My wife and I went for a stroll around the streets near our accomodation in Auckland, and found Cafe Midnight Express. My wife is not a big eater, so she ordered an entree, but I had the $25 special, which consisted of an entree and a main. We both had a drink, and we left, very well fed, all for... More

Came here for dinner last night with my boyfriend and really enjoyed the whole experience. I had the mezze platter as my main which was huge and entirely vegetarian which was great. It was lovely being able to try so many different things this way. My boyfriend had the midnight mix and he was very happy with his meal. As... More

Thanks to the recommendation on TA and the close proximity to my hotel we chose to come here. The food is so tasty! A lot of flavour at affordable prices! It was packed with people but well worth being amongst a crowd of people to taste great food. Will come again if I'm ever in Auckland CBD! Staff are friendly... More

My lovely wife and I dropped in for dinner after seeing a show in town this evening and we were very impressed. From the moment we arrived, without a booking, we were treated exceptionally well. The lovely waitress offered water as soon as we were seated, which was continually topped up through the entire meal. We selected lamb shank and... More

Came across this small restaurant while walking across from Sky City. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. We ordered the set menu with a large shared variety starter and two entrees. All of it was great. On Friday and Saturday night there is a belly dancer at 8 pm. The restaurant had several table setups for larger... More

The menu was typical of any Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant, but it was all done very well, and we were very satisfied with our meal. As we were there on a Monday they had a special offer of two dishes (main + dessert or starter) for 25$, which was great value. Service was highly efficient and friendly. It's central location makes it... More

Found this place while just wandering around in the city and in so glad we did! Probably the best turkish food I've ever had! The interior was beautiful, the staff were very polite (something you unfortunately don't see too much in New Zealand I've noticed). I couldn't fault this place on anything.

I had dinner with dessert here. The chicken dinner I had was great and dessert was from anothert earth! The cheesecake was one of the best I've ever had! They do also have free WIFI. I do highly reccommend this place!

Went to this restaurant twice as it was so good. Lovely freshly cooked food and good value. Had mixed meze to start followed by fish platter. Also entertained by belly dancer on Saturday night. Really warm welcome and service very good.

I went here for dinner and they had a combo special going on. I must admit the service we received was superb. The staff were extremely friendly and looked after us. We ordered our entrée and were delighted by how quickly it was served. The food was soft, tender and fresh. We were only in Auckland for a short time... More
