Good place to enjoy a beer and a meal, across the street from the beach. Varied menu and good prices.

“Best Experience”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I arrived in the small town of Kaikoura with my family. we had an enjoyable day, whale watching, fishing and then went for a spectacular walk around the Penninsula. At the end of the day we ended up at Tuti's Restaurant. We ordered our Entree and then our Mains. i ordered the Chicken Curry and my wife had the Beef Curry and then my son had the Prawn Satay. My first taste of the Curry was just unforgettable. The wide range of different flavours in my mouth was just delightful.
I continued eating and i just couldn't stop. My wife raved about her curry and my son loved it. We then ordered our desert which was well presented and was just excellent. I asked one of the beautiful waitresses if i could thank the Chef for making my day. The Chef was lovely and her food was tremendous. I would like to say that this restaurant is highly recommended and that is one of the best or even the best restaurant i have been to.

What a great restaurant! The food was delicious and the service was superb! Everything we ordered looked and tasted beautiful! The beef curry is a must try and the brownie dessert was to die for!

We order chilli fish, beef curry, prawn curry, crayfish, lamb shank, satay and other dishes. Followed up with brownies and ice cream. Compliments to the chef as she obviously has a great palate for asian and western cuisine. Atmosphere was very condusive for a great nite out!
