Not in the $10 to $20 range for price but is for quality. Disappointing. Underdone meal. Took a long time despite not being very busy.

Average food at silly prices. I understand that in a small place like Ohakune that gets a large influx of visitors around ski season that prices might get a bit crazy which is fine. However it is not okay to charge silly prices and then serve food that is substandard and coffee with foreign substances floating in it. I think I'll just shop in New world and cook my own next time!

Where do I start??????

WAY over priced for the food.

Staff are VERY rude and unfriendly. If they dont like you, you dont get the slightest attention unless you like being looked from top-toe then snobbed.

But to top it off for you the customer.

Lets say Health and Safty is not oviously top ranked with them.

THEY have a mouse problem at the moment which I talked to them about. But dont think they care.

Problem is, the mice are getting into the chiller where the food is kept. And every morning when yesterdays food was taken out, mice and had a very busy midnight feast.
But do they throw out the eatten food? No its cut off the BIT that was eatten and they serve you the customer with the rest.

I had also seen mice poo and urine on some of the packaging of foods that were still served or cooked with.

Sooo to conclude. Take your hard earned money somewhere else. And enjoy food that hasnt been spoilt and genuine customer service.
