Possibly the worst food I’ve had in Auckland for a long time. From under cooked polenta fries to a weird concoction of food put together that they call a salad. I’ll never order from here again.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with our dining experience at Boy & Bird. Food was super delish (half chicken on fries, croquette and Dutch donuts), and the service was friendly and great! We enjoyed our dinner so much! To be honest, I was...a bit apprehensive after reading the reviews, but we decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted on arrival, and we can smell the delicious aroma of the food! We will definitely be back! THANK YOU!!!!More

Nice and simple, good atmosphere. Yummy food served quickly. Only went the once, but would go again.

Service was friendly but had to go looking for salt pepper & napkins. We got bird box & caesar salad. The caesar portion size was generous but the blandest salad I've ever eaten. Bird box chicken was good & chunkie potatoes were crunchy & perfect...but coleslaw was just blah & left uneaten.More

No complaints about the food which is available either take away or eat in and is fairly fast whichever option is chosen. Service was varied with 1 staff member friendly and the other who seemed like having customers in was an inconvenience to him and...seemed overwhelmed despite a reasonably empty restaurant and only a handful of people to look after.More

While to food when it finally arrived was OK, the service was ordinary due to the waitresses not writing orders down and getting them wrong . UBER eats may be ok for the business also but not for the dine in guests as it slows...the service down.More

The food here is perfect for families with greens, so we chose this for our son's 18th birthday. The food was nice but the service the closest to incompetent I have seen in a long time. Even a tiny bit of training cud have lifted...the game to make it appear like our table of 7 was welcome and had something worth celebrating. It wasn't that busy so no excuse to not clear dirty dishes even when requested. We moved restaurant for dessert.More

We've dined here a few times over the years & it has certainly changed but it's still very nice. We found it too noisy on our recent visit a few Fridays ago but, it's a Friday so it's to be expected.

Big Bollywood noise. I actually love Bollywood but this noise was excessive. Even 2 blocks away. Think about your neighbours Boy & Bird.

I am a local and took overseas guest here. As they said "it was very disappointing" - we had the chicken Caesar Salad. It was full of iceberg lettuce, mainly the white parts - not a Cos/Romaine lettuce in sight. The bacon was greasy and...more croutons than chicken. I have never been here before and sadly I won't return.More
