“Excellent .....say no more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

We were in Palmerston North on a golf trip and our organiser had booked us in to Aqaba for an evening meal. He did us proud.....Great wine selection, diverse menu and excellent service. The food was first class and at a very reasonable price. Lovely friendly serving staff

“Very good for lunch and will go again.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I called in here for lunch and we're very surprised.
The food price, quality and speed of service was excellent. The menue was more restaurant standard with a nice range of food available.
The place is much bigger than we thought, nice and clean with a relaxed atmosphere and free open wifi if you need that kind of thing.

Will recommend as a place to go for lunch.

“Pretty Average Food, Rude Waitress”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Haven’t been to the Aqaba for a couple of years so decided to go there yesterday for a family lunch. There were 12 of us dining so we would have given this place a considerable sum of money for all our meals. Our entrees came out with our mains an hour after we ordered and when this was questioned to the young blonde waitress she told us that sometimes entrees are ordered as mains and we should have told the person taking our order that we were wanting the entrees as entrees at the time of ordering. Correct me if I’m wrong but usually entrees are just that – entrees! Anyway apart from that everyone seemed to enjoy their meals, however my was an exception. Their chicken curry was disgusting. Described as a sweet Japanese curry, it was quite the opposite. The chef most possibly got confused between sugar and salt! It was so salty that I don’t even think my dog would have eaten it. What could have been a great lunch was ruined by rude staff and an unappetizing meal!
