My brother gets these fairly regularly as an easy filling roast meal for one or two without cooking. My mum loved the pork crackling and gravy. It's tasty, I'd prefer less meat, (was a bit fatty, too) and more variety in the veges. I had too much potato, kumara root veges and the carrots weren't so young or fresh and... More

Nice selection of roasted meats served with lots of vegetables and a friendly staff. Dine in or takeaway. No frills but completely satisfying!

Nothing like having a nice roast, whilst not like homemade we enjoy the meals on offer here, they are a decent size.

Had the roast pork which was divine. To get pork crackling without having to pay for it was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend.

A very nice "takeaway" roast dinner complete with spuds, pumpkin, kumara, carrots and peas (that aren't mushy). They are consistent in their serving and quality every time. The portions are generous and good value for money. Their roast spuds are particularly nice. The pork roast our favourite of the 3 available (lamb,beef, pork) and their crackling nice and crunchy.

Yummy meat and vegetables and nice staff. The meals are big enough to feed a medium appetite for two meals. Thank you Prime Roast !

It's not quite like mama used to make, but close enough. You get a choice of Chicken, NZ Lamb, Beef and Pork that came with crunchy crackling. It comes with roast potatos,kumara, mixed vege and lashings of Gravy. The vegetables are the let down as they were a frozen mix of carrots peas and corn. But all in all a... More
