Dennys has a simple and reasonably priced menu. The food is not cordon bleu but very edible and filling. I have always found the service at Manukau Dennys to be friendly and prompt.I enjoy the free refill coffees.

My partner and I decided to give Denny's a go as it was a recommendation from a friend. When we arrived, the woman at the front counter was welcoming and nice. She sat us at a table very quickly but the booth she put us in was quite small! It wasn't very comfortable to sit in this tiny booth; even... More

Visited Dennys for the first time in over 10 years to re-live some memories with my dad. The waitstaff are great! Very attentive, they placed us at a booth really quickly. Sadly they then put a young family next to us who's kids were quite noisy but that couldn't be helped. After ordering and receiving our drinks, we waited quite... More

Dennys has always had very mediocre meals although they have a huge selection for both adults and kids. I've never thought they were value for money but still we somehow keep going back. it's a very family friendly restaurant which is great.

Senior meals big enough for teenagers? We were ever surprised when our meals were served. Nothing fancy but good food and plenty of it. This is a Family restaurant, so quite noisy but this is to be expected. Good to see so many diners, a recommendation in itself. Service was acceptable, waiting staff seemed to thaw once we were seated.

If you're looking for a meal at a reasonable price then Denny's is the place. The wait times for the meals are quiet long. I've been here several times. Great place to have a decent meal after hours.
