Lovely good food. Steak was cooked to perfection! Had to have mine well done as I am pregnant but it was still so tender and juicy. Staff were great and helpful but weren't constantly asking if everything was ok (which I really like- good balance). Love the decor too! Really nice date night.

Nice hidden gem for Henderson. Food was great - very well presented. Hubby loved his Teriyaki Sirloin steak and my Surf and Turf was amazing! Restaurant has a great vibe - yes pub like but cool, clean and family friendly and customer service was great! Would recommend to others and will definitely visit again.

Absolutely loved our time here at Zoo Eatery & Lounge. Food was amazing, tasted great and the dishes were presented so well - a lot of attention to detail. Customer service was top line too, all staff were so lovely and very accommodating. The environment was the icing on the cake, my kids enjoyed all the little details around the restaurant.

I am sorry to say this but the old was atrocious. The menu has changed dramatically so we had a very limited menu to choose from. The food portions are miniscule. Our steaks were served with a tablespoon of some sort of sauce and three tiny slices of kumera. Nothing else. The kids chose the burger of the week and it consisted of a stale bun and lamb slices so tough and chewy my ten year old was unable to eat it. He actually burst into tears it was so inedible. Bar mustard and some limp lettuce there was nothing else in the burger. My eldest son said the lettuce was the best part as it only came with four chips on the side.
I haven't actually got anything good to say, the coffee was ok. The cider and fanta was nice as it came from a bottle. The restaurant was cold and heating wasn't turned on until we went and turned it on. Staff were not that happy to be there. If we hadn't had the first table voucher we would have walked out when the meals were placed in front of us.
We won't ever be returning and I'm still angry we had to go to another restaurant afterwards to get some actual dinner.

We had a great time visiting zoo! My 6 year old enjoyed the kids meal including a burger and fries plus a oreo shake. They provided colour pencils and a picture as part of the menu for my son. We had the burger of the day which was a double cheese burger and the cut off the day which was sirloin steak. The food was nice and perfectly cooked. We've dined in the past and the menu has been changed and we're keen to order chicken wings and dumplings which are no longer. Over all though we had a good experience!

Food was poor - steak was overcooked and tough

The food was very nice and very tasty - small portions though so you would need to order a side with your main meal. Unfortunately there was no salt or pepper on the table (I love pepper with everything!) cocktails were nice but way too much ice. Menu is not extensive but nice choices. Over all a lovely dining experience though. I would go back.

The food was the worse I have ever experienced, cauliflower was tough, lamb ribs tough, kumara chips burnt, chicken kebabs were small portions and dry, the best thing about this place sadly was the wine
The food was very slow coming out even though there was only our party and one other there
The staff were ok although thought it was a bit of joke when I complained, the younger member even rolled her eyes
I would never, ever go back but did appreciate that they did not charge us for inedible food

Overall very satisfied. Friendly service, although would've made more from us if we'd been asked if we wanted another drink, and no one came to check we were happy with our meals. The waitress was lovely however. Food came out quickly and was pretty good, I found some of the condiments a strange choice for the meal though (sweet chilli sauce with a meal of mussels with a creamy garlic white wine sauce). Mr 3 was looked after with a picture to colour in and crayons, and his fish and chips looked delicious and fresh.

The food we’ve had was nice and fresh, the service and quick and responsive. Didn’t get 5 star just because of the amount of salt they put in was on a heavy side for my liking, that won’t stop me from going back to this place though.

Food standards have dramatically dropped it was same chef as our previous positive experiences dino burger was fully immersed & deep fried this time it was just the buns steak was mutilated to ensure what I will assume well done that cut it down the middle & served it to us. Potato skins were dry the inside of the kattafir prawns were still raw abit it took 15 mins after asking again for a jug of water will not be returning here again.

The food was amazing, really great flavours in my fish of the day main meal and the potato skins were also delicious. It would have been nice to have a vege option for a burger though. The staff were nice but not overly friendly, so the service was average overall, we ordered drinks but then waited for quite a while to order that we gave up and walked up to the bar to order (and they weren’t that busy either so not sure what the issue was there) - but as the food was great the rest was forgotten.

The place is nice and it has a different decoration than others, the food was good, just a bit of confusion, we order some fish and we got salmon instead, however, we still ate it and tasted really nice, other than that, the people there were really nice and smiling all the time. still happy with the whole picture.

We had a great time at Zoo Eatery celebrating my birthday with my hubby & son. Food was well presented, tasted amazing and timely. The service was friendly, helpful and prompt. We ordered a kids meal with an oreo shake, gyoza and buffalo wings (you can ask for the sauce on the side!) as entrees, and a chicken teryaki burger with fries shared. All the food was amazing however their fries were in fact amazing - they can be a below average tummy filler on a plate however they were hot, fluffy on the inside while crunchy outside. We left full, satisfied and happy! Would definitely be back again and try a different items on the menu!

Initially had high hopes for this place due to to the decor photos on Zomato but was a bit of a let down. Felt like an empty pub with some random furniture and decor around the place. Didn't even realize that there was a gambling section around the back till when I was looking around for the loo.

The food was much better than the service, relatively standard pub food with a few Asian influences. There was only 1 waitress and she was average at best as she had to go back and check with the chef/manager upon multiple questions that we had about the food.

When we finished the food, she didn't come around to clear our table till I had to go speak to her about the dessert menu, in which case to my surprise, she said that there is no dessert menu and you have to choose from the cabinet. The dessert was ok but felt like it's been sitting in the cabinet for a while.

Overall, I wouldn't really recommend the place unless you wanted to try something around Henderson.
