Great tasting vegetarian food. Choice of cream of tomato soup or Veg. Manchow. Both are very tasty, veg.Manchow is a bit spicy. Honey Chilly potato, dal fry and plain rice to share. Naan bread + main course each. Palak paneer (main) was a winner, even my 7year old daughter loved it. Vegetable fried rice that we ordered as an extra for my son was very nice. Banquette dishes are smaller size, but it should be expected with so many for 2 people. Don't forget a desert each! Great service! Relaxing atmosphere

Joe took us out to the Redwoods with a couple of E-Mountain Bikes and it was wonderful. We're both beginner mountainbikers and we were guided through the different trails, levelling up as we progressed. We covered so many trails, it was amazing. I had a small accident, leaving me with a bruise and torn pants. Our guide was with me within one minute with a first aid kit, and even drove us to the nearby mall to get some new pants so we could continue. Epic service!

A must do trip in Rotorua. Good performance, plenty of food. Feeding eels are so much fun, even for adults. It's a very unique Maori experience compare with other activities I joined before. We actually sat down and had dinner with some staff. Learned a few things about Maori while having dinner and chatting. After dinner we all gathered together around fire in the forest, we shared the stories and sang songs together. I was very grateful that everyone birthday song in three language( English, Maori and Chinese) who was not there but having birthday in the second day. I was allowed to take a video of it to send to him. What a wonderful and special gift. Thank you all.

this is one tour i won’t forget! my husband and i loved this experience from the moment we got welcomed on the premises. pure joy and peace during our visit, from making our own kai, to interacting and learning a thing or two with the kapa haka group to playing a few games that was use to teach the young kids from Left to right back then... you get to enjoy your puku burgers and socialise at the table with others who have book this visit from all around the world. the whole experience was honestly awesome but the one that capture my heart was sitting around the bond fire with the stars shining from above having a real intimate moment, and having the kapa haka sing to you live!!!! i mean their harmonies and vocals were out of this world!!!! i’ll definitely book in a heartbeat
