A group of four of us all got a lunch time meal, the lamb kebabs were absolutely amazing as was the lamb burger, If you want to try New Zealand's finest lamb cooked to perfection I / We would highly recommend dining here, the other meals were great as well.

Wonderful Scotch filet and a tasty lamb leg platter on a Friday night. Wait for food was reasonable. Side salad and chips were very good. Good value - $60, including a couple of soft drinks.

The placed visited for a lunch. My steak was too salty, no choice of sauces, the sides are quite limited and..average. However my husband liked his steak, prepared differently though. After several steak restaurants in New Zealand we know better places.

Ordered drinks and a steak here and service was good and the steak perfectly cooked. Only negative was that the Sav was not cold and should have been in the fridge a tad longer (and I specifically asked about if cold).

Reasonably priced and very good quality food. The beef and lamb leg were tender and well- marinated. They offer good salads too, in place of the carbs that accompany the meats.

The grill is sited inside Elliott Stables, that aside we went in just as in opened and ordered our food, that was not long coming. So we did not have to wait that long. But I understand it does get busy as the office blocks empty after work. Food and value was pretty good. Staff were polite.

Went here to have a decent steak and was not disappointed. Well cooked, flavoursome and accompanied by a nice salad and fries. Dined early but there was lots of activity already due to there being a number of dinner options within this building.

Located in Elliott Stables, BLG has some stiff competition but came up trumps with a very nice and cheap lunchtime menu. The open lamb sandwich with fries was just $12, and very filling it was, too. Friendly and speedy service. Would definitely recommend for a quick lunch or relaxing evening meal.

Our main style of cooking is Charcoal Grill. Using this method of cooking along with our signature basting sauce, which takes more than 28 hours to prepare, creating a flavour unlike anything you have ever experienced.

The combination of smoke from the charcoal, when infused with our basting sauce, creates an aroma that will have you wanting for more.

At Big Little Grill, we use the very best of New Zealand meats. Our food is seriously delicious and tender.

We hope that you will come dine with us and share this amazing experience
