Had a fantastic new years eve dinner here with friends. Food was exceptional, as was the service. The staff were very willing to make slight changes to the set menu to fit with preferences. Can’t fault the experience at all, highly recommended.

Five star next level dining experience. We were first to be able to try their new menu. It is a genius level take on kiwi classics we all grew up with. Loved that Kyle came to our table to say hi. Can’t wait to get back 😊

Outstanding dining experience! The Epic Menu at Culprit. is arguably the best set menu offering in Auckland IMO. It is a taste sensation and choosing a favorite course is practically impossible! Awesome staff, awesome food, you will not be disappointed!
