  • I visited this shop mid afternoon during the week, and the shop was quiet and staffed by one person. I politely enquired as to how much it cost to buy single chocolates. The lady responded rudely that it was very clearly written on the sign and promptly returned to her work with her back to us. The group I was with was shocked at her reaction; she then repeated and said every other customer was able to understand the pricing structure - minimum of four chocolates. I have worked in the hospitality industry and this is not how to treat potential customers. It would not be difficult to explain "unfortunately we only offer chocolates four or more," or to have divided the price to sell individuals. I give two stars because the chocolate did indeed look to be of good quality, but the service was terribly rude. I have been in New Zealand for one year and this does not reflect Kiwi hospitality, not impressed.
  • Expensive, but a bit frustrating to find that there was a minimum (from memory 3 or 4) number you could buy. Reasonable tasting.
