Tony's Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By Paul R - Auckland

Food is delicious !! Very reasonably priced for the generous potions you get. Their dessert is also great- particularly the bannofee pie.

La Rosa

Reviewed By Rachael H - London, England, United Kingdom

When we walked in and the restaurant was full including big groups heart sank as I assumed service would be slow and sloppy. Couldn't have been more wrong. Service was excellent. Very attentive and non pushy. Everything timed perfectly. Food was excellent with very generous portions. Will definitely be back but if you go on a weekend night I'd recommend you book in advance.

The Hangar

Reviewed By food_luver01 - Johannesburg, South Africa

The beer batter chips are truly delicious! They stayed crispy even after they cooled down. I had a margarita pizza and would like to say that the dough was quite tasty and I always appreciate that. The service was superb and I'm sorry to not have taken the lady's name down to mention her personally.

Chikos Restaurant and Cafe

Reviewed By VicnJen67 - Morrinsville, New Zealand

Good friends organised a dinner at Chikos. Looked at the menu from home and was a little surprised with the lack of vegetarian options. Place was very busy on our arrival at 7.00pm on a Saturday. Venue is new and very smart. Waiting staff were professional and seemed happy to be there. Darling and I chose a share platter with King prawns, battered mussels and chicken. Well cooked and yummy condiments such as fried Kale, beetroot relish and what tasted like a Miso creation. Ordered a side of wok cooked vegies that were spot on. Our friends had the lamb main which on this occasion was lamb romp. Her one was a lentil based gravy filled delight. His was the gluten free option so was a little plainer but still much enjoyed. Dessert was an unexpected delight. Around a dozen hand made treats. I loved the tiramisu and my Darling had an affagato. We had a side of coconut ice cream which was spot on. The coconut brûlée was small but tasty. Dinner for four with mains, drinks Deserts and coffees for $209. Great value and will be back to try the rest of the desserts.

Saaj Indian Cuisine

Reviewed By arby235 - Auckland Central, New Zealand

Besides the regular Indian food they try to push Indo-Chinese as well but I guess the Chefs believe some of us don't know the difference!!! The locals possibly frequent this small joint simply because they get a "cheap curry" but for me, I'll give it a miss. The colouring, sauces and masalas used are so very similar in most dishes and that's certainly not healthy and of course appetising.

Et Tu Bistro

Reviewed By Debbie R - Auckland, New Zealand

I have heard great reports about this restaurant but today the food was good but the restaurant lacked service. We were seated and order taken after about 10 minutes. Once we our meal arrived and being the only people in the restaurant you would thought the service would be superior but no not at all.
We looked for staff no one around to take drink orders. We had to get up and go to the counter where we waited for the yoghurt/smoothies guy to stop talking, so we could get near the counter to pay the bill. When asked how was everything? I replied you forgot about us? Sorry was the reply I was watching the counter, while staff were eating their lunch? Pretty poor.

Musashi is our favourite restaurant in Auckland. We've actually had to make a point of going to other restaurants otherwise we'd always be in musashi. Friendly staff, amazingly authentic and tasty food, awesome ambience, reasonable pricing (The $15 lunch deal is a steal) Can't fault them.

La Porchetta Henderson

La Porchetta is an Italian À la carte Restaurant reknown for our tasty pizza, pasta and traditional dishes made from the best quality ingredients. With over 74 stores in Australia and New Zealand, your next Traditional Italian mean is not too far away. THIS IS OUR STORY... Almost thirty years ago (1985), when Rocky Pantaleo and Felice Nania took over a run-down pizza shop in Melbourne's Italian hub, word got around. News of La Porchetta's great pasta, pizza and Italian-style menu, its atmosphere and great value spread rapidly and soon it became renowned as a special place to experience good food. Since then, the La Porchetta family has worked hard to create that experience in other restaurants.They wanted to bring the same special qualities - delicious food, warm service, great value and a family heart. They all maintain Rocky and Felice's original passion, however each is unique to its community and each will look after you with the same family passion. ---------------------------------- This Henderson branch is no different, we bring this passion to you 7 days a week.

We had some family friends to entertain for dinner with less than a day's notice and we were in a panic because we couldn't find anywhere that sold affordable European food with a nice dine-in setting for 7+ guests. After some pondering we decided on...MoreHi Sharon. Thanks for the nice review. We appreciate you choosing us. Hope to see you again soon. Debbie
