michelle 4 years ago Holy...toledo!!! This hang lunch is off this planet...it is the most tastiest food I have EVER had. The night before I had actually had a hang dinner at another cultural attraction and it did not come close to the taste this hangi lunch had. Supposedly the way it is good with the steam from the geysers etc, gives it a different flavour to the traditional method of cooking a hangi. Sitting my the geysers and eating this lunch was such an awesome experience. We even got to witness the maori pray which was quite special. I really enjoyed this experience.
