I’ve always been weary of going into restaurants that are located inside a shopping mall, especially Westfields. In other countries, you can expect some level of quality if a restaurant or café is inside a mall but in New Zealand its not always the case. However, every now and again you do get surprised by your assumptions and Moa’s Nest did just that. I’ve walked this restaurant/café for years but I had a Westfield voucher that needed using and I got the best meal in a shopping mall one can hope for. I had their Lamb Shank special which cost only $15 and it was far better than I expected! Will be back for more if I go back to shopping at Westfield St Lukes. A great restaurant for a good catch up or a private date.
A little slow to greet but we happy to seat us as it was not full at all. They should highlight the specials on their blackboard otherwise I would not have known about it if someone else pointed it out. I changed my order just 5 minutes after seeing the specials and they were more than happy to do so.
Considering there’s so much competition in the mall and a food court down the escalator. They are competitive and charge the right amount for the food and ambience.
As mentioned before I’m so pessimistic when it comes to restaurant food inside malls but Moa’s nest provided the goods. I got the Lamb Shank and my goodness it was an absolute steal. I originally was going to order a lamb burger but I’m glad I didn’t. The Lamb Shank was cooked just right and the mash potato was the right soft and fluffy consistency.
