A man armed with a knife has robbed a restaurant in the lower North Island town of Dannevirke, making off with a sum of money.

Police say the incident at the Saigon Restaurant and Bar happened around 10.40am on Monday, about 20 minutes before opening time.

The man demanded money from the manager, who handed over a sum of money, which the offender put in a dark-coloured backpack.

He left the restaurant through the same door and fled through the New World supermarket car park.

The man is described as 1.65m tall and of slim build.

He was wearing a light blue rain jacket and blue jeans, and had a dark-coloured piece of material wrapped round his head and neck.
