Went back again this week for a $25 two course special at Café midnight Express. Waiting staff were engaging and very friendly, and really make the place. Our waitress (lovely curly hair) was especially fabulous and made our evening making sure our water was topped up and that our meals were OK. The chicken skewer was so large with lovely... More

This place has great brunch, coffee and baked goods. The service is a little snobby though but the food is quite good so if you are up for a little patronizing servers give it a try!

Our family of four (two adults and two kids, ages 9 and 12) went here for lunch based on tripadvisor reviews. We went around 2pm and the restaurant was empty. Lucky for us it was Monday and they had a special (2 entrees and 2 appetizers for $50). We ordered a couple of lamb dishes and some dips and pita.... More

Solo lady diner. Great wait staff, had the lamb with salad, Tzatziki and Hommus. All with a nice NZ beer. The lamb had a few chewy fatty bits, but not too bad. The Hommus was a little bland (not enough garlic for my taste), but overall a satisfying meal for a reasonable price.

What a smiling, friendly welcome we received and although we hadn't booked a table was found for us. We enjoyed a most delicious meal, starting with a shared dips platter, then midnight mix and finished off with baklava and turkish delight. We returned about two weeks later for our last meal while in Auckland. This time we indulged in a... More

We went here on a Thursday night, the food was very nice- so nice in fact we will likely be going back tonight. Wasn't too expensive, the only negative thing i would say if pushed is that the staff are a bit too attentive- I felt like they were standing by our table watching us eat which I thought was...

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal and drinks here. We arrived for dinner early and enjoyed the shared mezze plate with a couple of drinks before ordering our mains. The food was very tasty, quickly served and of high quality. I would love to go back for another meal - maybe next time I am in town.

The food here is excellent, value for money and large portions. We come back here time and time again as the menu caters for all of us fussy eaters - vegetarian, seafood and meat lovers. Friday and Saturdays have a jovial atmosphere with belly dancing, and sunday onwards have specials with desert or starter and main for the price of... More
