We have just had an early dinner at this restaurant and the service and the meal was awesome. The Midnight Mix was delicious and we decided on a takeaway dessert as we were full. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good service,...value for money and a delicious meal.More

Really delicious home cooked food. Meats cooked to perfection and the herb mash is to die for.. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

I am unsure what all the reviews below are about, to be frankly honest the food is average and the service mediocre while the greeting was warm and friendly it was a total letdown in expectation.

Very friendly service and really reasonable prices. I ordered the Hummus and pita to start followed by the Midnight mix, both were delicious and very authentic.

Really enjoyed the lamb cutlets here tonight. Excellent service and advice about the menu too. I couldn’t decide between the lamb cutlets and lamb steak. I opted for the cutlets but the chef kindly, and without charge, added some steak.

Marvelous food, spectacular service and very good price. We had lamb served on bread and sauces on top, waters my mouth just to remember. Would definitely go back.

We had booked a high end steakhouse but after reading the reviews we cancelled (thanks TripAdvisor). Midnight Express had good reviews so we decided to go there. We both had the Scotch Fillet and were surprised by what we got for $27. The steak was...great, so flavoursome (marinated), and a very decent chunk of meat. I often find with rib-eye that there is quite a bit of fat left on the plate, just too chewy, not rendered properly. Not the case here, very little left on the plate. The mashed spud was superb too. The starter (hummus/pita) and desserts (sticky date & baklava) were very nice too. The excellent service rounded off a very enjoyable night. Will definitely go back next time we’re in Auckland.More

This restaurant has delicious food and is very good value. Everything was freshly prepared and very quickly too. Nice decor and friendly staff in a perfect location for central city eating.
