Great tasting vegetarian food. Choice of cream of tomato soup or Veg. Manchow. Both are very tasty, veg.Manchow is a bit spicy. Honey Chilly potato, dal fry and plain rice to share. Naan bread + main course each. Palak paneer (main) was a winner, even my 7year old daughter loved it. Vegetable fried rice that we ordered as an extra for my son was very nice. Banquette dishes are smaller size, but it should be expected with so many for 2 people. Don't forget a desert each! Great service! Relaxing atmosphere

Joe took us out to the Redwoods with a couple of E-Mountain Bikes and it was wonderful. We're both beginner mountainbikers and we were guided through the different trails, levelling up as we progressed. We covered so many trails, it was amazing. I had a small accident, leaving me with a bruise and torn pants. Our guide was with me within one minute with a first aid kit, and even drove us to the nearby mall to get some new pants so we could continue. Epic service!

Good fun and some very interesting facts on the area. The lakes are beautiful such a shame Lake Rotorua is closed but its good for the lake to get healthy again. Matt was full of jokes and laughs. Highly recommend for NZders to do things while we can enjoy our country and not have the hustle and bussle of overseas tourists and most importantly help nz companies survive for when the world comes knocking!

The tour is in the Mountain Jade shop. Our friendly guide explained about Jade and then we got to see a piece being worked on in the workshop. It was very interesting and worth seeing! Then we got to pick our own generously-sized beautiful pounamu (green stone/Jade) and create a necklace ourselves! There was no pressure to purchase anything but it’s hard to resist all the beautiful offerings around you :) Everyone was super friendly and we learned a lot! Thank you for an amazing experience that I highly recommend to everyone… even at full price it’s a bargain :)

The ambiance was great, very unconventional and good. The staff was very friendly. 4 because the poached eggs were over cooked, not runny at all, in fact was tasting more like hard boiled egg. The hollandaise sauce was very little, overall eggs benne was very dry to eat. The other vegan dish in the photo was awesome and a must try, cant remember its name, but was the only main vegan dish in the menu.
