The Observatory Buffet Restaurant, SKYCITY - CLOSED 

Cuisine: New Zealand, Pacific, Seafood, Buffet


Always have a great experience when dining at the observatory, love the food, its always lovely, just on the pricey side though,don’t think they should be charging that much. they are quite strict with seating times. the scallop mornay is always so delicious, but always miss out on the crayfish.

Fortuna Buffet Restaurant, SKYCITY 

Cuisine: Buffet, Breakfast, Asian, International


my gosh the make over at fortuna was so worth it
I’m glad they reviewed their menu too because the night we dined was really good.
#1-Food is excellent for $$. oysters were lovely and fresh but a tiny bit gritty still, everything i tried was lovely except dessert, maybe we didn’t get all the options that night cause it was very basic, fruit pudding,Pavlova,choc mousse, something strange & unnamed in a shot glass, wasn’t good.
the decor is lovely.

Vietnam Cafe 

Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian


#1- Food is always great. no doubt! fresh ingredients, flavours are always spot on. love the food!!!
#2- the building itself is not so good, it looks run down, dirty and not looked after.
#3-baby high chairs are broken, not safe!
#4- tables and chairs look unclean
#5-service? i dunno……..
#6-parking is terrible in front, but side driveway to back/side of building is better, there is a large lot out the back, but hello it’s Otahuhu lock it or loose it. LOL

Over all I go for the authentic flavours but try block out everything else while I’m there.

Denny's 

Cuisine: Family, Breakfast, Burgers


haven’t had a bad experience at Denny’s New Lynn so far, so happy to recommend, the service we get is always wonderful. the older lady with the glasses, she is awesome and so accommodating. the food is what is expected now of Denny’s, back in the days it was really good but over the years it has gone down, and for the amount you have to spend now. we usually only dine on birthdays for if we are starving and nothing else open that late, but New Lynn branch is best and not far behind city branch. i think Denny’s NZ need to re-evaluate there menu and the way they cook. also the child menu should be 12-13yrs and under not 10.
i think if Gordon Ramsay ate at Denny’s NZ he would be appalled.

Denny's 

Cuisine: Burgers, Family, Sandwiches, Breakfast


We dine here few times through the year and the food is usually good, but i think it has gone down a lot in the last couple of years, there is no love put in it what so ever. the veges are usually always microwaved and not the greatest nor the salads, which are not even thought through. its a shame Denny’s have turned to this. we still enjoy dining as a family but the cost to dine there is not worth it anymore. the meals have gotten smaller and the service is average. we usually only go now if its someones birthday, although the kids meals are only to age 10. which is silly, it should be to 12yrs at least. a little saddened how it’s not the same as the old days. i guess its all about money money money and not the quality of the food and service.hhhmm??

KUSHI - Japanese Kitchen & Bar 

Cuisine: A La Carte, Japanese, Asian, Sushi


Happen to be looking for a place to dine one dec night, quite late on saturday evening,and stumbled across Kushi, we were starving so we just walked and they seated us pretty much straight away which was great, they were very friendly and quick on their feet. they took our orders and food came shortly after, presentation wise was 5stars, and the flavours were all there too. very much enjoyed our meals(bento boxes) they were a little pricier than some other Japanese restaurants we have been too, but the it was a bonus because we got 50% off my husbands meal, if it is the week of your birthday you can get 50% off your main.woohoo for us. the decor is fantastic and the toilets were spotless and so so nice, lighting and decor 2thumbs up. the music so so fantastic too, we asked where we could get our hands on those tracks it was so good.
the only down for me personally was that it was a little too dark in there, maybe they dimmed the lights down that night for some reason, but other than that, its a wonderful place to dine. 4.5 stars from me.:-)

Yummy Palace Dumpling House - CLOSED 

Cuisine: Health Food, Chinese, International, Asian


We brought 2 all you can eat dumpling vouchers and the first time we dined here was ok. There were goods and bads to our experience, we were the first to arrive (being 10.30am) and was served politely, although we were 2 tables away from a large table that hadn’t been cleared from the night before. It was a bit gross. But we stayed and ate our yummy dumplings but then another group came in killed it for everyone, yes I understand that the table should have been cleared but these customers went so over board, yelling at the waiter and basically threatening him in front of us. He could have taken him away to speak to him but snobs like these like to belittle others. (as they were seated right next to the dirty table. ) So we asked to take away the rest of our dumplings and left.
The 2nd time we dined as a group of 4, it was an evening and it was nice, apart from the waiters having to be called over for assistance and not refilling our teapot. The toilets are shocking though, very dirty looking and hallway etc: I think they just need to clean up a bit and re paint, take down the crappy chilies hanging. lol
The dumplings were okay this time, edible but rice was only a small plate and average. They were going to charge us for a take away container too. $1. weird but in the end didn’t pay.
I have mixed feelings about this restaurant and will likely only go back if it had a make over.

Eight Restaurant at The Langham Auckland 

Cuisine: International, Asian, Brunch, Desserts / Bakeries


Have dined at Eight a few times now and always fully satisfied, food is so fantastic, and waiting staff is very good. Drinks are pricey but too be expected being at the Langham. Only one thing I’d mention is that the grill/BBQ station is usually qued up a lot and takes a while to get your meat cooked, also same deal with the waffles.
We’ll be back in future :-)

Blossoms Espresso Cafe

First timer to Blossoms and was very nice, nice size portion I got and fresh ingredients used, staff weren’t all that friendly but scenery made up for it, got to sit in the sun outside and they did have high chairs (bonus)
Likely to return in future .:-)

Denny's 

Cuisine: Burgers, Family, Sandwiches, Breakfast


Bad Bad Bad!!!!!! 0-stars
This is the worst Denny’s Restaurant ever!
I Even formally wrote a complaint about my terrible experience and i didn’t even get a reply! Denny’s NZ, you need to pay more attention! Shocking!!!
Highland Park branch should be closed down.
My husband, baby and I dined here for dinner one night, it looked bad as soon as we walked in (go with my gut next time and turn around and leave)
We got seated and it took ages for the unfriendly waitress to take our order, when we finally got our dinner after a long wait, I still had to wait another 5-10mins just to ASK for cutlery.
When we got our food, only half the plate was full, I ordered the salmon, it was totally over cooked, under sized and looked like it had been from the week before, it tasted terrible too and side veges were cooked to death and cheese sauce was watery. My husbands steak was very under sized, over cooked for what was requested (med) and I swear a very small amount of chips (could have counted them) they were cold and dry. He also ordered the veges and the portions were both different, weird.
It came to time to pay, and it costed far too much, it should have been free! They didn’t even ask how the meal was. Very bad service. And might I add the whole time we were seated all we heard was yelling staff in the kitchen, swearing and joking around.
We are frequent Dennys customers, but our usual is Auckland City and New Lynn. Far better service there, if we hadn’t had great experiences at the city and New Lynn branches we would have been PUT OFF for good.

Khun Pun Thai Restaurant 

Cuisine: Thai, Asian


One of the nicest Thai restaurants we have dined at, very authentic and service was good. we had the pad thai, a curry and a beef hot plate, was fresh & delish, and had a entertainment book gold card so was great to get the discount. very clean and modern too.

Lucky Star Restaurant 

Cuisine: Chinese, Asian


We usually dine here for yumcha and its good and cheap, id say one of the cheapest around. It’s better to place your order for what you want rather than wait for them to come around cause sometimes they don’t always bring out everything. Food is always good and its pretty clean, for a Chinese restaurant, modern seats/tables. You have to get your own sauces though if you otherwise ask cause they won’t just give it to you. Waiting service is okay but not all speak English well. To be expected I suppose.

Icon Restaurant & Bar 

Cuisine: New Zealand, A La Carte, Family, Breakfast


Hubby and I dined here a couple of Saturday nights ago, we arrived and it was empty (7.30pm) I thought it would be busy seeing its connected right next to a motel/hotel. I thought it looked nice and cleaned, and set up is good, out door area is nice (would be good for a girls night/drinks out side patio)
we were seated and served straight away and meals came out shortly after, the food tasted good, but i could have cooked it at home! hubby ordered steak/tempura prawn meal and i had the duck, both meals were so small and not filling and not to mention expensive for what we got, so was kind of disappointed, we didn’t bother with desert. My 3 stars go to the the set up of restaurant and service. You need to review your menu, portion sizes and price Icon.

Secret Thai Garden Restaurant 

Cuisine: Thai, Asian


This has got to be the best Thai food I have ever had, we are never let down by that, I must say, we have dined here at least 6 times and its always good.
It’s super hard to get a booking and you need to book well in advanced, especially groups. the atmosphere is really nice, out doors but covered, its so hidden you would never guess just what is behind the wall if your looking from the street, it’s that much of a secret. hehehe. service is okay though, I think they just need more staff, as you do tend to wait around a bit when its busy but I guess that’s too be expected. The set menu is what we usually go for and has a great variety of authentic Thai dishes, and affordable too $35.per head.

Cafe Mosaic Bar & Restaurant 

Cuisine: A La Carte, Breakfast, Buffet, Cafe


My hubby and I dined a couple of months ago, we had a coupon/voucher $20. for 2mains, 2deserts and 2 glasses of wine,
we were welcomed in and the time we arrived it was a full house even though we had booked, a table was offered by a family that was nearly leaving so that was great, it turned out to be the nicest night out in a long time, food was very good, and portion size was awesome!!!(steak meal and ribs) hard to find a meal these days that cover the whole plate and my bread and butter pudding was so delish, the only problem was I needed a bigger serving it was so good! also we didn’t feel like drinking that night so we were offered ginger beer, which we went with.(happy)
We also took along our new baby and she was a little unsettled, the manager was ever to kind enough to hold our baby while we enjoyed our meal, I have to say this is the most child friendly restaurant in NZ i have ever been too, the only other place was a 5-star hotel/restaurant in Samoa.where the waitress carried our then 1yr old while serving. i Guess that is part of the culture, children/babies are very precious and it is nice to see that they are being looked after too when you are dining even though they do not take up a seat nor order any food.
Thank you again cafe mosaic for a great experience.AA++++++ :) we will be back

Daikoku on Quay (Teppan-Yaki) 

Cuisine: Japanese, Asian, Seafood, Steakhouse


Food is yummy I can’t complain there, but the portion is not much at all, kiwi’s do eat a lot, and well Japanese do not, they eat light and in small portions, had to wait a while for our booked table though, and service took a while too. 3 stars for the food but that’s about it.

Renkon (Parnell) Japanese Eat In & Takeaway 

Cuisine: Japanese, Noodle, International, Asian


We went last night it was my 3rd or 4th time, the food is always GREAT! the portion is good, could be a little bigger, but still filling for $11, mains and $4. starter. the starter is small though but ohh so tasty. The main price has just gone up by $1. but that’s OK. i always enjoy my meal and the service is pretty good, and I love the chilled out setting inside down the stairs its comfy. well done Renkon Parnell keep up the great work! Not to mention this is still Japanese owned!

Taiko Japanese Restaurant 

Cuisine: A La Carte, Japanese, Asian


The first time my hubby and I went it was fully booked out but they accommodated us at the bar and that was OK, the sushi chief was really home warming and we liked his company, the food was so yummy! try the octopus balls they’re a hit! And so we went back with our children, food was still yummy as but as they were busy again service was a little slower. Each we have been we are happy with the food, although I have been told by a Japanese friend this is one Japanese restaurant that is not Japanese owned any more, which is a shame, there are a few around owned by Chinese and Korean now.
