My family loved the takeaways we ordered. I rang in an order and it was ready for collection on time 45 minutes later. We all like something different especially the degree of hotness and everyone was really enjoyed their meals

I was both surprised and impressed. A nice mix of classical and more contemporary items e.g. venison curry and cashew salad. Very fast service. It was a bit too pricy but that’s Wanaka.
