Stopped by for an early evening snack-across the street from the Lye Centre. Cool space to people watch. Loved the duck salad and the tropical botanical cocktail. Wish I could have had another one, but was hiking Taranaki the next day.

Eccentric decor but very comfortable set up. Outdoor area (covered) is excellent and they have a fireplace roaring in the winter. Fast and friendly service from professional staff. The multi person share platters are good value and very tasty. Quite upmarket so more than the usual pub food.

To be perfectly honest I am not a great lover of Japanese food, so not really sure why we chose this restaurant! Well it was fantastic and so tasty. We had 4 different dishes between 2 of us and it was just right. Great atmosphere. So, if you don't like Japanese food, give this place a try

We went for dinner with couple of friends and we ate the Baby Chow menu which is each of the items of Yakitori and Kushiage menu. 50 dollars for 4 of us Some of the plates were delicious.. others, very good. However nothing that will blow your mind (from what we ate). Prices are reasonable around $10 for a small... More

Awesome busy place with great atmosphere. Place was packed but they found us a table tucked away on some comfy couches. We ordered loads of small dishes to share the food was delicious!!! Really good service fast with drinks and friendly happy staff. Highly recommend. It's right in town.

Great Pizza and NZ craft beers make this place a winner. Great for all ages and the open atrium makes for a different feel to your normal restaurant. Great range of Pizzas and craft beers but also a good wine list and the prices are very reasonable.

Fantastic!! From the minute you enter you know it's going to be good. Great vibe and staff are attentive without being in your face. The sangria was excellent. Would highly recommend this bar for a drink and possibly a meal. I didn't eat but the tapas and pizzas looked amazing.

This was a quick meal stop for us as we were on our way to Pukekura Park Festival of Lights, but the small amount of time we were there made us determined to come back for more, next time! The dumplings are divine! Chicken, shitake mushrooms, coriander infused parcels of delight! There were others on the menu and I'm sure... More

The food was great but it did take some time to come out. Loved the cocktails as they were different to the normal ones. Had great service other then a bit slow
