“Yum!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

If you love steak, Ainos steakhouse is the best place to go in Invercargill. Staff were awesome, friendly and helpful and the meals were delicious, (the 2-3 course deal is great) Not the newest décor but for Invercargill's oldest restaurant it is comfortable and homely. I definitely recommend this place!

“Magnificent Steaks”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

I strongly suggest the "Lumberjack". When it arrives at your table they pour whiskey over it and light it. Very impressive. My wife loves the three course meal deal. Well worth the money!

“Much much better”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Had been before and it was only ok, but this time there was so much more to enjoy. A really great meal, and we only had two courses. Service was good, and the only complaint that I would have was that myself and the next table had to go to other tables to get the salt shakers as ours were empty. Not much of a draw back considering the beautiful meal.

“Great place for the family event we went to.”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

It was a 60th birthday surprise, and and even greater surprise when the husband told his wife that they were going to renew their wedding vows.

Staff were attentive, but not instrusive. It was a great night.

“OK but not great....”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

After hearing so many good stories about Ainos I finally managed to get down there and was looking forward to visiting the steak house. Unfortunately I wasn't that impressed. For a steak house the steak wasn't done as requested and the sauce that came with it wasn't very nice at all. The vegetables that accompanied it looked like they had been sitting in water for quite a while as they looked pale and lifeless. The decor inside really needs to be updated as some parts look really quite shabby. The service was good and friendly but food wise ,sad to say but I wouldn't go back.
