I loved it here! If your visiting from Vancouver, B.C, it’s very similar to Yaohan in Richmond! Its great because they have Indian food, Malaysian food, Thai food, Filipino food, Chinese food and more!! I loved the Indian food because you can order from a small-large size! You can even add extra curry at no extra cost to ya! I remember the total for our large plate with was around $9 something, plus we ordered a garlic naan, which was so delicious and I highly recommend it! The only thing was that the butter chicken was a little too sweet for my liking and what I’m used to. We also ordered from the Thai place and that was delicious! Lastly the Malaysian food is delicious and it can’t get anymore authentic. There was a second level, but it only had two or three places to choose from, but they were closed. However, there’s a huge seating area at that level so if you want to get away from the crow then head upstairs. I recommend taking cash out, much of the food is around $10-$17. The only credit place I saw was the Indian curry one! Overall great place for cheap eats with a decent portion =)

Thank you! So happy you enjoyed dining with us. All of our kitchens accept EFTPOS (local banks), however the credit card facilities vary from kitchen to kitchen. However if you are travelling and using a credit card Cash is a better option when eating here. There is a ANZ cash machine approx 50 metres up from our entrance. Once again thank you for dining us and highlighting the Credit Card transaction issue. Safe travels.

Many years back we were regulars to Food Alley as the food was good and selection to suit many. So down in Auckland with friends we suggested a trip to Food Alley. It was to Taro Teppayaki, the Japanese eatery upstairs. Been there before and the selection is great. Between us we had Pork Bento set, Chicken teriyaki set (x2),Vegetable Tempura and a couple of sides. Good value and great flavours. More than happy to go again

I've eaten here numerous times (whenever I can) and love it. Great good, great value, great ambiance. It can get busy at peak times but even then the food is quickly served.

My husband was told by one of the locals to come to food alley- great cheap food! He wasn’t wrong! So much choice/ lots of different shops in one place. It is so much cheaper than the restaurants!
It is busy and full of lots of different people- locals in suits on a lunch break/ finished for the day or holiday makers like us! Well worth a visit.

If you have travelled overseas or you are from Asia then this food court will remind you of real Asian food. The building is not your usual modern and glitzy kind at your everyday Westfield Mall but the food is honest and tasty. Like good old street food or road side food shops along the busy streets of Asia. There is a good selection of countries to choose from i.e Thai/isan, Malay, Phililpino, Japanese and Chinese. Pretty much something for everybody. It's a bit run down but it's a very long established food court with good comfort food that will bring you back to your Asian travels or home.
