My wife and I could share a superbly economical lunch for $10 each recently. She had doner kebab while I indulged in the Moroccan style falafels. Both dishes were superb and so bountiful! There was such a lot of food that we knew we weren't in Asia with its obsession with 'nouvelle cuisine' Lilliputian portions. The service was efficient and... More

The staff were great. They made room for our group of twelve when we arrived with no reservation. Service was great and so was the food.

It had been 2 years since I had been to this restaurant. To be honest, I completely forgot about this place. Mainly because of the recent roadworks blocking out the street view of this restaurant. Well, all I can say that it is a shame that I counted this place out because this place is still as great as it... More

We did not want a huge meal and were pleased with our choice of a platter and dessert. The total bill came to $33 for the 3 of us. Excellent value for money.

Had a light meal here en route to a visit to the casino across the road. Shared a large platter and calamari plus drinks for around $50. Noisy and tables squashed together but atmosphere was generally good humoured, staff very helpful. Why it's named after a prison/druggie movie I have no idea.

My wife and I went for a stroll around the streets near our accomodation in Auckland, and found Cafe Midnight Express. My wife is not a big eater, so she ordered an entree, but I had the $25 special, which consisted of an entree and a main. We both had a drink, and we left, very well fed, all for... More
