I will pass on to Barry & Whetu that your loved their Murray Gray Beef Steaks. We are so lucky to have Chris Te Rata, the Pounamu carver. His work is strikingly different to others I've seen. Thank you very much for the lovely review.

We pretty much go every weekend for lunch. Great variety of ethnic food which Invercargill lacks. The prices are fair and the food is great. Put aside 20 minutes and go get a bite to eat.

We bought silver beet for my mother in law. I was surprised by the late start hour, a sign at 10:00am said stall holders were still setting up, it's usually almost over at this time in most locations I've been too... What was on sale...More
