I had a great night in this restaurant, always so exciting to try their menu. Im not sure about cheese cake ? But still everything was outstanding, service, food, ambience. It's my second time to have a dinner at the blue breeze inn. I came...here for my 2 years anniversary with my boyfriend and that was awesome experience. Thanks team! :) And we definitely will be back again for those beautiful tiger prawn dumplings.More

As a regular to auckland for business, I love exploring the asian food that Auckland has to offer and this was such a great find in hip Ponsonby! The food was super delicious, spicy and very generous. Someone reminds me of Chin Chin back in...Melbourne. Staff very friendly, very fast service and resulted in me having a nap afterwards (ha)! Will be back.More

Happily visited this joint a number of times over the years and it has always been pretty good. The service is still bright and prompt but they have lost their way a bit with the food - the portions seem to have shrunk; the once...great aubergine dish was inedible (we mentioned this to the waiter but he kinda shrugged and wandered off). We (two of us) ordered some dumplings to begin and they bought out a plate of three - which seems at odds with their online menu suggesting its 4 - and a bit miserable given we're dropping $150+ on a dinner. Sat on the balcony - the chairs/table arrangement has always been ridiculous - low, slouch back chairs so you end up in a weird lean forward to talk to your opposite - that needs sorting. You just get a feeling when a certain arrogance has set into a place & that is the feeling we got.More

Its nice to have a dinning experience with an unexpected twist, while "family friendly" normally does not mean above average food, this restaurant delivers it with tasty clean flavours, which are beautifully presented and very well received by the diners surrounding us. The restaurant was...full being Mother's Day, but that did not effect the attentive service which was brisk without feeling rushed. The decor was interesting and well put together, the only slight minus being, that our table conversation was difficult to follow, due to the happy buzz of conversation from other tables.More

This restaurant is well located in Ponsonby Road. It has a great atmosphere and is in the mode of a Tiki Bar with rum based drinks and a Pacific vibe. The food is presented as Asian Fusion with a Pacific influence. The staff were friendly...and efficient and we enjoyed our Mai Tais. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. many of the flavours just don' work together and the chef has confused flavour with chili. Often that was all that could be tasted. With so many great restaurants in the area, I probably won't be back.More

We ordered few dish , after first dish we tell them please less salt for following dish . Unfortunately each dish is extremely salty which is you can taste the salt setting on the food . Talk to manager who he doesn’t even care about...customers. Also said to me “ you can write whatever reviews you like . Manager was no customer service at all . Other staff was friendly.More

Stopped in for lunch, brilliant small plate menu, had several between three of us, hard to pick the best as they were all great. Good drink and wine selection. Nice sitting on the balcony watch the world go by.

I usually give restaurants a 5 if I like them, but I want to give this place a 6. Food is so good. Each plate very refined and not too pricey. Waiters are super helpful and always aware of you. The decor is very cool...and the ambience is very enjoyable. Maybe one of my top 10 in Auckland 😊More

Food is as title suggests and having done some research on the chef, I can see how it ended up being so bad with flavours that don't work togther. Loser Kiwi guy backpacks through Southeast Asia, can't afford Singapore so spends time in Thailand. Comes...back to NZ and thinks Asia is a homogenous place, so Chinese cuisine must be similar to Thai, oh and let's add some Pacific Island flavours on top. No real understanding of either cuisine, terrible entitled staff.More
