The whole experience was very disappointing from start to finish.
The traditional Maori greeting was poorly managed so that people at the back had little idea of what was happening.
The best part of the evening was the singing and dancing which was performed.
The meal was dreadful. If this was meant to be traditional Maori food – we had no idea they ate pasta, coleslaw and Pavlova !!!! It was more like a works canteen than a traditional Maori feast.
As mentioned elsewhere, the mediocre wine was extremely expensive.
After the meal there was a sing song which was cringingly awful.
The return to the hotel was a nightmare with the coach driver going round and round roundabouts while singing “she’ll be coming round the mountain”
Having read some good reports about Hangi on Trip Advisor, we were looking forward to the evening but we came away feeling well and truly taken for a ride.
