We liked the look of this place and fancied a take away to our motel room. Whilst looking at menu outside a friendly waiter popped out and encouraged us to the outside buffet counter around the corner. Looked nice and promised a return after a glass of wine in a local bar.

Upon our return we decided on our selection (you may have a number of choices for a fixed price). We asked that the food items be placed in separate containers as we did not want each of our several different flavours piled into two containers. This was REFUSED! I thought maybe there was a language problem and politely repeated my request even offering to pay extra for the containers. Refused! "Boss no agree". Another customer waiting to be served also helped to explain but again we were told could not be done. Hello? Too complicated?

We took our business elsewhere, See comments for Greens Indian and Thai just around the corner.

We had the buffet for $25 ea. The hot food selection is great and because they have so many customers the turnover means the food is refreshed regularly so doesn't have time to get cold. The cold selection of prawns and mussels looks fresh and is displayed nicely and the oysters are just superb! This was 'low season' and we would recommend making a reservation as we were lucky to get a table on the night we went. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant. We've eaten here whenever we've been in the Bay of Islands and we've never been disappointed. This occasion was no exception.

A must do, to have food from here, whilst visiting Paihia.The owners are lovely, and very hospitable. The dim sims, spring rolls are made on the premises. The food is consistently excellent, service very good. If you like oysters, this is the place to come and sample good pacific oysters!

First time here on a trip with my boyfriend, and was very pleased with the great food, great environment and the great service.
Love the oyster and pork ribbs, the food is very fresh and the taste of the food is really outstanding just right.
