When we arrived at Gengys, the restaurant was thriving. Two waitresses who greeted myself and my partner were lovely. Because we'd never dined there before one of them gave us the low down of how you make a meal. The service was great however not once did they come to our table to offer us any drinks, not even water. Other than that, great food!

Been to several in the group in Auckland for large work dos and have to say I wasn't expecting much (they are very tired locations up there). NP was utterly different.
The location is new and it looked great. Hope they keep it that way. Great for large groups and the only one you can complain to if you don't like the taste is yourself lol.
Lovely fresh veges and raw meat to mix and match with oils and sauces to then have it cooked in front of you in moments. Great experience for kids to watch as well as adults.
Basic tables/chairs, basic decor, but nicely done and comfortable. Like that they have suggestions of combinations of food for certain tastes on the wall too.
Great service by friendly people and handled the split bill extremely easily.
One thing though - the top of the servery needs a daily wipedown - even if that means you need to re-write the names of the ingredients on it daily also, it was a little greasy which detracted from the fab fresh food.

Gengys is very reasonably priced for the delicious food on offer. Staff were exceptionally friendly. A great idea to have pancakes, syrups and ice-creams for dessert! Will be back - soon!

We've eaten here once my husband loved it I thought it was good, quick & value for money food. There wasn't much of an atmosphere going on and I wouldnt go here on a date but for a quick dine out meal when needed. A tip given to us towards the end of our dinner was to get the chefs to hold some sauce back and throw it on your food right before they serve it because the sauces/flavour often get cooked away from the grilling process.

We thought we'd try it...WOW!
The best meal we've had after 11 years in NZ.
A fantastic meal, it couldn't have been fresher and more delicious, cooked to your own taste, you create your own cooking sauce (helpful tips on the back board), and it's cooked immediately right in front of you.
Freshly cooked pancakes to finish, with selection of ice creams and sauces.
Staff were friendly and efficient, without being intrusive.
Great price, very highly recommended.

I completely agree with the previous reviews, Delicious food at a reasonable price and a large selection to choose from.The staff were smiley and helpful and the place has an excellent ambiance. Could go there every night of the week!

I dined here with my husband and I'd just like to say that the service received was nothing short of stellar. Friendly, welcoming and helpful, the staff ensured that the experience was a great one.
The food was good (of course I'd say that, I picked out all the flavours) and the pancakes and ice-cream were delicious!
Pricewise, it was much cheaper than expected, so all in all, I believe it warrants a return visit :)

Our first time out to a restaurant with the kids (1y & 3y). The staff were awesome and the food was divine. So many options to choose from and at an insanely reasonable price. I look forward to dining there again.
