I came here because an extended family member had a birthday. They had gone to a concert at mt smart and were staying nearby. We surprised them by being here. Sixteen of us. I have to be honest. I was not expecting great things. The area is not particularly scenic, the building not pretty... However the food selection on offer... More

Beautiful food. enjoyed our time there. Great Services with waiters clearing our used dishes. Great place to have a group of people. Very warm environment and loved it that we can play our islands songs there.

Yeah barely average !! Food plenty of it but all tasteless. Staff rather condescending. We were patently put in the non maori corner by the door. Not a great experience.

Such a horrible place. Didn't eat much as it was so dirty. The staff seem like they don't want to be there and are not friendly. Would never go back especially at those prices.

Had dinner at this restaurant after a huge day of flying and driving and was really impressed with the food and number of choices on the buffet. Was our 1st taste of dinning out in NZ and must say it was a good start. Was a very popular place full of younger families like us. The only thing we can... More

We were told of this place by a person in the Manukau City Shopping Centre. As all our family were with us and very hungry we thought we would give it a try. BOY were we extremely happy we did. The staff were just so accommodating, as we had not booked, and there were 12 of us. Nothing seemed to... More
