Tried this place with deal voucher.

The people here are very nice and friendlly.

The food from the menu that I have tried is good, but the baked cabinet food is very good.

I thought the coffee is okay.

Overall, really enjoyed the food and experience here. Would surely recommend this place to others

Extremely recommend this cafe! The moment my friend and I entered and saw the salad bar and cabinet food, we knew we’d love.
We ordered the falafel pita pocket and tofu burger, both very delicious and arrived in good time!
To end the meal we both tried the vegan chocolate cake and lemon ginger cake! Absolutely divine, so yum and a very very good size.
Honestly can’t say more good things about this place, very pleased and will definitely be back again.
Cheers for the filling, tasty and healthy meal!

I LOVE THIS PLACE. I’ve been frequenting Raw Power since 2010. There are so many great vegetarian and vegan options to choose from – there’s the a la carte menu, cabinet selection AND salad bar, along with smoothies and coffees.

I have the salad selection every single time – I absolutely love all the different salads they have from leafy greens to barley to potatoes.

I used to think it was expensive but it really isn’t compared to other places. I pay $11 for a big bowl of salad and $5 for a massive slice of vegan chocolate cake (I’ve paid $6 for a pathetically small slice in other places).

Keep up the good work, Raw Power!

I went here yesterday, and I really enjoyed it! The location is lovely, and I got the tofu burger and a spirulina juice. People said it is very expensive in reviews, but I don’t think its any more expensive than most cafes and restaurants. My tofu burger was a bit over $14, and I thought that does seem a little expensive, but it was a huge burger, what looked like a whole block of tofu was used in it, and it was delicious! The spirulina juice tasted really good too. I got a piece of vegan chocolate cake too, and this wasn’t as great because it was quite dry, but the icing at least was really yum. I would definitely recommend the tofu burger and smoothies though!

The food is excellent if you are looking for a healthy vegetarian meal (i am not a vegetarian). The best options are the pita with falafels, soup and the salad bar.

The food here is great. I like the Tofu Burger in particular. I do agree with others that it is a bit expensive. But the location is great and there is a nice feel to the cafe. The window-side tables are especially nice as you get a view over Vulcan Lane.

A very disappointing experience at Raw. I went here, off the back of the Herald Review and will never be back again. Pricing is not in line with the quality of food that they are putting out. I would pay more for actual organic or good quality ingredients. This place is also not vegan-friendly and they use eggs from battery hens. NOT OK.
A couple of good points though – I will be able to reuse the plastic container that my soggy tandoori roti and cheap mescalin salad was supplied in and the service was friendly.
I can only assume that this place has changed management at some point over the last couple of years, as you couldn’t sustain serving such sub-par fare and expect to stay afloat for such a long time.

In terms of price I felt that this place was a tad bit expensive.

In terms of food it was very good, and suprisingly an array of selections to choose from – from tofu burgers to pancakes and to lasagnes and a lot of cake selections.

Despite it’s name “Raw Power Cafe” it’s not a cafe that uses raw food for it’s meals. I don’t think it’s important to dwell and judge the cafe solely by the name because a name is just a name, the cafe owner never claimed that it was a raw food cafe.

There are vegetarian and vegan choices and some salads and juices if you want something on the healthier side. The cooked meals were very tasty and I’d definitely come here back again when I have time

This is not raw at all, it is hardly vegan and hardly fresh, far from organic also. Lots of cheep cheese and all deep fry. Not a sign of healthy food. Not coming back.

This is the perfect healthy lunch place in town. Surprisingly delicious salads. My friend says there must be something addictive in the green dressing, it tastes so good. Fresh squeezed juice delivered straight away. Nice relaxed vibe too.

For people who have eaten at raw power you will understand why I have given this cafe five stars. Firstly, the food is amazing. I am not a vegetarian or a bloody vegan yet still love the taste of this mouthwatering fresh salad bar!! My boyfriend loves his meat yet he is always wanting to come here. I have not tried anything off the menu because I cant pull my self away from the salad bar where you can pick and mix your own salads of chickpeas, kidney beans, ghurkin, crutons, nuts, noodles, potato and many others. The staff here are super friendly and the place is cute with little vegtable salt and pepper shakers. I would recomend this place to anyone who likes good healthy food :-) love love love

I came here the other day expecting to discover delicious vegan food, and the blackboard – which exhibited the main meals – contained a meagre few choices that were ‘actually’ vegan (apparently ‘some’ of the recipes can be altered to be made vegan..).

Moreover, the title “raw” is not very representative of the major features of the menu which are evidentially not raw at all…

Somewhat disappointing, sorry!…

Great tasting food! Auckland needs more of this! Love going to RAW. I do wish however that the eggs were free range! Add on .50c to each meal, buy in bulk and do it! Otherwise they are perfect!

I go here a lot and the smoothies in Jumbo are a god send!

The portion sizes are also very generous.

I’m taking one star off for the use of battery hen eggs, otherwise this would be a five star review. Raw Power is the best place in Auckland to get vegan and vegetarian food. The tofu open sandwich is to die for, as is the scrambled tofu. The choice of fruit for the smoothies has diminished over the past few years, but it’s still one of the few places to serve proper, pure fruit and not those “99% fat free” fruit flavoured, sugar filled monstrosities that pass for smoothies these days. Yum yum yum!!!

The food is good but this cafe is completely hypocrytical when it comes to how it markets itself. The cafe is full of animal welfare and ethics promotional material such as SAFE donation boxes for battery hens, yet they use caged eggs! We even checked twice! Not only is this unethical but they are misleading their patrons.

This cafe is fantastic. It is relaxed and informal, clean, and a bit quirky and cute. The staff are very friendly and the food is delicious. The salad bar is fresh and all vegan and they have a great menu you can order from, as well as vegan and non-vegan desserts.
