Fish Sliders are amazing. Great cultural service as always and food is fantastic. I eat here regularly. Sliders are a must.

Well it is busy but worth the wait for a meal. We even ask for a drink lemon and lime without the bitters. In Australia we use lemonade and lime syrup but they use soda water. They couldn't help so the gave us water instead. They went out of their way to go next door to get us the drink... More

3 options for breakfast. Ordered (great) bacon sandwiches, 2 beignets and 2 coffees to take back to the skycity hotel. Easy, convenient, reasonably priced :-)

The Depot was next door to the Sky Grand Hotel where we were staying during a convention and we had dinner there on two occasions. The food and service were truly superb and the atmosphere worth the brief wait (no reservations are accepted). The Depot is very popular with locals and very highly recommended by me.

Well designed dishes even the menu is not too long. We had grilled octopus, hanger steak, fresh oysters and clams. We loved the clams which were very fresh. I really liked the baked chocolate cake with ice-cream, which made the great end for the dinner. The staff were very friendly too.

We come here quite often for lunch and dinner. Everytime the food is outstanding!You can't book, but they just take down your name and number, then we just go to a local pub and have a drink, and they normally ring you in no time. The water is ice cold and they are very good at refilling it everytime. If... More

I live in Auckland but last weekend was my first time trying Depot. I guess what took me so long to try is the fact that this place is always crazy busy and they don't do bookings. So we came in for early dinner on Sunday (arrived at 5.30 pm) and we only had to wait for 15 mins for... More

We come for oysters, but the waitress said there was not any left for the day (weel before dinner time). After a while we anyway got some, and later the counter had a pile of them. Why the negative attitude in the beginning? All the time we had to ask for refill of water. The coffee we order never came,... More
