What manuhiri (guests) are saying
He tino ataahua ki te taonga nei. He pai te hanga ki tou mahi.
Thank you so very much as the taonga has exceeded our expectations. For us it exudes mana and beauty and we feel privileged that it has found it's way to us. It is a 30th birthday present for our son and we know that he will feel the same.
Again thank you for blessing us with this taonga. We will certainly come back to you in the future and will recommend your business to our whanau me nga hoa ma.
Kia haumaru kia kourua me tou whanau hoki.
