“Funky atmosphere but mixed opinions on meal!”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

First night in NZ we went to the holy smoke for supper after it was recommended to us - we loved the atmosphere and were happily chatting to other diners, however we found the steak pricey for what you got. I had the salmon burger and would recommend but my partner had the steak - small and only a few chips in a ramekin. For $57 for two soft drinks and the two main courses, it was a really nice meal out for not much money but my partner did go home a bit hungry!

“something special”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

The food is outstanding, the customer service second to none. We went as a large group ( 26 people staff function ) and they didnt miss a beat.

“Blokes Night Out”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

Our regular monthly blokes night took us to The Holy Smoke this week. Mid week it was pretty quiet with a few others around. The food was very good, the wine and beer lists a bit restrictive. There were only 2 beers on tap and these were boutique brands and some bottled beers, but after a hot Canty Nor wester a nice tap beer was longed for. Service was good and the appetites comfortably filled.
