Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Restaurant
“Hands down one of my favourite burger spots in Auckland. Hidden amongst the brick buildings in Osborne Lane, Burger Burger is always humming with activity. There is ample seating, or you could get your order takeaway. My go-to's are the classic beef burger (with NZ grass-fed patty) and banana split.”

Korean Restaurant
$$
“From a Korean born person, this is my recommendation to you. Great NZ meats with traditional Korean flavours grilled at your table with a charcoal BBQ, it doesn't get better than this. If you have a group of 4 or more, make sure you book a private booth in advance. Lively atmosphere and it's always busy with service that looks after you. ”

“Wagamama's modelled on ancient ramen houses where everything is cooked at separate stations and comes out when it is ready. This is done so that food comes out quickly, and is served when it is at its’ freshest and at the best temperature. ”
