On behalf of the staff at Gravure Packaging, we would like to thank the Empire Petone for hosting our Christmas party — which was a hit! The environment of the function room was perfect, the staff we’re extremely positive and helpful, and the food was bang on. The Empire accommodated for 30 staff (the majority being meat-hungry males) who all had a three-course meal. I have had positive comments from all staff, and I quote ‘best pot-pie of my life’. I highly recommend The Empire for any function — whether it’s formal or casual. And thanks again to Paul for making everything so, so simple.
