“Perfect steak every time”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

I try to eat here at least twice a year & after nearly 15 years of visiting it feels like home, neither the decor or the menu has changed for years & it doesn't matter because everything on the menu is cooked perfectly every time (you have to try their amazing thick garlic sauce on the Steak Diane!) & the staff are so friendly.

Would be a 5 star if they had disabled acess but unfortunately the only entrance is upstairs

“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.
