“Not as good as last time.”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

When booked, asked for a window table. Sat elsewhere then front of house staff must have read request so moved us to a partially set table which we eventually had to ask for the rest of the setting for. entrees and mains came out for 6 of us in dribs and drabs. Young table staff were very nice but appeared to not have had table service training as food came at you from all directions. Had to ask for another round of drinks and had to tell staff what previous round of drinks were, a couple of times.

Food was ok but certainly not what we had experienced here before. Hopefully just an off day?

“Get there early.....”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Very good food, good service and friendly. Booking almost essential or at least sensible on weekends. we waited a fairly long time for our food but to be fair the restaurant was packed. When the food came it was good, very good but next time we will (a) book an earlier time (b) avoid Saturday night.

“Very good”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

My wife and I had dinner here over the Easter break. Scallops to start were delicious, but no need for any chillies in the sauce. The Turkish mixed grill was nice, but completely spoiled by the presence of a pot of a hideous spicy sauce the temperature of the sun! I don't understand why this was served with the dish other than to increase the sale of refreshments. Ordered a yogurt accompanyment for the mixed grill and this sorted the main out, but disappointingly was charged for it. Recommend and would visit again, but watch out for the nasty sauce.

“Great place, great food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were in Wanganui for one night and found this resturant through trip advisor and also reccommended by our motel. Huge selection of meals, we were after something lighter as we had been living on resturant meals for the last few days. We had pizza and salads. The pizzas were huge, so we could have been recommeded to share. However great place and atmosphere. Nice, friendly staff - the chef came out to ask if our meals were ok - it was a quiet night. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.
