  • An awesome night-market. We had the privilege to be at the right place at the right time one visit to Rotorua and really enjoyed the live music and mouth-watering foods. Highly recommend visiting if you're in the area!
  • I love these types of markets.. Great food at this one. Started with some pot sticker dumplings, then moved onto a venison burger and southern chicken loaded fries, a variety of meats on a stick, fresh squeezed orange juice and finished with a couple of fancy donuts. Plenty of undercover seating is provided but get in early to find as park somewhere nearby or you will be in for a long but we'll worth it walk - probably ideal after the feast that it ensured
  • I cannot stand markets, I hate them, tons of stuff around that I'd never have any intention of buying. But... This market was soooo much better and I can honestly say I had one of the tastiest curries I've had in years here. Great food and the prices are very competitive! Very happy with my experience here and would love to come back again!
  • Great food for a casual night out. Dumplings a must have, they will have a large que but it won't take too long to get served, it's worth it. Can get difficult to find a seat to eat. Market is mainly dominated by food stalls and not too much else. Has nice vibe under led lights.
  • The night market is a lot of fun. Music the love of food, from all culture of worldwide.
