This restaurant is part of the Asure Park Motor Lodge. I believe that it is only open for dinner. Our meals were very good and it appeared to be the best choice in town.

What a find. In turangi for one night went to one restaurant.... it was very popular noisy and busy. Jumped on reliable trip advisor and found this. Quiet relaxing and great food. Lamb chop were fantastic. Thanks

We had a very nice dinner here as we were staying at the motel and were tired after a long drive and soak in the nearby hotsprings. Pleasantly surprised by the interior decor. Great friendly service, good food and value (large portions!). Not a destination restaurant but we were very happy and would eat here again if we found ourselves... More

4 of us went for dinner. The garlic bread was tasty.The lamb cutlets were beautifully cooked - 2 others had the chicken breast that too was really tasty & tender. The dessert was disappointing as it was a commercially produced and the cheesecake was still frozen in the middle which was abit disappointing.

Our motel host told us in advance that this restaurant has the habit to serve LARGE portions. Therefore we decided for a shared entree and a main each. My wife had the eye fillet and I couldn't resist the fisherman's basket. Our meal was accompanied by a bottle of Pencarrow Head Chardonnay. After we finished the main we decided to... More

We had starters which was not a good idea; delicious but when we saw the size of our steaks I certainly knew I wasn't going to be able to finish mine. The atmosphere was great, the food was very good and there was a reasonable choice of wines.

We went to this restaurant primarily because we had just completed the Tongariro crossing, this was the closest to where we were staying and we couldn't crawl any further! However, I can definitely recommend it,for quality, service and value for money. Our waitress was excellent - really friendly and helpful. She really couldn't do enough for us. The menu was... More
