“Top food and good service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

We ate here on our wedding anniversary. And have been here several times before. Our food was to die for as was the promptness of getting our meal to us. I got the mixed grill which was superb! The only downfall would be thy the person behind the bar needs to learn how to make up simple drinks likes raspberry and lemonade. Part from that 10/10 from us.

“Haloumi to die for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We are not spoilt for choice in Whanganui, but Angora is a nice option. If you're into cheese, order the Haloumi as an entree . . . never fails to please. And the wait staff are just lovely.

“More is not Merrier..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Arriving to a packed restaurant you instantly fear the worst - Especially when the bar maid is looking for your booking and someone else is asking for service at their table - But against my better judgement we stayed. Arriving at 7pm, we didnt get mains until 9pm. Granted, we did have starters (expecting a long wait due to the full house - but 2 hours is abit much) Lucky for us, we had good company to wait with :-) Ordering pizza wasnt an option, as the chef had been "overwhelmed" - We are told as the table next to us receives theirs - But even once the food arrived, it was terrible. My "salad" wasnt washed and had grits of sand in it, everything else was just tasteless, boring and thrown together. The service staff is very young and not able to deal with the pressure, our glasses were not cleared, and no one seemed to be in charge of the floor. Granted it was a busy night - BUT - If you cant handle the number of people, cut down on the number of tables and make service about quality not quanity. I wont be back.

“If you don't try you won't know ........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

After reading previous comments I can understand some of the negativity. Having been to Angora several times it really does depend on what kind of mood the chef is in as to what kind of mood everyone else is in.

Fortunately I have only come across one "bad night" with having to wait forever to be served whilst sitting at our table and then having the wrong order delivered. Sitting in front of the service window you could tell someone was having a "Ramsay" moment no matter what language he was speaking. But in saying this the food I have found to always be of a good standard.... plenty of it; fairly diverse and not too overpriced. The stuffed mushrooms are fantastic for stuffed mushrooms, the lamb melts in your mouth, steaks are a decent size and the wood fired pizzas are YUMMY!

The atmosphere is pleasant and the chairs are really comfy ...

All in all if you hit the chef on a good night it's a great night out.
