You will never be disappointed when you dine at The Neighbourhood. The meals are generous and divine. On this occasion I had the pate and calamari. Pate superb, great flavour and texture, calamari tender with nice crust and sauces. If you haven't tried the Neighbourhood, you must!!

We had an excellent meal with very friendly, competent and professional service. The food was delicious and well presented and we would not hesitate to come back again. We all had the eye fillet which was done to perfection however there were lots of food choices and we would love to go back and try some of the other choices available. Highly recommended.

10/10 restaurant, best dinner in years
Service was amazing with constant meal checks, drink checks, table clears and resets
Food was infallible on a wide range - steak, fish and ribs (best ribs I’ve had in a long time)
Came as a group of 4 and every one of us can’t wait to come back
Would advise everyone to come here - was a great find in our local neighbourhood

Holy moly this place is a must visit! Such an understated quiet suburban area but wowsers, the ambience, menu and service are wonderful! We shared oysters which were in the most delicious rich, creamy sauce, mains of steak and pork belly were melt in the mouth delicious and we loved the attentive service. Neighbourhood kitchen is a 10/10!

Thanks First Table for introducing our family to the delicious cuisine at Neighbourhood and not to mention at an amazing discounted price! We will be recommending this restaurant to family and friends. Our dinner was outstanding and the service was top-notch! Couldn't ask for more! children were well looked after so we were able to enjoy our meal in a nice, friendly, relaxed, quiet atmosphere. We will definitely be back for more!

Our first time using First Table and our first time for an evening meal at Neighbourhood Beer Kitchen. First Table was an easy to use website and the restaurant contacted us by phone prior to the evening to confirm they had our booking.
Our group had a great experience being welcomed and shown to our reserved table immediately. Our timing coincided with Happy Hour which was pointed out to us. The service throughout was excellent and the meal choices catered for all tastes. The food was delicious and very well presented. A relaxed and cheerful restaurant which we highly recommend. We will certainly be back.

When describing the Neighbourhood Kitchen, we often refer to it as our local. It has a friendly atmosphere and the food is really good - always good. Worth a visit for sure.

Exceptional service and great food. All our needs were taken care of before we even knew we had them! The happy hour house wine (Pinot Noir) was delicious and my seafood chowder was amazing... the kids cleaned out their plates too. Thanks for a great evening, we will be back for sure.

We dined at Neighbourhood Kitchen yesterday evening and we very satisfied with our experience. We were running late and I called to let them know, they were helpful and explained that as long as we placed our order before a certain time this would be OK with the kitchen.
The menu is simple but a nice mixture of appealing food, my Mushroom Risotto was delicious and very creamy. We were amazed at how fast our meals arrived after ordering. My husband is a Chef and he commented on how organised the kitchen seemed to be. The service was very prompt and efficient too.
The restaurant is in a suburb of Tauranga which is a bit out of the way but peaceful and cosy, it would be nice to return in summer and enjoy the outdoor dining area.
The Happy Hour drinks prices are an excellent drawcard too - overall we can recommend.
