17th July 2011 We ordered the scotch fillet steak and spare ribs mains with a side salad and thoroughly enjoyed our meals, both cooked perfectly. We only had the mains as we were both full after. The hospitality was exceptional, lovely venue. Would visit again and recommend to others.

15th March 2011. We had my husbands 40th birthday at the Little Totara last July and found the service, food and atmosphere absolutely fantastic. We had the party during the day so that our young children could come and were really happy about how well the kids were treated. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for somewhere in Upper Hutt!!!

10th October 2010 .I attended a function there for the first time last night and it was brilliant. The owners (who are also your bar and waiting staff) were very friendly and welcoming (and hard workers!!) The bar itself isn’t huge but it is well laid out and helps create a warm and intimate environment for a reasonably sized group (ours was a group of around 50) The food we had was just finger food (pizza, chicken tenders, samosas etc) but it was all well cooked, delivered hot and tasted great. Overall, the owners run a great little bar and offer excellent service. I thoroughly recommend them for your own birthday party or social gathering.
