Fed the whole family of four and had a few drinks for $59 which looking back may have been a mistake at the till. But the service was friendly and food good. Was busy though, we waited 45 mins after ordering. Shows how popular it is mind you!

Came over from Nelson for lunch and was not disappointed, Excellent food and coffee. Had the hashbrowns and greens and my partner the pesto pizza. Both of us couldn't stop saying how delicious everything was. Despite being busy, service was very prompt and friendly. Coffee was exceptional. Would go back in a heart beat :)

The Dangerous Kitchen in Takaka is a neat place where locals and tourists meet. It has high quality food and reasonable prices. Very friendly staff is adding to the positive experience. I can highly recommend that place.

This was our go to restaurant for the week we spent in the area. The food was delicious, great staff, and the play area for the kids out back allowed us to really relax.

My husband and I stopped twice at Dangerous Kitchen in as many days. The first time for a quick coffee, occasion for which we adventured in by chance; the second time for lunch, this time a planned stop, as we had seen some of their pizza in the display cabinet and found them appetizing. Coffee wasn't too bad, but far... More

Arrived mid afternoon so pleased this place was open! Unlike some other cafes in town. Cabinet food was really nice and the coffee was good and strong. Next time I'd go for a pizza - they looked fab. Unfortunately the place was busy and we didn't have a lot of time to wait for one.

We ate here twice whilst in Takaka recently. The salmon pizza is delicious as are a couple of others that we tried. Great coffee too. Definitely worth a visit.
