I might be a bit biased as I've worked here now for over a year. When you love your job you give it five stars yes? A great little 'locals' bar where we like you to feel a little piece of home away home and find great conversation or just a quiet moment alone with your thoughts while you do the washing (laundromat next door). Check out the 6pm daily quiz reading. Happy hour. Adam's mixology. Ska and sizzle Monday night's and of course, the world's smallest stage bringing you local music. Grab a bite to eat from our snack menu or order takeaway in from one of our tasty neighbours. And for those of us who still partake, there's a smoking courtyard (weather permitting). See More

What a great little surprise package at the bar of KOT and sincerely the venue is good too, with comradely locals spicing up the slender fit-out making it impossible not to make new friends. The room is like an oasis of delicious carbon monoxide and the eager Sunday entertainers are only tone deaf, making up for limited talent () with dashing hair and loose morals. The venue is indeed an endangered formula which is what makes it so good. Stay true KOT. See More

Blame Erin Kelly.
I grew up a little on the Friendly Islands & King Tapa'ahou Tupou IV's daughter Pilolevu was my cub scout leader.
This place is a wonderful den of iniquity to a band of intelligent m...iscreants who have very little to do with Tonga but who made me welcome. Enter at your own risk. Mālō Mālō 'aupito See More

It was ok. I ordered my Hendricks Gin and they got no cucumber to go with it. Wasn't a big fuss but they said they never stock it. If I was paying for a good drink, I want make sure it comes with the ...right condiments. See More

The girrrrrls and I were pleasantly surprised... although somewhat deceiving by the lilliputian entrance, the ambience, patronage and illustrious charm of the owner won us over!

A local bar with an eclectic bunch of friendly story tellers apart from the owner who's a grinch. But a sexy one.

Deceivingly bigger than you think from the tiny shopfront. And the interior is very cool. Loved it. Will be back for sure. Thanks for existing!

Merry Christmas. Bar will be open from 3pm, I have ham, salads and rum balls. No die hard because the missus left the laptop in her bar and I can’t get the movie on a usb stick.

Good afternoon Tongwoodians, the bbq season is upon us and the renovations out back have produced a lovely new bbq pit. To mark the end of Movember, we’ll be taking donations throughout the evening for local participants. Should be a fun night, even if the weather gods are predicting otherwise. Indoor seating available and the good bites disappear quickly, so get in early. Kicks off from 5:30pm, Thursday November 30.

Shannon is grounded. I keep finding pieces of foil and matches everywhere.

Lunch is coming along beautifully. The bar is open, the big screen is active and the drinks are refreshingly chilled. Come on down! We’ll be running a few sweeps soon too.

I want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. Your contributions to the Las Vegas shootings victims has been incredible. We’ve managed over $240 for those facing high medical bills at the hands of an insane piece of shit.
