I love this place - it’s my favourite place to eat and a real treat when I go as it’s quite expensive. My last experience there wasn’t great. Obviously set for a busy service the food felt pre-prepared and re-heated. Fire cracker chicken was dry and tough. The eggplant parmigiana was really oily and the polenta chips were tough. Maybe I just struck a bad night as previous dining experiences have been great, but left feeling disappointed.

I had such a beautiful meal I returned again the following night. Both times I was beautifully taken care of as a solo diner, and it was a breeze to find delicious dishes that met my dietary requirements most deliciously and imaginatively. Thank you so much!

A fantastic, warm, friendly evening, the snapper and ceviche in particular were a stand out. If there was one work on, the cocktails could do with a bit of finesse. Thanks Social Kitchen!

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner for our last night in New Plymouth. Very friendly & helpful staff. Food was delicious. Ordered the rolled pork belly to share, along with sides of polenta chips + green beans. The pork was divine with lots of crispy crackling. Finished with the lemon curd cheesecake to share. Wine recommendation was excellent "Don't tell Gary" shiraz. Highly recommend. Will definitely be back on our next visit.
