“Average place, definitely a lot better places around”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We came here for my Sisters casual graduation dinner/drinks. Everything got off to a good start until they 'mistakenly' double booked us so we had to move into the bar seating area. The service was great however, food was good. A lot better places around to visit though.

“Surprisingly good food for very little money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We took the family to the Gasworks to celebrate my daughters NCEA results - a great time was had by all. Very good food, surprisingly so for what is essentially a 'pub' (albeit a slightly upmarket one in the suburbs), an okay wine selection and reasonable prices.
The service wasn't so impressive - some training might help there.
We started with a platter - beef cheek, chicken wings, ribs etc - and followed by a main each. The boys had the vension burger (pulled vension served on roasted plums and beetroot, in a bun and with salad and fries to accompany). The girls had the fish and chips and chicken burger. The fish and chips were judged very good - huge serving - but the chicken burger was a little dry we were told.
Clearly we over-ordered as we struggled to do justice to the mains after sharing the platter.
With drinks, the bill for four came to $159 which we thought was excellent value for money.
We'd go back again and recommend the Gasworks as a great family restaurant

“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

I've visited Gasworks on several occasions now and it's away been great, good relaxed atmosphere somewhere yo can take kids. The service isn't brilliant but it's also not that bad given how busy they get. I fond the food is excellent and really good value.

If your looking for a bar that inst pretentiousness and want a good feed, then Gas Works is the place to go

“4 out of 5 says it all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

we've eaten here 5 times now.
I had ribs 3 of those times and each time was substandard.
twice I've had steak and each time it hasn't been rare.
The last time was at 10pm at night and we were the only table being served.
Clearly this steakhouse isn't up to scratch.
my wifes burger was ok.
