We got some takeaway here and I was impressed! We got the deal for two people with the fried rice and beef stir fry and it was incredible. One of the best Chinese takeaways in Auckland, will definitely be going back. Yum!

This is a real gem, local told me about it. The food is incredibly fresh and tasty. The stream of locals attending the venue tells you the story. Look for this one if in the area. Excellent value.

Diamond Takeaway is the best Chinese takeaway in Auckland in my opinion. I am a regular customer here and I am never disappointed. Staff and service is great and they do the best combination fried rice I have ever experienced. I highly recommend.

DT is an institution. One of those "world famous in Auckland" type of place. Family run with loyal friendly staff. Full range of the Chinese takeaway classics that are very well prepared and cooked. Very generous servings that inevitably end up being reheated the following day! There is also a deep fried menu along with burgers etc - but you... More

I absolutely love Chinese food and this place was extremely disappointing. The curry sauce was doused in salt.. All we could taste is salt. The prawns were over cooked and felt were like ping pong balls

My husband and I used to get our takeaways from Diamond on a regular basis, but haven't had one for a long time, so decided to give it a go. It used to be fabulous. tonight's chicken chow mein (I forgot to ask for noodles underneath) was bland and the chicken overcooked. The beef and blackbean was way too salty... More

Love this place. It has to be one of the better Chinese places that I know of as always use fresh veges and plenty of meat in the dishes too.

Pokeno is worth taking the minor detour off the motorway travelling North and it is is easy to get back onto the motorway. We stopped for an icecream and there are several shops in competition. Went to Johnson Takeaways and they also sell icecream. Massive range of icecreams flavours and top quality. My wife had a single scoop which was... More
