Reviewer Rumbon
Food is not !!! good..Overpriced from no-talent chefs..Used to be great about 2 yrs ago but not now..They need to restructure the menu and get some talent in the kitchen..Sorry to sound so harsh but it is true..

We come to this restaurant a lot.The wait staff...and Ashleigh in particular...are extremely good.She will go the extra mile to ensure you are happy with not just the food, but your drinks and the service...even the atmosphere! I would have to say that she is one of the best waitresses we have come across in New Zealand.We went there again tonight and it was her night off.I thought maybe we should go somewhere else until our waiter greeted us as we entered.We found out his name was Jeremy and I think it was his 4th or 5th night working there.He could have just stood there and we would have been happy lol!! He was a bit nervous but he more than made up for that with his good looks.His service was amazing and he continually came to our table to make sure everything was satisfactory and to ask if we needed anything else.We could not have been happier and even spoke to the manager about the quality if his wait staff!! The prices are on the higher side but the food is generally of a high standard and the wait staff make you feel more than comfortable.We highly recommend this place!!

Went to this bar today when i was in the area, fish was not fresh, when asked by the waiter if my meal was alright, i explained my fish was not fresh, and showed him the clour of it which was brown,
then he said sorry about that we will bring you a fresh piece, he then took away the old piece of my plate, which in itself was strange as if your unsatisifeid about your meal most places will replace your meal with a fresh one.

The waiter talked to the bars manager, (I assume who was the person standing behind the bar), few mintues passed and then a new piece of fish was supplied which was marginally better than the first bit but along way from fresh.

Then they both seemed intent on making sure i could not talk to them, so i left the bar.

I normally don't write reviews though I'm getting sick of restaurants getting away with eating fish that is not fresh, and should not be served to customers, if its not fresh dont serve it as simple as that.

I will not return to this bar again and recommend if your in the area try other bars before even contemplating eating here.

Agree beer was only good item, though at $10.70 a pint its hardly worth drinking at this pub either.

I found the atmosphere quite nice, I wouldn't recommend here for a sit down meal, as I found it all overpriced. And the food fairly ordinary.

However in saying that if you there for a beer, try to accompany it with the Buffalo wings, they are delicious and come with this yum blue cheese sauce, would highly recommend this!

Excellent fast service! fantastic fresh seafood used for the stonegrill I had. A little bit overpriced but still pleased with what I ordered. Will definitely dine here again.

Reviewer angie2bg
the only good part of our experience at Celsius was the beer, can't stuff that up..!!!we ordered chicken burger, = bland, cold,hardly any ingredients just pathetic. the chinese takeaway could do a better burger than them, and for $18 total joke . they need to go to burger fuel to see what people are getting for half their price.. !~!~!!! half the chips were brown and uneatable .Beef burger was not much better, bland & cold my partner was going hard on the salt n pepper to try and get some taste.im guessing the manager saw us looking at our food in disgust and came over to ask how things were going, i usually don't say if I'm unhappy but this was a joke.. she took one of the burgers off the bill.sad things was it was our anniversary lunch, and came along way to go.. won't bother next time, and have told our friends who live near not to go either.. the place stunk of fish to top it off.. Celsius is maybe a good place to go for a beer and pool, not for the food.

I have been a regular at Celsius for years and thought it was about time I shared the little gem that is Celsius. A friend and I went for lunch on the weekend, and yet again were impressed with how friendly and professional the staff were and how fantastic the food was. There is always a realxed and friendly atmosphere at Celsius and I love going there for lunch, dinner or drinks after work. A great local spot!

Food is good, but service is fair, waitresses must remember there are diners when talking amongst themselves when swearing etc. Not too impressed. Be a while before I go back again.

Celcius Bar - Be Treated Like a Hollywood Star
When you walk into a bar & the bouncers open the door for you & the staff are friendly & will go that one step further for you that is the start of your night! If you are organising a function then everything will go to clock work!If you want to be treated like an "A" list Hollywood Star then go to "Celsius Bar in Botany". Ask for Gareth Hookham or KellyJo they are professional and approachable which is esential in this industry ... well done!

We arrived at Celsius With a party of 8 For dinner on Friday the 25th of July.
Aside from the interior of the building and furniture being very run down we had a very enjojable evening, the service was excellent as was the food, we were all very surprised with the quality of the service and our food as we have allways thought that Celsius was just a pub/night club,
Great value for money and Highly recommended

The night begun well with some beautiful Vienna bread & dips, only 2 be left sitting at the table for about 40 minutes waiting on our main meals, while people who arrived well after us got served their meal before us, I WAS FURIOUS when asking the waitress what was up with that, she replied "oh we are serving all tables together" I was like what a joke, we received our meals and my daughter who is 4 ordered KIDS CHEESEBURGER MEAL and the cheeseburger had no cheese in it DUH then to top it off her meat pattie was raw, I took it back and the lady said does she want it cooked right through?? WHAT THE hell a kids meal OF COURSE DUH, they offered a free meal with desert, I said forget it I aint paying for it! The service was pathetic, the wait was just not on and as for their responses, how on earth they operate I WILL NEVER KNOW!!

Reviewer Steve Lewis
Arrived for lunch & the restaurant was 1/4 occupied. Will never go back to celcius again. Coffee was luke warm, Banana smoothie bland, 2 Brunch items took over 30 mins to arrive so we cancelled our brunch and left fuming. Not once were we informed of the wait until we inquired about how long it was going to take. Bad service & lacks courtesy. The table of 4 next to us was thinking exactly the same.
