It looked empty from the outside but was chocka when we went in ... Great to see especially as it is further away from all the other main restaurants.

The food was lovely - not the best we've eaten but by no means the worse. It was tasty!

The servings were generous, the prices reasonable and the service really efficient.

We were even offered (and we accepted) a complimentary dessert - a very yummy lime and coconut cheesecake - delicious!

Would definitely recommend to others.

Our group of four showed up without a booking and were immediately made welcome by the friendly staff. Even though it was very busy they found a table for us and service was quite prompt. The food was delicious, the portions generous and very reasonably priced. The restaurant was walking distance from the park we were staying at and set one street back from the main road made it much quieter than other eateries in Franz Josef.
Definitely worth seeking out and I would definitely eat there again if I ever get back to NZ.

The night we went the place was very busy, but we quickly got a table and the service was super friendly and efficient. The food is an electic mix of Chinese, Indian and Thai, meaning there is something for everyone. Reasonable prices and generous servings, the kids loved it and we left happy

My husband I voted this our favourite restaurant of Franz. Meals were great. We enjoyed spring rolls, edamame, dumplings, chicken and cashews and were impressed with the size of the meals, taste and value for money. Then the dessert came. We were excited to see the cheesecake presented so beautifully and the taste was incredible. We also tried the rice pudding which good too.
