Such a good place to eat! Delicious and cheap. You can bring your own alcohol and they serve fresh free water so that's really cool! And the waitress were smiling and caring. We recommend it, so as the local people do!

We went here for a business catchup in Auckland and very much enjoyed it. Great food, extensive selection and friendly service. Well priced for location and healthy serving sizes (some had to be packaged to go).

We all enjoyed the meals and service. Quite small premises but that didn't diminish the experience. I see some reviews had poor service but we couldn't fault it.
