Tried this resturant japanese food. 4 of us ordered different set meal and gave good reviews. Price very reasonable about NZ$10 for a set meal. Owned by japanese boss. Very japanese style. Please do visit this shop when you are in Dunedin. I do not rem where this shop is .. but its very near Octagon.
Favorite Dish: I wanted to order Japanese tea but boss is very kind when he told us there is free barley/wheat tea and ice water at a corner. helped us to save money!
No service charge and other charges.
On the opposite corner to Cafe Croque-o-dile was a net café and private information centre, with souvenirs, info, tour bookings, coffee and 1 hour internet $5 for the special of the day…. Pity I didn’t find that one first, as I was growing tired of paying $2 for 20 mins at backpackers wherever we went
We did go in here just to check the place out, and the staff seemed super helpful, friendly and nice. From what I can tell, it seemed to be a privately run business, rather than an official town information centre, which was 1 or 2 blocks further down Princes St.
The cafe was in a nice building, typical architecture of the city, very nice inside
and had a little bit French flavour, with Monin coffee syrups on the counter, some French items on the menu, like $6-$9 ea crepes, plus things they called “Croques” which were a bit like oven baked open baguettes) but $8-$9.50 ea so a bit expensive.
Favorite Dish: Coffees mostly all $3 – I found the coffee quite nice indeed.
Outstanding portions and a varied menu in a buffet style for around $7NZ. A tremendous value in meals! Known to locals simply as "Heff's" this South Dunedin icon is one of the landmark pubs of Dunedin. Enjoy the hugely popular meals at the bistro where you are guaranteed a good hearty Kiwi style meal served by friendly staff.
For entertainment, come in almost any night of the week and there will be something on. Regular spots include Karioke on Thursday nights and country artists on most Wednesday nights. There is also a gaming lounge and TAB sports betting facility for those wanting to take a bit of a punt.
Favorite Dish: Pork Roast or Roast Chicken
We chose this hotel for value but we were so surprised at the huge meals they served so we had to order "half serves" and still these were huge.
Favorite Dish: Roast pork, chicken beef or lamb with 7 vegetables...potatoes, peas, corn, carrots, broccol, cabbage, pumpkin with any sauces or gravies you like.
Live Karaoke if you can sing........and there are poker machines if you want to try your luck in a separate games room
Nova was the overall winner of the 2002 Nobilo Wine Group Best Cafe Awards, and the service, food and presentation has not slipped since winning.
The cafe is handily located next to the Dunedin Art Gallery.
You can pop in for a hearty and healthy weekday brekkie/brunch.
Throughout the day, a selection of cafe sandwiches, burgers, light snacks and yummy desserts are available.
Dining at night includes excellent NZ grown fare, such as eye fillet with onion marmalade, scalloped potatoes and red wine jus. All their red meat is organically sourced from Gore. Over the years it has won numerous food and also a barista award. Current chef, Volker Speigel, was trained in Germany and baker Brigette Hudon bakes all the breads and cake.
Favorite Dish: The kiwi breakfast - toasted ciabatta, poached eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and kumara hashbrowns is soo big I couldn't finish it.
Others had: green thai chicken curry, fresh fruit salad with greek youghurt and homemade muesli, and a hamburger with french fries.
All the food lived up to its reputation and I'll definitely be back for more!!
The decor at Thyme Out is interesting - deep purple walls with low lighting, and soft music.
There are 2 rooms downstairs with tables, and another room upstairs.
The food is pacific rim- asian fusion with lots of fresh NZ fruit and veges, and seafood and meat used.
It was a busy post-graduation ceremony night and, unfortunately our table of 6 waited over 30 minutes for entrees, and then another 2 hours for mains. Suffice to say we didn't wait around for dessert!!!
Favorite Dish: The food (when it actually arrived) was great. Maybe service is faster on a quiter evening. Also, of the wine list presented to us, only one-third of the listed wines were available!?!?
The crostini with aioli and pesto, greek salad, pumpkin soup and polenta with chargrilled veges were our entrees of choice. All were presented beautifully and tasted delicious.
For mains: most people went for the salmon fillet, served on a vegetable mash which was divine, but the were noticeable size discrepancies among serving sizes.
All-in-all, delicious food, but wine lists, service and serving sizes need some work.
The Little India restaurant is tucked away down St Andrew St, just off George St. It has a good write up in the Lonely Planet NZ, and is good value. Service is prompt, the decor is bright, and the food is tasty and filling. Prices are very reasonable.
We had an English breakfast in this tiny bar located in the heart of Dunedin: the Octagon!
A nice experience indeed, food was good and service as well.
The bar is also open for lunch and dinner time.
