Friendly staff, unfortunately not very attentive, whilst them seem to try hard, missed the basics of service. Would deliver a drink, but not clear plates, bought tea, but no cup. Asked how mains were and if we would like dessert, however 20 minutes later we had to go find staff to order and ask for our plates to be cleared despite the restaurant being relatively empty. Food was very nice and came out quickly, staff were friendly, restaurant was clean.
Friendly service, food was reasonably tasty, lacked presentation. Ordered a trim flat white , was terrible. Dining room was standard hotel breakfast/ lunch dining room, pleasant but ordinary.
Rawe ngā kai - beautiful kai and great service
Wonderful service, thank you to the staff!
Food was okay but salads were a little lacking and plates in the wrong area to use. However service was great
Great place, great service!
Great food and service! Definitely value for money. Will back to try the rest of the menu
Nice Meals and good service.
Went for lunch and were the only customers there. Food was good and and value for money.
The food was not up to the standard it should have been for the prices charged. It was ok but I have eaten the same quality if not better and paid a lot less. The chips were cold( they were replaced free of charge) and the creme brulee was not quite right as we ordered 3 and 2 were cold and one was warm so not sure what was going on there. The wine was a ridiculous price for a glass.
Lovely staff and excellent service. lovely meal. thankyou
Lovely dinner, it was superb! Definitely be back.
Great service. Friendly staff. Nice tacos and baos. The tempura vege dish was the highlight (VERY NICE and unexpected). The vege pastry dish was good. Fried chicken burger was meh.. fries were nice with two dipping sauces (tomato and some chipotle sauce) I’d go back again.
Enjoyed the eye fillet - beautifully cooked and presented. Staff very helpful and friendly.
Ora has a menu that makes you wish you could order a sample of everything on it rather than having to choose. We highly recommend Ora and will certainly be back again for awesome service and value for money.
The standard of food is always excellent
Great service, good cooking & flavours. Very enjoyable meal.
Good quality food, friendly staff. We will go again.
Food took more than 30 mins to be served. Had to enquire twice about the delay. No apology given when food finally appeared.Service was lacking for us.
What a lovely night out on our anniversary thanks. Food and service was amazing. Thank you.
Great service provided. Food was lovely!
great food and friendly service.Nice dining experience . Small restaurant which is part of sebel hotel.
Booked the place after recommendation from others however it was very disappointing. The service was poor, food took over and hour to get to our table, lamb was dry, Criss cross fries was overdone. We had to ask numerous times regarding our meal. Cheese board was awful.
Ordered the Pork Belly and Rib Eye. Rib Eye was really good. Pork Belly had to be sent back because there was no crackling, the top of the pork was just ‘soft fat’ it hadn’t been grilled. A new piece of pork was cooked and delivered. Although I had finished my Rib Eye by then the Pork Belly was well presented and cooked. Complimentary beverage each for the wait time and inconvenience. Restaurant staff are great. Nice set up and environment. Only other note was that we arrived around 5:30 pm and noticed the kitchen and restaurant staff retrieving frozen food items and walking through the restaurant to the kitchen on several occasions (nuggets, fries etc) which I don’t think was a particularly professional look. Unless they don’t have a service entry through the back part of the kitchen.
Atmosphere and service was wonderful but I couldn’t much say much about the food. I ordered Fish and Chips and fish was very bland.
