Reviews for Three Leg Frog
by Stephanie H.
30th April 2013
Went here on Sunday night after having it recommend to us by a friend and was extremely let down.
When we were shown to our seat it was up right against the wall leaving myself steering into the wall with my partner to my right. What an awkward start.
When we ordered there was only two other tables in the restaurant. We ordered entrees of spring rolls and rock prawns. After waiting 20mins for them to come out we both started getting a little anxious. The table of four beside us had ordered just before us and were just finishing their entrees whilst we were still waiting for ours. By this stage another four tables had come in and another 10 mins past by. We noticed one of the new tables had got their entrees whilst we were still waiting for ours. And the table of four were now onto mains. Not being very happy at all my partner decided to go up and ask where our food was after now waiting 40mins for our entrees, sure enough our docket was missed. When the food eventually arrived it was tasty. Mains followed 15-20mins after. We never got offered any new drinks or a water top up. Food tasted ok, nothing to rave about and wanting to go back. And to top of off there was a hair in my salad. When mentioned to staff he just stood their stunned about knowing what to do. It would have been nice getting a free drink or desert after all the bad stuff that had happened. overall extremely let down would not recommend to anyone and will not be returning.

We also took a chance…..and failed.
The wine glass was tiny…with a long black stem…a little tacky, but i thought …how bad could this get…
Service was lovely, atmosphere was good, but sorry guys, your mains let you down. I have NEVER been to an Asian restaurant and been served pork in sweet/sour sauce with mashed potatoes AND a side of rice.
The starters of wontons and spring rolls were lovely, and we should have stopped there.

This place was fantastic.
We walked in off the street just before the dinner rush, they seated us. The menu is so diverse and the food was amazing.
The flavors were strong and just beautiful.
A great price range as well. We had the duck, lucky last, it was beyond anything we expected.
All the food was brilliant, not a single complaint, service was flawless.
I would recommend to anyone without hesitation.
And considering my partner was in a Burger and Fries mood, he was blown away as well.
Top of our list for going out.

A nice warm restaurant to go to in the winter with an open fire. Food and atmosphere is satisfactory, although the food differed slightly to what we expected it to be, ie: ingredients were missing etc.
We were over charged, which I had to question twice, but they rectified in the end.
A good place to go for moderately priced quick Chinese meal.

My family and I have enjoyed a number of meals at the Three Leg Frog Restaurant. The meals arrive at the table hot and very tasty.
They cater for the people’s individual ‘spice’ tolerance which is great. The atmosphere has always been warm and friendly and the staff wanting to make our dining experience memorable. We have recommended to all our friends.

I went to this restaurant with 3 other girls as you do on a girls night out . The staff were all lovely and the atmosphere was amazing. The meals all came out really quickly and were delicious. And even if you think you cannot fit in desert you have to – the rich chocolate cake with mascarpone was divine and the white chocolate cheesecake with raspberry was heavenly. We have all decided that we will go back and that we would recommend Three Leg Frog to other people.

Great tasting food with delicious flavours. Totally different from other Chinese restaurants. The food was extremely spicy and hot just like we asked for. Not the usual boring kiwi hot which isn’t hot at all. Will be going there again.

OMG, my partner had tired legs from when we walked around checking which restaurant to eat at. Furnace was very busy and full & Keystone was fairly full and far too noisy. I decided to just go to Three Leg Frog and we walked into it not realising it’s actually a Western form of Chinese Restaurant.
So we ordered and the Steiny Pure tasted nice and then the Chicken Satay sticks were hot but nice except for too much MSG in the peanut sauce. The staff were helpful and polite all during the service.
Finally we got our mains but immediately I said to my partner ‘where are the Green & Red Capsicum that are meant to be in that dish?’ so we asked that of the waitress. They could remake the dish with Green Capsicum or else give us it for half price of the $21 original value so we accepted the discount as preferred.
My $26 main Spicy Lamb in a Garlic Jus with Breadcrumbs and Onions was a basket of battered meat where it was more batter than meat and most pieces of meat you could clearly taste the animal fat in it. I went up to pay for the meal and to complain about my poor main. They must think we are too ignorant to know tastes of meat as the waitress tried to tell me the meat is always carefully trimmed so no fat would be on it and that the taste was probably the starch that mixed with oils etc. I’m not that dumb as I grew up on a farm where we ate lots of REAL meat and I know it’s no use complaining more to someone that can’t be honest by trying to deny facts by use of lies. I felt totally let down and what was a poor meal was made worse by such bad final service of a senior staff member at the till.
We got a card where once we buy 5 meals within 6 months we could get a free beer or glass of wine. Wow how good when the meals here are a lot more expensive yet of a much poorer quality than most of the other Chinese restaurants around town. This is why you will never see Asian families dining at that restaurant.

I’m sure their food is delightful – if you can get in. We made a reservation for four on what turned out to be a busy Friday night, and when we turned up, no one seemed to know who we were, despite the fact one of us had ordered the special duck, of which they only prepare 2 per night. They were jam packed and there was no spare tables for four, although they had larger tables with only two people sitting at them and spare two-seaters. We left, thinking it just wasn’t meant to be, and we won’t hurry back.

Made a reservation to have dinner here Friday night with some friends, when we got there, the place was full except for some tables outside in the rain, the first lady we spoke to didn’t seem to understand what we were saying, the next staff member we spoke to said she could only offer us a table outside or we could try our luck in 40 minutes. We will definitely not be returning here anytime soon.

By far the best “Asian” style restaurant in Hamilton. How far? By streets.
The menu is chock full of wonderful, tasty, mouth watering dishes.
The atmosphere is electric, the wait staff are friendly and accommodating and the food is simply FANTASTIC.
One little point that they could tidy up on a little is when a wine waitress delivers a bottle of wine to your table they shouldn’t just show it to you and then place it, unopened, on the table and walk off. Just need to brush up on that a little I think. Not worth downgrading their stars though as it was a 5-star experience otherwise. We will definitely go back again and again.

My Wife and I went to the 3 Leg Frog for Lunch last Sunday 29th April, can’t say enough about it. Service was great, helpful, pleasant. Food was to die for, best Asian food we have had since we were in Vietnam a couple of years ago. We will be going back and are going to find it hard to look beyond the excellent dishes we both had on our first visit.

Beautiful food without a doubt, shame however that staff seemingly attempt to get you intoxicated, only makes you wonder why.

Coming into the restaurant I was assisted but was I ask if I may sit it went well.
I was carefully attended to and the meals was awesome,chicken succulent & tender, a meal to rave about which I did not expect.
One thing that bothered me was the fly/s constant around while having the meal.
I will recommend this place any time and rate it quite high, very calm and relaxing venue!

Took a gamble and it did not pay off!
The service was below poor and the food was very mediocre. It took 35 mins for our entree to come out and there was only 4 other people in the restaurant. It took another 45 mins for our mains to come! Food was bland lacking authentic flavour. The waitress was too busy talking to other staff instead of asking if we would like another drink!!
Would not recommend at all

This was a shot in the dark that really paid off. We chose it with little thought but truly enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent, the food was amazing and the ambiance allows for fine but relaxed dinning. I intend on coming back for sure.

We had a lovely dinner here. The food was very fresh with great flavours, and in a nice setting. Would recommend it to friends look for a good Chinese dining experience.

Great food, excellent service! Great to learn about the culture they are all extremely welcoming & polite. The platters are beautiful, huge in size and bursting with flavour! You must stop in and try on your way past!
