“Great Entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Matariki is a great night out. We weren't sure what to expect, but it was good fun.

Lots of singing, dancing, audience participation and food. The food was pretty average (cooked in very modern hangi) lots of food though. I also felt that some of the entertainers were a bit bored (they have done the performance a million times), just observation. From memory it was around $45.00 - $50.00 each, good entertainment, average food in my opinion.

It was very entertaining, and gave a real cultural insight into Maori traditions. Good value and really great food too.

“A fun time with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We didn't really know what to expect but we thought we would give it a try. It turned out that the staff was friendly and provided good service. The entertainment was fun and included funny audience participation. It was fun to see friends being silly as part of the entertainment. The food was average and there was plenty of it. You shouldn't go away hungry. All in all we had a good time. Glad we went.

“Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Our friends had previously visited other similar cultural venues but claimed this as absolutely the best. The staff, all family members, were outstanding, the compere hilarious, the food fantastic and so plentiful, the moonlight canoe arrival awesome and the cultural presentation highly entertaining and exciting. Go! Go! Go!
