Hey team - We're hungry tonight and craving Chinese takeaways - specifically sweet and sour pork and fried rice.

 

Unfortunately our usual place is about an hour away, so I need something in the central city... any recommendations?

AKL City is a big place.. which part?

 

 

 

Diamond Takeaways in Remuera, Bamboo Kitchen in Mt Eden or Meadowbank are the best IMHO. They have the same original owners and as a kid I went to Diamond Takeaways over 40 years ago. Norm's still running the show at the Meadowbank Bamboo Kitchen.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions - as mentioned Central city, so CBD. I'm located on Quay Street specifically. 

 

Will take a look at those places, but would prefer something in walking distance if possible... although I don't like my chances!

There's a place on Elliott St called Dragon Boat which Google tells me offers takeaways, but I've only ever had a sit-down meal there. I'm certainly not an Auckland expert though!

For future reference: http://www.zomato.com. Get the app.





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

You aren't going to find "Chinese takeways" in Auckland CBD. The CBD has primarily Asian residents who will want authentic cuisine rather than basterdized "takeaways". You have sooooooo many choice of amazing restaurants in the CBD. Just walk around and see what is busy.
