Reviews of Project Design International Ltd (PDI)

Armando Varlotta, Owner - Armandos Kitchen Italian Cafe'/ Restaurant

"Due to an unforeseen fire in November 2017, Armando's Kitchen was out of business for over a year but Andrew and his team have managed to deliver in style a new fresh look of Armando's Kitchen.

Andrew and his team worked very hard to delivery in a very small amount of time something I will always be grateful. The new design is fresh clean and very welcoming and all my customers love the NEW Armando's.

Thank you, Andrew and team, I will always be grateful for your dedication and hard work to put my business back up and running again!"


Isaac Scott, Commercial Project Manager - Café Anatolia Group

'After successfully working with Southern Hospitality for a number of years it was only a matter of time before we jumped on board with Project Design International Ltd. We have had the pleasure of working with Andrew Hayward on a number of projects so far and intend to grow our professional relationship with Andrew and Project Design International Ltd as our business grows around the country.

Andrew has worked closely with our company to fully understand our wants and needs and turn these into amazing restaurant spaces. Our meetings with Andrew were effective and drove us forward to where we are now. Concepts and plans were turned around in a timely fashion and changes and amendments were accepted with open arms.

We enjoy working with Project Design International Ltd and look forward to growing with them into the foreseeable future.'

Trevor & Kirsten Mews – Roquette, Whakatane.

'We originally used Phil for our restaurant design back in 2006. They delivered an amazing project, exactly what we wanted, with great communication and no drama. We had a vision for our restaurant and to see it once it was completed was incredible. They interpreted our vision beyond what we could have imagined. We absolutely recommend PDI and will be using them for all our future hospitality endeavours.'

Rohan Braganza - Wildfire Churrascaria, Wellington

‘We took over an existing restaurant in Wellington and faced the daunting task of converting it into Wildfire. A restaurant with a unique cooking and service style.  Our goal was to have the restaurant look modern, feel comfortable and have a similar theme to our flagship Auckland restaurant.

Natasha from Project Design Design Ltd in collaboration with Southern Hospitality made this process really easy. With an eye for detail and always keeping practicality and the budget in mind, she delivered a fantastic looking restaurant, which we hope will become a popular dining spot in Wellington.

From the design stage to project management and final delivery, we were given very professional service. I would highly recommend Natasha Anquetil and would be very happy to work with her in the future on our next project’

Brent and Lisa - Hayes Common

‘We found Andrew and the team at Project Design International Ltd a dream to work with - they understood the hospitality game and our needs and were great at problem-solving with our restricted space in our kitchen and bar. We have ended up with a great functioning design, utilising the maximum space available to us. Highly recommend.’

Victor Milne – Development Manager, Nando’s New Zealand Ltd

‘Nando’s New Zealand has had a long-established partnership with PDI, from the early days of Nando’s in New Zealand, initially in the early 2000s with Southern Hospitality, and around four years with PDI, since it was established.

We’ve always had an exceptional experience with PDI, it has always been more of a partnership than a business relationship. Phil Llewelyn is a great leader, motivator and problem solver. His involvement has been crucial and always a delight to work with.

Personally, I have great peace of mind when working with PDI, as they take a genuine vested interest in our business and, it’s a real partnership, where PDI bring their expertise and provide fantastic service and support, along with project management and design skills.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend PDI, they offer fantastic expertise and support.’
