Indigenous Cuisine

Help us prepare your meal and join us for a traditional ground-cooked Hangi feast!
Our ancestors have been cooking this way for centuries, and their techniques have been passed down generations to ensure we are able to still enjoy the succulent, smoky, earthy flavours of the juicy hangi meats and vegetables slow cooked for you beneath the ground. See the food being set on hot rocks in an earthen pit, before being covered with wet sacks and dirt where it will cook for up to 3 hours! The hangi is not only a mouth-watering buffet feast, but an opportunity for you to join in with us, your hosts, and celebrate during this communal and social feasting event!
