Bazza's Steakhouse 

Cuisine: Family, Steakhouse, A La Carte, Burgers


AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! Went here just this past Saturday for my fiances birthday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were friendly and very attentive. Nothing was too difficult. Steaks, cooked to perfection! Adrian really knows what he’s doing behind the grill, moist, flavoursome…”secret” basting sauce is sooo tasty! They were even generous enough to have a “Ricochet” shot on the house for the birthday boy. Thanked kindly for our custom by Adrian himself on the way out. Will definitely be returning. A+++++

Der Metz 

Cuisine: German, European


Our group of hungry friends is about to embark on our second “Great Schnitzel Challenge” and I can’t wait. The first time was absolutely awesome! Saying the meals are generous is an understatement, they are huge! The men got on to the challenge of eating ALL of their massive schnitzel while us ladies did our best to get through half! I’d definitely recommend skipping breakfast and lunch before going to dinner here. Great atmosphere, awesome place to dine…can’t wait for our return visit in 2 weeks time!

Bronco's Steak House 

Cuisine: Steakhouse, International


Awesome steak house, you can’t go wrong! We’ve ventured far and wide to find equal quality but the prices are through the roof (I’m looking at you, Angus Steak House!). I love the old fashioned western look…meals are huge and always perfectly cooked.

Buffet House 

Cuisine: European, Buffet, Asian, Seafood


We’ve been a couple of times, the food is nice and hot and the buffet is always well stocked. Restaurant is a little cramped though, maybe too many tables? Both times we’ve been we’ve been seated by another table and had to constantly squeeze past people at the next table to get out and had the same done as they were trying to get out…there’s nothing like someone’s bottom or front rubbing on your back while your eating lol Other than that, it’s value for money :)

Red Elephant Restaurant 

Cuisine: Thai, Asian


We’ve only been once, but it was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! The food was divine, service as awesome and the atmosphere was great. They were VERY busy but still had our meals out to us in record time. Price wise it was a little more than we would normally pay for a dinner out but it was well worth it!

New Flame Restaurant - CLOSED 

Cuisine: A La Carte, Buffet, New Zealand


If I could rate zero stars I would. We turned up, a party of 25 for a social club do. We were seated in the back room, so far away from the actual food we had to walk through the reception area and main entrance to get it! Nothing was labelled, it was all lucky dip. The cavery was a joke…you’d tell the guy what you wanted he’d cut off one slice and put it on your plate then give you the oddest of looks when you asked for more. There was stuff all to choose from and there was very little in the way of dessert. Seeing the empty dessert bar, we asked if they would be re-stocking to which the staff replied “I think we have more jelly and brandy snaps in the fridge”…that was it! Brandy snaps had lost their snap and jelly was like rubber…you would of though 25 people @ $45 per head would have garnered a little bit more effort on the night to make sure they had sufficient volume of food to feed us! Buffet?? PFFT!

Brandy's Cafe & Roasts 

Cuisine: Cafe


The rating says it all…Meh. I’ve experienced better. Meat is nice and relatively fat free, potatoes are very salty and vegetables were undercooked, I don’t mind my peas a bit firm but firm is an understatement. Gravy is flavourless and you don’t get enough of it. We visited with my father in law, he ordered and got a small container of gravy then we proceeded to order and got 1 small container of gravy for 2 meals, when we asked for another we were told that 1 container would be plenty, with that reasoning, 1 container would be far too much for my father in laws 1 meal, right?? We left with no extra gravy, and no desire to return.

Noodle Canteen 

Cuisine: Noodle, Asian, Fast Food


Food is good, I love that it’s all cooked fresh right in front of you…cooking in a wok always amazes me. Only one complaint, a little bit stingy with the vegetables…I always watch as they go along and put everything in the bowl waiting to be cooked…a tong full of this, tong full of that…one brocolli floret…ONE BROCOLLI FLORET? I once saw 2 go in and watched her promptly deport the second illegal brocolli immigrant and put it back!? Two florets of brocolli isn’t going to break the bank! I do enjoy their food though, especially the honey chicken rice so will continue to go back!

Emerald Thai Restaurant 

Cuisine: Thai, Asian


They’re simply the best! Better than all the rest! Chicken and cashew is my absolute fave, yum, yum, yum! Waitresses are so damn polite and on the ball it’s unbelievable. You would never believe it but the chef isn’t even Thai…he’s a kiwi bloke but cooks the most awesome Thai food!

KFC 

Cuisine: Burgers, Fast Food, Chicken


Crap service, stale chips (with little or no seasoning, even when you ask for more), chicken that soaks through the GREASEPROOF paper in the box before you can even get it back to your table to eat. We’ve taken to driving all the way into town, the Quay St restaurant, if we want KFC…you just can’t compare service/food quality between the 2!

Masala Indian Restaurant 

Cuisine: Indian


We’ve been to Masala a couple of times, in my honest opinion it’s not the best. Table for 2, ordered 2 butter chicken with rice and 2 garlic naan bread…naan bread came out cut up and in a ‘communal’ style bowl…there’s nothing like tearing chunks off your own individual naan and eating at your leisure instead of racing my naan loving fiance. Butter chicken sauce is also very, very tomato-y and left me with a severe case of heart burn, I’ve not had this problem anywhere else.

I love New Ruby Restaurant, we don’t go as often as I’d like but I always enjoy it when we do. I love, love, love their garlic prawns. Dessert needs a bit of work but other than that, no complaints!

Domino's Pizza 

Cuisine: Pizza, Fast Food


Without a doubt one of the worst pizza joints around…cheap enough, but you get what you pay for. Excuse the graphic nature of the following comment, but each and every time we have eaten Domino’s we have ended up with a serious guts ache and a terrible case of the runs…be it the oil, the cheese or the meat…who knows, but the end result is always the same!

You can’t beat the Pandemonium…chicken, camembert & cranberry sauce…mmmmmmm! I don’t mind paying the ‘premium’ prices for better quality, there is no competition…suck on that Domino’s!

Punjab Palace 

Cuisine: Indian


Not bad…curry a little on the oily side which you notice if you order as takeaway by the time we get home (less than 3 minutes away) the sauce has already started to seperate but nothing a good stir with garlic naan won’t fix, also cuts of chicken can be a bit grisly, but always speedy service and always give us a good splattering of extra garlic on our naan when we ask :)

Good old ezzys…ALWAYS a good meal, ALWAYS good service…I won’t eat kebabs from anywhere else in Papakura! I could drink the garlic sauce it’s so good, kebabs are stuffed full of meat, salad and sauce. Generous helpings and value for money!
