Plating Up Rotorua

Plating Up - Reviews

Cafe Name - November 2013


The Mud restaurant and cafe 'mystery' reviewers will visit the eateries and experience fully the meals, service and ambiance of the eatery.  Where possible, this will be done as a blind test but Rotorua being Rotorua, this may be difficult in all cases.

Video follow up: Where possible, after our reviewer has completed the task, The Mud will return to interview the staff so diners can learn more about the venue than simply the menu.
