What a treat! Wonderful atmosphere. Great selection of meats sauces spices. Watching the cooks was also an experience. Topped off with pancakes and icecream - perfect finish. Note to self - dont eat for at least 5 hours prior to going, eat slower and chew!! Thanks Team wonderful experience through and through

“Awesome food at a good price!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I was unsure what to think of the place when I was first told about it but it was one of my favourite meals in all of NZ!! I just loved the fact you could have as much meat drowned in whatever sauces, oils you chose to and the have someone cook it for you as you watched on!!

“Great value for money”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

2nd visit to Gengy's in Rotorua. Really nice food - select your own meat, vege, spices, oils and sauces and then it gets cooked by the bbq chefs while you watch. Tastes lovely and of course it's so fresh. The kids love it, especially the ice cream bar and pancakes. Would visit again.

“OK, but parts of meal not as good as it used to be.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We ate here tonight with friends. We haven't been to Gengys for quite a while now and parts of meal weren't as good as previous visit. Salad bar was not very nice at all, very disappointing. In fact 2 of the salads were inedible, and I noticed several other diners were leaving same items on their plates. Meat selection etc was still very good, and pancakes were GREAT! Tables were being cleared very quickly, and staff very pleasant.

“Went back for seconds ...”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this place after cycling into Rotorua and liked it so much we went back for a second night. Everything about this place ( even the food) is what you make it as you basically put together what you want and they cook it. We loved it, great value. Don't overlook the salad and dessert bar. Yum. May not be for those who just want a prepared menu as you do need to accept what you put together may taste very average.
