This restaurant came highly recommended, but the food was fairly average and there was little atmosphere. Overall it was disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it.

We enjoyed our meals and restaurant was very busy. Location was a bit uninspiring and not in the main town area.

I have dined at Tuti's a couple of times now and both times I have loved it. The meals are a descent size, unlike many restaurants these days, and should you select one of the delicious curries like I did you'll find the combination of spicy flavours simply perfect. It totally hits the spot!

We had 2 fish dishes and my husband still can't stop raving about the Whole Flounder.
Service was fine and the prices just like very where else. We would go back just for the Flounder, Yum!

Dined on a Friday evening, very busy but was lucky to get a free table only after waiting 5 minutes. The waitress was sweet and took the time to explain some of the dishes to us. They had a mix choice of Indonesian dishes and kiwi cuisine. We shared the indo prawn curry and chilli mussles, both were delicious and presented beautifully. Nice selection of NZ wine but would've liked to see more choices of aromatics.

Great place, I think it must be one of the newer establishments in town, well done, will highly recommended.
