Warm the soul with our pick of the best restaurant quality pies

In a time when we all need a little encasing in warmth and comfort, the takeaway gods from our favourite eateries are feeding our souls just what they crave. There’s nothing more heart warming than tucking into a good old fashioned pie. So take advantage of this rare opportunity to enjoy restaurant quality pies that we guarantee will do more for your wellbeing than those daily 5kms you’ve become a slave to.

Widely acclaimed for their sensational fish pie, filled with NZ’s finest seafood and finished with a creamy potato top, Ostro has led the charge on restaurant quality pies since it first opened. And if seafood is not your thing, the braised beef pie with red wine braised beef, bacon and mushroom with a pastry top is equally as compelling. Each pie serves four people.
