Ive been there a couple of times, and never disappointed me. Good coffee, good pizza and a wide selection of cabinet food. Slightly pricy, but its pretty remote and they have to make most of their money in one season i suppose.

Bold, interesting and stretching to a shady garden. Covers everything from snacks to interesting food combinations, taking in craft beer along the way.

Cool little cafe in the middle of the Takaka main street. Hillariously funny handpainted murals on the walls. Food was also very excellent and the staff very friendly.

Such great, homemade pizza. Thanks for having so many vegetarian options we could choose from! We stopped in twice, on our way in and out of Takata for breakfast and dinner.

our family of three dropped by here on a Monday evening for dinner. A bit cold - until they closed the front door to stop the breeze blowing through. But otherwise excellent. Great staff, a large menu - pizzas, mex, organic stuff - great choice...More

We had lunch here and sat outside in the back garden area. The food was very good, homemade pizza with a quinoa-based salad on the side. Good, friendly service as well.

Visited during a brief stay in Takaka. Place was busy and warm, food was diverse and our dishes were tasty and generous. The falafel salad was delicious and the pizza also up to scratch. Thanks

We had dinner here one night recently and ordered a large pizza with 2 different toppings, a smoked salmon one and a vegetarian one. They were both very tasty and very generous amounts.

Amazing selection of food on offer to suit all dietary requirement. I do feel that it is slightly overpriced so maybe not the best place if you are on a Budget. I doubt you would be disappointed though. I visit every year on my Golden...More

Are they open right through winter? We're planning a trip to Takaka in Aug or Sept and don't want to get there and find that Dangerous Kitchen is closed.
