Auckland Restaurants

Being an island nation, and a remote one at that, seafood from the clean waters of the Pacific is what it’s all about down here. For the poshest nosh, head down to the Viaduct on the waterfront where you can look at the sea while you indulge in some Pacific rim cuisine. Prices are generally mid-range and up although you can get some reasonably priced fish and chips in one of the pubs if that’s all you’re after. Another thing not to be missed is Asian food. Geographically New Zealand is much closer to Asia than Europe and that is reflected in how Kiwis eat. Grab your chopsticks and head in to an Asian foodcourt. A far cry from the usual offerings of fast food, these foodcourts are reminiscent of those in Singapore, Malaysia or Hong Kong. Prices are low to mid-range and everything is cooked fresh to order. If you’re brave, you can even ask for extra chilli. All along Queen Street you can find the usual fast food outlets with kebab and sushi take away places in between. But don’t forget to try at least one traditional New Zealand pie while you are here. Standard choices are steak and cheese, steak and mushroom, chicken and mushroom, and smoked fish, but be on the lookout for specialties such as silverbeet and cheese.
