“Top Flight Service and Food”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

For vegetarians, this restaurant is a dream. Indian, Thai, Chinese: every dish seemed to be available in a vegetarian option. Service was great as well. We came on the recommendation of our lodging staff but returned because of the quality.

“Good food, great service!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Had a lovely meal here last week. Not too sure what the previous post is about as I had the sweet n sour pork and it was just about the best I've ever eaten. Well worth the money and I'll definitely be going back.

“Worst restaraunt in Franz Josef”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Ordered a sweet n sour pork for my daughter. What a joke. Cook must have got confused and we were served up a dish that resembled Pork crumbed snitchell in pink soup...disgusting..The rice(anyone can cook rice)was hard crunchy an uneatable (left over from the evening before perhaps)If the owner put as much effort into serving up acceptable food as what the put into the décor of the establishment then our experience would have been memorable for the right reason. Where do these people get of charging $19.00 for a main that is 65%hard rice 25% salad and 10% of what you actually requested. As a local I am fortunate that an innovative fantastic Asian Fusion Restaurant/Bar called 88 has opened recently. Delicious menu, great service and a vibrant atmosphere, not a wooden barrel, exposed beam or an old Speight's poster anywhere. Good luck to you Kingcrap.

“Very good asian food and courteous service.”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

My wife and I dined at King Tiger last week and had a great meal. They serve both Thai and Indian dishes. According to the manager they have separate chefs for the two cuisines. The lamb vindaloo was as good as any I have eaten at the best Indian restaurants in NY. My wife had a green curry tofu dish which was the equal of any Thai restaurant's preparation. The prices were very modest and the service was attentive and courteous. I doubt there is a better eating place in Franz Josef or the rest of the south island. The few complaints listed above mystify me. We had a "very good" dining experience.
