The name Jais Aben originates from the language spoken by the local people near Madang, Papua New Guinea. It’s meaning translates as safe harbour or resting place. In Te Reo the name Tauranga translated also means safe harbour or resting place.

At Jais Aben bar & bistro we offer a place of rest and relaxation with refreshing beverages and high quality locally sourced produce cooked with aroha and European style in our picturesque harbour setting.

At Jais Aben, we are committed to using only the finest ingredients. That's why we utilize certified organic produce from BND Farms in Waihi. Our dedication to sustainability extends to our seafood, sourced from Solander Seafood in Nelson and Moana Fisheries.

Additionally, we prioritize ethical practices by incorporating free- range New Zealand chicken and pork into our dishes, while our beef and lamb come from grass- fed farms across the country.
