Went to this place for lunch on our visit to Paihia and was very impressed by the staff and the food. We ordered some fish and chips and their platter. The chicken kebabs didn't have much taste to them but everything else was delicious. Could not ask for better. Would highly recommend their fish and chips as the serving sizes justify the price. Would definitely come here again

Hi Solidsaks,
Thankyou for your feedback especially about the chicken kebebs. I have had the chef look at different or more spice. Chicken is problematic in that the meat tends towards the bland.
Thankyou again Les

Have been here several times now, was just there recently on very cold wet night, arrived 6 pm and got a table for 2. Noticed it filled up very quickly after we arrived few groups had booked tables. We ordered a $40 platter of ribs and steak skewers, chips a small lettuce salad. Their ribs and sauce are the best! It was delicious and we ate it all, no doggy bag needed. Service VG, atmosphere is great, love going there! Not sure if they do deliverys, i think in warmer weather they have tables out on the sidewalk?

Hello Hinukoa,
Happy you enjoyed and sadly no we we do not do delivery but certainly do takeout and phone orders.
Maybe its something we should look at.

nice food, atmosphere and great staff. My partner didn't like his steak just said it was tasteless. Would go there again on next visit to Paihia.

Hi Lindylu

Good you enjoyed the chicken kebabs and sorry your partner was less than impressed with the steak.
Perhaps the biggest problem a restaurant manager has is satisfying as many tastes as possible.
You just have to make a choice and go with it right or wrong.

Look foward to seeing you again.

Regards Les

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful dinner here. We happened to end up here on a Tuesday where they have a 2 for 1 deal going on one of their rib meals. The meal is normally $20 so you get two for this price. The ribs were succulent and juicy and the sauce was amazing. The entre was very nice also. Calamari cooked very well. The most impressive thing about the place in my opinion was the staff. We truly felt welcome in Paihia because of the staff here. Very well done. See you next week :)
