon recommendation from Brian at Stadium Hotel. The food was very good. ..and prices typical of NZ for type of food. Our waitress was excellent in that she was new but was very willing to accommodate some of our "food issues", such as gluten free and vegetarian, and ensured that our experience was great. While I cannot rate this as "excellent", which I think is held for the highest of the high, we loved our food, the spices and tastes were great, and would certainly go again.. .if in the area.

We have eaten here several times and always had a great meal. Can be a tad noisy at times but the food and service make up for it. Will certainly be back again.
