Interesting menu, great location, buzzy atmosphere, hard to fault - deducted a star as the tables are a little small but that's all. Will definitely be taking the kiwi relos here next time.

The Bach Eatery, is a fun, fast & fresh concept with a little kiwi twist. Our dishes are entree serving size designed to share. The Bach is small and only seats approx 35 people, it does get noisy because everyone is loving the food and having a great old time. There is a mixture of high stools and communal tables with a few tables outside on King Street. No seating is guaranteed but we do our best to accomodate.
