Review of River Run

River Run
Ranked #2 of 3 Restaurants in Mokau

Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 March 2017

This was a convenient stopping point travelling both north and south.

It's a fairly ordinary (very) small town cafe, but the coffee was decent, the service was friendly and prompt, there are a good number of tables to sit outside, and the morning tea scones were great.

We popped in here on our way back from Hobbiton Movie Set and ate around 5:30pm as our usual stops were closed at 4pm.

We had excellent service and the food was very good!

Great spot when on your way back to New Plymouth from the North!

We weren't sure if we could get to eat in as it was so busy & the weather was so bad! Toasted sandwiches & hot chips to share were ordered. Both arrived quick, one on whole grain & one white bread, but it didn't matter. Chips were crunchy & delicious. Overall an easy stop for a quick bite to eat.. typical kiwi fast food

Don't bother stopping in this crappy place! We stopped here five years ago and it was quite nice, but we were so disappointed this time around. The staff member who served us had a dirty shirt and looked like he'd just got out of bed. The food was unattractive. The cafe was unattractive and needed a good clean. And worse were the chips we ordered, as nothing else appealed, we had to throw them out as they tasted disgusting!! Mokau was an ideal time for us to stop on our trip from Cambridge to New Plymouth, but we won't be stopping here again. Even the public toilets were revolting!

Staff were very friendly. The food is pretty ordinary and what you'd expect from a takeaway of this type and the coffee was OK. But the whole place really needs a good clean. The ceiling fan and the light fittings in the inside seating area appear not to have been cleaned since they were installed - covered in fly spots and grease (cringe!). I hope this wasn't a reflection of the standards in the kitchen.
