Beachcomber Restaurant

Reviewed By Walkhome - Milton Keynes

Booked a celebratory birthday dinner and had requested a quiet table if possible. We were seated away from the hustle and bustle by the window. The food was exceptional and the service was friendly and helpful. And the wait staff even sang 'happy birthday' much to my wife's delight. A great restaurant with well prepared and tasty food and wonderful wait staff.

Bushmans Hut Restaurant

Reviewed By Jess C

Bushmans was about the only place open when we were looking for a late dinner, and we are so glad for that.
They seated our party of 8 with a smile and helped us order.
The food was delicious and came in reasonable time.
If we were in Kaitaia again, we’d return.

Regardless of where you are heading if you fine yourself in or close to Kaitaia, then this is a must, Breakfast, lunch. the choice, vegan, vegetarian, and especially catered for, as well as many other fares, the selection is extensive, and all prepared with fresh local ingredients. The staff are very helpful in helping you have a memorable experience. You could take hours to order, or come back again and again, as I do.

Bayview

Reviewed By 183MaryMack - Roscommon, Ireland

Stayed in Ahipara on 5/08/16, booked a table in the restaurant for that evening. Myself and my daughter and her 6 month old baby arrived at the restaurant, the staff member who greeted us was anything but friendly, she double checked to see if we actually had a reservation then reluctantly agreed we had. Despite the coldness of the staff and their attitude the food was excellent.

Kai Thai Takeaway

Reviewed By BurtBerserk - Pecatu, Indonesia

This unassuming restaurant produces Thai Food of a very high caliber. They are balanced with their sugars (no overdependence on coconut sweetness, for instance) and their spicy options pack a flavorful punch. Noodle dishes arrive at the perfect texture (no overcooking), the beef salad is succulent and juicy, offset by the right amount of tartness and crunch. Generous portion sizes are worth the price.
Also, for cooks, they stock a small but useful collection of Thai ingredients (curry pastes, f/x) by the cash register.
