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.

Excellent quality of the steak meal and beautiful presentation. I really enjoyed this meal, the steak was tender and tasty served with lovely fries that were not oily and a really nice salad. The cocktails are also quite tasty. A great place to enjoy a nice meal with family or friends.

This place is one of the many choices at elliot stables. Was drawn by their steak which we saw on other customers' tables 😁. FOOD: Ordered sirloin steak cooked medium and it was cooked perfectly! It was juicy, tender and full of flavour. It came with salad and chips which all went well with the steak. The portion size of... More

Chose this for the chicken tenderloins wrapped in bacon but disappointed at the lack of taste, absolutely zero seasoning and couldn't even taste the bacon. Good quick service, nice fries and salad with the chicken. I should have stuck to my original choice of calamari, will try that next time.

Poor food experience . Asked for medium rare and got rare instead. Portion is just too little for $24 . And worsely the steak isn't even cook properly. Fat was still raw not rendered down. disappointed for the price paid. Steak , rocket salad with mayo drizzled. Fatty steak, and chips

Enjoyed a beautiful meal here at Big Little Grill. We came late around 9pm and they still offered to serve us. We ordered the satay chicken kebabs for starter which had the most amazing satay sauce. I ordered a sirloin steak and it was cooked perfectly and had yummy Kumara chips to compliment. Overall great place to eat and great... More

I had the chicken wrapped in bacon things and friend had a steak. Was pretty good but it says it comes with salad and it is literally mesculin leaves with nothing else and no dressing so not quite what I would call a salad but super reasonable price. Could have done with some kind of sauce for the chicken as... More

We casually discovered Big Little Grill on our way home and decided to have dinner there since the dishes coming out of the busy kitchen were looking delicious. Yes we were caught by the eye. We had a dish of lamb ribs and a steak and they were both very good. The plate was of a decent size but being... More

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
