    The 7 Bar: Stonegrill Steak

    by salisbury3933 Written Mar 28, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    7 Bar is for the most part a pub, however it does have a restaurant section, and I really enjoyed the stonegrill steaks.

    It is quite seldom these days that I get out for a drink, however this time my wife and I went out to have a meal there. A decent sized steak can be had for $20 with sides, and drinks are never too expensive. Worth visiting if you are in UH.

    I've been here thrice now, and enjoy the food and the reasonable prices.

    Update Jan 2014, paid this place a visit after quite a few years. The tandoori is as good as ever, and the prices are still reasonable for a mains. Really enjoyed the tandoori platter we had.

    Favorite Dish: This place seems to be really good at Tandoori dishes. My favourites are the tandoori chicken wings and tandoori mushrooms.

    Art of Pizza: Good pizza and Steak

    This is a very popular little place on Main Street, busy with both people dining in and takeaways.

    It does some good pizza, excellent steaks, and you can wash down your meal with some local craft beer. Portion sizes are generous, and the owner does his best to make you feel at home.

    Recommended.

    It does get pretty busy, so reservations are recommended.

    Thai House Express: Top Value Thai

    by salisbury3933 Written May 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had an excellent and good value meal at this restaurant. They don't have a liquor licence, so I won't ever go there for an evening meal, but the lunch I had there was fantastic, and good value at $13.50 for a mains.

    A good option.

    Yatra: Great value, great taste

    by salisbury3933 Updated Apr 25, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Upper Hutt has no shortage of Indian restaurants, however my meal at Yatra was possibly the best Indian meal I have had in NZ at least, and it was excellent value.

    The location itself is a little bit unlikely really, not being in the centre of town, but being in a pretty residential area, it is a good option for locals, in my case the restaurant being 5 minutes walk from my house.

    Excellent food, excellent service. I totally recommend this restaurant.

    Buttercup bakery: Awesome coffee and bakery

    by salisbury3933 Updated Apr 9, 2013

    Smoothie, and Flat white

    Good coffee and excellent food. The best cafe/bakery in Upper Hutt.

    Hot cross buns are a specialty there, and their hot cross buns do well in national competitions.

    Now that I am back in Upper Hutt, it's great to see that nothing has changed and that Buttercup Bakery is as good as ever.

    UPDATE: April 2013. This cafe seems to have closed. A great shame.

    Curryland: Good Indian at Broadway

    by salisbury3933 Written Dec 7, 2012

    This restaurant is about 1km from the city centre, and is very close to the Hawk's Inn Motel so a good option for people staying there.

    It's a smallish family run restaurant with good, reasonably priced food and drinks. Not a bad option and they do takeaways as well.

    Nasi Goreng and Lamb Madras
    1 more image

    This place is pretty good and the service the last time we went there was excellent. Food portions are a good size and good value for money. We had a great meal out.

    The lunch special for $8 is excellent value, and I totally recommend it.

    They do both Indian and Malaysian food, although the Indian menu is more extensive than the Malaysian one.

    Elke's: Great German in UH

    by salisbury3933 Written Sep 22, 2012

    Upper Hutt has a number of restaurants, but this is the only European option of note, and I thoroughly recommend it.

    The restaurant is owned by a German, and is authentic with good and well presented food with plenty in the way of volume. All the beer is imported German stuff of a high quality.

    Greatly enjoyed.

    Traditional Thai: Excellent Thai cuisine

    by salisbury3933 Updated Sep 7, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place does excellent Thai food, and I've been there numerous times. They have just got their liquor licence which is a bonus.

    The price is good, and the taste is good. Plenty of variety on the menu as well. Recommended, although I think the owners have rested on their laurels a bit in recent times.

    Little India: More Indian

    by salisbury3933 Updated Jul 28, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Little India is a welcome addition to the Upper Hutt dining scene, and offers good quality Indian fare at reasonable prices. Much recommended.

    Lunch from $11 with rice and naan accompanying a main dish.

    For dinner for 2 with drinks it cost us around $100 which is not too bad, although possibly a bit on the expensive side for Upper Hutt.

    Short Straw Cafe: Don't draw the short straw

    by salisbury3933 Written Mar 18, 2006

    Short Straw Cafe

    This particular cafe is actually built out of straw, hence the name, but it is an interesting, family friendly place to visit in the countryside.

    There's a large play area for kids, and the coffee and food are pretty good as well. Recommended.

    Not too bad allround, with good food in good quantities. The service itself was a bit all over the place, but I went home full, having had a good meal.

    China City: Good Chinese fare

    The interior of China City

    China City is a good value restaurant with the full range of Chinese cuisine at a reasonable price. The quality of each dish is excellent.
    I would recommend it as a good place to have a meal in UH.
