“Great service”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We recently dined here and had a great time. We were served by Hannah who was great. She was attentive and happy to go out of her way. Food is always good with generous servings also.

“Okay so our group was late but!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Did you need to keep us waiting as long as you did? We were long past being hungry by the time we all (15) got seated. Anyway the service was great and so was the awesome food. Definitely 5 star Kai here.

Hey thanks very much for taking the time to give us the feedback you have. I'm sorry if it seemed to take a long time before we got you sat but generally what we try to do is wait for everyone to arrive before getting you seated. Then at least you're all dining together at the same time. I'm chuffed everything else was fantastic for you all. Thanks Again.

“Tasty meals and good service”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We were told to try lone star while staying in Rotorua if we wanted a good steak. We weren't disappointed.

Service was wonderful. We arrived before the kitchen had opened but were welcomed by our waitress and seated. Drinks ordered and delivered very promptly, as well as a high chair for our youngest and colouring supplies for our 2.5 year old. Also took our meal order and made sure it was put straight in to be started once the kitchen opened as she realised with 2 young children we wouldn't want to be having a long, drawn out dinner.

Kids meals were very reasonably priced and great value. Our 2 boys shared one between them and there was plenty.

The steak was delicious. Well cooked to my liking and a nice, tender meat. The coleslaw served with it was really good. My only complaint was that it needed more of the sauce served with it. My husband had the ribs and enjoyed them, though he too thought more sauce was needed. The serving was huge and he couldn't finish his meal.

A very family friendly restaurant with a nice atmosphere. A little noisy, but to be expected in a place like this.

I'm thrilled you and the family enjoyed your time with us. We love having kids in here and figure if we can be the place where kids want to go, Mums and Dads will take them. It does make it a little rowdy at times as you would have experienced but during the school holidays its to be expected I guess. Thanks very much for the nice feedback you've given and hope you'll be back soon.
