I went back to kiwiyo the other day to take my son there as a treat even though I told myself I would never go back after my first experience. I must say, they have totally improved with the toppings, thank god but still this is not real frozen yogurt. I’m from the states and grew up eating frozen yogurt and this is a cheap, wanna be, icy, tasteless version! The different flavours do not even taste like what they are supposed to and it is way over priced. Yogurt story in the city is real frozen yogurt, go there it better yet just go a couple doors down to movenpick! Get it right kiwi yo or don’t call it frozen yogurt!
We went here for lunch today and were disappointed. The woman recommended the fish taco so we got one. It came out covered in mayo, literally drenched in mayo. I took one bite and the fish was cold inside, not warm. We told her and without asking if we wanted a new one she took it and brought it back hot. Not because they made a new one but because they put it in the microwave! Sorry but hot mayo is disgusting, and really grossed us out, we didn’t even take another bite. Besides the fish taco, the enchiladas were just ok nothing special. It’s no wonder the place was empty at lunchtime! We will never go back!
We first went to Blue Elephant as we had purchased a voucher deal. Our first experience was lovely. We were seated and assisted quickly with very friendly service (possibly one of the owners). Everything from the moment we sat down until the moment we left was absolutely marvelous. The food was by far the best Thai food in Auckland, let alone NZ. Being from the US, we have been looking for an authentic Thai restaurant and are so happy that we finally found it! The food was delicious and the experience was even better. We have since been back and it was yet again wonderful. This is the only Thai restaurant to eat at in Auckland unless you are looking for non-authentic, rush you out the door service. Can’t wait to go back this week!
