It was cold and wet in Kaikoura and we were advised to go to Tuti's restaurant for a meal which we did. The atmosphere and food were excellent as was the service. Would recommend this restaurant to anybody. Great Indonesian-New Zealand blend of food for all the family. Very busy place.

This very popular Indonesian Restaurant has a family atmosphere and excellent food. We had the Yellow curry, Chicken Satay and Fish and chips. All meals were delicious and satisfying. The service was great. Make sure you book in advance so you don't

Great food. The Laska was great. Serving sizes were generous and well flavoured. It did get a bit cold in the resturant so it would've been nice to have the heater up a bit more.
