There are a lot of things to love about Sri Penang. Firstly, their Malaysian chicken curry is all sorts of amazing. Secondly, the owner, Angie, is one of the friendliest people in Auckland. And lastly, corkage is a measly $1 per person. Need we say more? Pro tip: order lots of rotis.

If the Italians have one thing right and it's pizza and wine. Grab an exotic Tuscan bottle and make your way to Archie’s in Newmarket, who serve gourmet wood-fired pizzas like classic Alla Margarita or the more adventurous Al Salmone with salmon, mozzarella, cream cheese and mesclun.


To BBQ or not to BBQ? That IS the question at Korean BBQ joint Faro. And, in our humble opinion, we vote BBQ. Choose from a selection of raw meat dishes (the pork belly and marinated beef steaks are our faves) to cook on your very own grill and enjoy with tasty sides. Whether you’re trying to impress your Tinderella or your friends from out of town, Faro’s interactive dining experience is your go-to.

Po’ Brothers is all about cheap (but good) eats using flavour influences from across Asia including Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam and Korea. Don’t go past the duck red curry or unicorn spring rolls—they will certainly hit the Asian fusion spot.

When the comfort of a curry is all you’re craving, head to Oh Calcutta in Parnell. Tuck into an array of lip-smackingly good tandoori delights, Punjabi Saag Ghosht and of course, Butter Chicken.
