A wide ranging and delectable selection. Extremely well presented, and exceptional service. Cocktails were tip top as well.

Went for the epic tasting experience, and was not disappointed. Dishes seem to just keep coming. Ideal to go with 4 people, so that you can try all the mains.

One of our favorite places in Auckland - IFYKYK. Exceptional service, food is consistently great, as is the vibe. We now have a very special memory of Cuplrit - where we got engaged!

We had the 3-course Chef's Menu and everything was delicious! The food and flavour combinations were spot on and the service was excellent. If you're thinking about trying it, do.

WOW!!! what an experience, absolutely delicious food and service. Will most definitely go back and experience this again. Food was great, with flavors I would have never put together, but that is probably why I am not a great Chef or a chef at all. Thanks Culprit for making this a remarkable evening
