Great Vegetarian dinner! 3 Course Vegetarian Banquette for 2 People - Steam Indian Restaurant

Great tasting vegetarian food. Choice of cream of tomato soup or Veg. Manchow. Both are very tasty, veg.Manchow is a bit spicy. Honey Chilly potato, dal fry and plain rice to share. Naan bread + main course each. Palak paneer (main) was a winner, even my 7year old daughter loved it. Vegetable fried rice that we ordered as an extra for my son was very nice. Banquette dishes are smaller size, but it should be expected with so many for 2 people. Don't forget a desert each! Great service! Relaxing atmosphere

Great ride through the Redwood forest. The high quality Focus eMTB’s are the best way to experience as many trails as possible. The ride is tailored to your riding ability. Thijs proved a great guide and also provided us with photos of our ride. I would definitely recommend this tour

Joe took us out to the Redwoods with a couple of E-Mountain Bikes and it was wonderful. We're both beginner mountainbikers and we were guided through the different trails, levelling up as we progressed. We covered so many trails, it was amazing. I had a small accident, leaving me with a bruise and torn pants. Our guide was with me within one minute with a first aid kit, and even drove us to the nearby mall to get some new pants so we could continue. Epic service!

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our Maori experience. It was entertaining, educational and fascinating. The people were great and clearly put their all into providing an engaging experience to everyone who attends. The food was delicious and there was plenty for everyone.

All the perfomance are beyond my expectations. Detail of explaination on each activities make people understand more. Meaning of crafts at canoe, face and body well delivered by all of the staff in their own way. Even though at the beginning its quite scary during the warrrior dance because you can't smile but it's really worth it. Lady drive (KEA 🚌) make your journey before and after performance more enjoyable 🤗for her humorous and spontaneous song make all the passengers sing 🎶 along. Lovely. Love ❤️ it and recommended to all. Kia Ora
