3rd time visiting little glutton & still enjoy it. The hamburger spring rolls were a surprise & really nice.
We chose not to try the deep fried dessert bao & opted for ice cream from the ice cream spot inside.... wish we'd stuck with the bao! The ice cream was only ok.
Little Glutton is definitely worth a visit.

Outstanding guys. Food is superb. So is service. 3 dishes plus dessert was absolutely satisfying to share between 2.

This was my favourite go to restaurant. Almost a weekly visit. Until this week when I find out they have a new menu and removed all the good things. Calamari was the fav but no longer. Might be time to move on and find somewhere new unfortunately as it used to be the best

We've dined here a few times and this will probably be our last. Once again the wait staff were poor - inattentive and disinterested. No spark.
Changes to menu were not for the better. New Rendang is spicy but lacks flavour. Jungle Curry was also bland. The Wok Fried veggies were really over salted. We missed to of your best dishes from old menu that aren't available now - beef cheek curry and eggplant spring rolls.
The temp in restaurant was ridiculously hot. We left before desserts because it was horrible being in the space so stuffy and warm. No wonder your staff are sleepy.
Gutted with the changes you made.

The service at this restaurant was very disappointing.
Not one smile amongst any of the staff. They were inattentive and made our group seem as though we were an inconvenience.
Hardly a way to create a warm and inviting ambience to paying guests.
They were uninterested in answering the questions we had about how to order as being our first time we were unsure.
The value for money on the starter was very poor and could only be called a rip off.
The majority of the other courses were reasonable value and ok in flavour.
Hardly the exciting vibrant dining experience it should have been and I paid for.

Food was nice but a little overpriced. Not authentic but was still good, although we both felt sluggish after. Service was okay, nothing great. Better places to go in New Plymouth.

No one came to meal check us to realise that one of the meals we had ordered was not good at all. The beef tasted off and our whole table tried it and said that same thing. It took so long before someone actually came over to take our dirty plates away and then we finally got to say about the beef dish. The waitress said the beef was not off but we were not certain. The rest of the food was good as always and the ambience is good too.

Good food. As a 50 year old with strong music tastes, I had to leave pretty much after I had finished eating. Should have gone to Joes Garage. It had to try LittleGlutton’s just once.

Was super hot inside,Would be nice to have more then just a fan going inside. In the end had to sit outside, table was wonky and took along time to get a menu. Wasn’t a great experience. Feels like more of a takeaway restaurant then dine-in.

Hadn't been before and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and so much choice. Would definitely go there again. Sat outside as it was a beautiful evening, it was a little noisy but it is on the main street. Would recommend if you enjoy tapas.

Good spot this with great food. Service was excellent, Kade (I think it was who served us) was great. He asked the right questions & made some recommendations, which were outstanding for our group. He is a very good advertisement for the restaurant, in being knowledgable re the menu & treating customers as friends. Very impressed.

The service from a lovely male waiter was impeccable. His humor and interpersonal skills made a welcoming distraction to the crowded cafe. I must commend his ability to quickly find a table for 5 rather than for 3. An error that I made while booking the table. The food was affordable and delicious and the aesthetics and design of space is unique! I would offer the recommendation that the drinks are to be asked and served long before the food as a tip while we wait on our mains (plus it means that customers are more likely to order another round of drinks once the food has arrived). Over all this place brings culture and great food to New Plymouth! Well done!

Came here with the family including young children. Great choice, our 2 year old loved the noodles.
Food delicious, and the Ice-cream pop up from Left Coast Gelato was a delicious treat at the end
Thanks Guys, we’ll be back

Really skinny tables make it hard for a large group. Tables can't be moved either so was quite squishy. It was okay but probably better for takeaways unless there's only a small group. Watermelon margaritas were great and so were the cheeseburger spring rolls. The burgers were quite small for the price and don't come with fries.

I’d ordered little glutton a few times before and loved it! But this time was not so good, the noodles were so salty that it was barely edible, I gagged when I tried them. I ordered the fish burger and it was absolutely covered in pickles, top and bottom bun despite it not being mentioned on the menu, and my bun was also very soggy I think due to the lettuce, it was just not a very enjoyable meal :(

Great ambience love the choice of music. Yummy food. Every meal was amazing. Great service.
Our food was not too long a wait. Two of us enjoyed a little taste of your creamy Joe's sorbet. Very tasty and a nice small dessert when not a large desert eater.
Only thing was one person ordered the sundae with a flake in the it and turned up without a flake, upon asking turned out the flakes had run out. Would have been nice to have been told when ordering or offered a replacement topping, which they did after being asked.
Thanks!

Ordered too much food then unfortunately I FORGOT my takeaways. Gin lemon sushi the best but get a driver.
A little expensive but still love the prawns & prawn toast.
