This provides a complete list of restaurants etc in the Sylvia Park Mall and it is rather diverse. This would be the best place for groups to go, it is close and there is something for every taste. Sylvia Park is walking distance from Waipuna at an easy 14 minute (1.1 Km) walk to the mall and restaurants, and just a few minutes by car with plenty of parking. Best to book ahead but normally it is fine to just turn up and find what you would like to eat from the dozen or so restaurants.
