I ordered a delivery over the phone for a birthday dinner but had encountered a very sarcastic and rude employee. We have ordered from Big Fish Eatery in the past but now they said they couldn't deliver to us because it's too far for them...More

Spent half hour to decide what we were going to eat for delivery as we have had before. This time they decided not to do it. The lady on the phone was rude and her attitude stinks. So not recommend this place!!!

Firstly the food here is outstanding. The fish is obviously delicious but even if you don't like seafood the other meat and veggie options are amazing. I will definitely come here again and again. Excellent services and great prices.

Hidden in the back of an industrial area, tourists will not happen upon Big Fish. It is their loss, but the locals love this place. It is friendly and relaxed with excellent pan-Asian cuisine, superior service, and affordable. I'll go anytime I'm in Auckland.

Visited as part of a large group for lunch. Food was really nice with fresh Tuna Sashimi and Sambal Chicken. Only ask would be for the spice level to be a bit more intense than what I was hoping for. Friendly service in busy restaurant.

You can check their menu online Mains would be about $15, most expensive on the menu is $30. The portions are quite big for me, but I eat like a bird :p
