Do I need to tip in New Zealand?
Legally, all our hospitality workers are paid a living wage and tipping is not customary or expected in New Zealand. However, if your food or service was exceptional you may choose to reward someone for a job well done.
Many bars and cafes have a tip jar at the counter, and it is common to put your change in here.
