We shared a selection of starters instead of a getting a main each and were very glad we did. The starter size was perfect for sharing. Some were better than others with the pork belly and the couscous salad being absolute standouts. Staff accommodated our pre-show timing very graciously and expedited dessert so we could enjoy another course before we had to leave.

Sous Vide chicken dish very tasty. Grilled lamb rump was nice, cooked a little more than requested and the bearnaise sauce was a bit bland. Hostess very pleasant.

We started off with the garlic pizza bread which was not as good as expected. But the remaining dishes were really great and overall we are happy with our visit.

I came here a few years ago so this return visit was quite a disappointment. The food was still good - although beware there was no sauce with the gnocchi so it was quite dry. We arrived before 8pm and had our food served just before 9. Water and dessert menus took two requests to come out. We didn't have our dessert on our table until 9.57. Food was good, wait staff were polite enough but your guests should not have to come looking for you and ask for service multiple times or chase up how much longer food would be.

Unbelievably good service - Ana was super-attentive, so very nice, and very friendly. Really impressed with everything. The meals were sublime, and our 10th wedding anniversary was certainly something special to remember!!

Breads selection was excellent, however the mains were over-cooked, especially my wife's salmon. Service was good though.

OUur food was dry and overcooked. It lacked sauce and flavour. I had 2 pork strips(pork belly) that were ovre cooked, dry and chewy. My wife had Ceviche that had big clumps of fish in it. The the Venison Tartare that was covered in vinegar- not pleasant. My lamb from the grill was overcooked, dry and average. If i had to pay full price I would have been disappointed and sent it back.

My birthday dinner for 30 + people was organised by ordering our meals in advance. The idea was to ensure the Chef was prepared to serve dinner on time and for the correct individual. In short, the night was a success and it was a result of great communication and understanding from the Restaurant and Bar manager Mr Adit Chopra. All guests received and enjoyed their meals (from the main menu). Both Anna and Chris were very helpful. i do recommend Novotel Tainui Hamilton Restaurant based a successful birthday dinner with 30 + friends.

Sunday lunch. Staff were v attentive and friendly, food and drink was served quickly. Lunch was delicious and the serving sizes we’re v generous - unless u are v hungry a single main is all u need. Every pleasant spot and a nice sunny Sunday.

Food took a while to come out, but the Lamb Rump was absolutely delicious. My husband had the salmon which was a little in the bland side. Thoroughly enjoyed all the cocktails

The Waiter we had was so polite, friendly and he had such a great sense of humour, he made sure we were well looked after. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We had a pleasant evening and will definitely come back and stay at your beautiful Hotel.

Yummy food and fantastic service. Only criticism is when we ordered the sorted breads and dips there was not enough dips to go with all the bread so needs to be a bigger quantity of dips.
