We went without a booking a managed to get a table no problem but they were very busy so I think any later and we may have had a wait. Either way, they were happy to seat us without a booking. The food is to die for and such a vibrant atmosphere. Highly highly recommend the chocolate pot for dessert - share between two as it's very rich but worth saving room for! :)
Have been here once and we were double booked accidentally as this place gets busy! However, the staff were happy to accommodate us even though the space was tight and they served us for as long as possible before moving us outside, as the table we were seated in was booked already. The pork bun dish is the winner at this restaurant. I love the concept of putting pork belly into the soft dough - it's soooo good and affordable too!
DELICIOUS food, good cocktails & great staff. Food is full of fresh, fun and tasty flavours and comes very quickly even though restaurant was very busy. Interior is a luxurious, almost Moroccan design, seating comfortable however slightly cramped. Thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience and will definitely return.
Went for valentines day with my partner, what a great dining experience we had.
Great food, we had the lamb ribs which were lathered in delicious rich sauce, the lamb was succulent and melting in my mouth, it was perfect.
We then had duck which was cooked well, and the skin was nice and crispy, however I did enjoy the ribs more.
Service was top notch and we loved the themed uniform worn by waiters and waitresses!
Only downside is the fact that we did not get told it was a shared menu by any staff so we thought we had ordered one main each, then only one came out and there was a bit of confusion but we asked the waiter and he explained the shared menu, and we liked the idea of shared menu.
Solid 4 stars, Based purely on food I would give it a 5 though!
This was an unplanned Sunday night visit, we called and managed to get a reservation for later in the evening. Very glad we took the opportunity and paid the cab fare from our hotel downtown. What a fabulous experience, awesome staff, we just said 'bring us what you would like to be having' - out came dish after dish of gorgeous flavours, complimented by the champagne we suggested they choose. Our waitress was excellent and very knowledgeable regarding what was on offer not only there but around Auckland in general. Excellent upbeat vibe, good music, couldn't fault them on a thing! Can't wait to go back.
