Service was atrocious. Have never encountered such a rude person in the food industry in 5 months of being in NZ. She made no attempt to even try to explain what the food options avail in the display cabinet were. When I asked which options...More

We went to try this place out as it was near our hotel, we walked in and the place was deserted and looked a little like a backpackers canteen at best. I can’t speak for the food as we didn’t even try it, but if...More

We went for family pizza and were disappointed. Pizzas were cooked to order but one was only just cooked and the other still raw in the middle. There are plenty of toppings but given the price not great value.
