Good food, needs some better beers on tap. The “hit and miss” refers to food waits, but in their defence no one ever books and they’re all walk ins.

Having heard that new management were in since our last visit in December 2017,we gave the Orana another try. I'm pleased to report that it's improved dramatically :-)
Nice cold beer, friendly staff, lovely pasta & perfectly cooked tender steak. It's worth a try.

Went there to check out the renovations, very nice, lots of room nice area outside hubby had the $10 steak lunch with chips & salad it was much larger that expected cooked rare as requested gave it a 8 out of 10
I had pasta with prawns & tomato $15 good size serve was quite nice thought it had a bit to much sauce but still enjoyable.
Will go back
