About The Lula Inn

A south-Pacific eatery sitting right on the water, The Lula Inn has made waves with their relaxed vibe and iconic location. The neon signs and flora decor will have you feeling on island time, as will their bottomless brunch service. The menu focuses on the delicate flavours of the south-Pacific, intertwined with Kiwi classics such as their brûlée banana bread with whipped mascarpone.

The folks are friendly & _the good times just keep-on-keeping-on.

So settle in & while-away some island time. Enjoy the ebb & flow of craft beers, gin cheers, eats, treats & chats. And then, as the sun sets & darkness falls, when it all gets a bit louder, a lot livelier & much dancier — stay on & stay late.

The prawn dumplings were the same as the ones we buy from the supermarket, I reccomend having in-house hand made dumplings for the price. Food was OK but in general needed more flavor. Fries were average. Drinks were good.

Overall we had a great experience at Lula inn. The only advice I would give, is to turn the music down slightly during dinner hours as it makes it difficult to talk and hear it each other. After 9pm when Lulas turns into a club is when the volume should be increased :)

We had a great time. Unfortunately there was old lipstick on one of our glasses and a hair in my food. A bigger choice of food with bottomless brunch would make it better.

Kia Ora Debbie, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. Glad you enjoyed the bottomless brunch, we do apologize for the lipstick on the glass and the hair, I do wish our team informed me so I could have rectified the situation for you and made sure your experience was the 10/10 Lulas one we know our customers expect. We hope to see you again to show you the Lulas experience. Love Lula X
