Great food from the Japanese kitchen on the first floor at the front of the building. $12 for a chicken bento box is amazing value. Freshly cooked and delicious! Highly recommended.

A good place to go if you're after a quick, cheap meal in the centre of Auckland. Located a stone's throw from the Harbourside (where prices are much higher), the Food Alley offers a range of Asian flavours to satisfy the hungry traveller. Give it...More
