Over rated and things over priced. But a nice place to walk and have a coffee. Some good eateries but then so has Auckland city. I thought Karangahape Road was more interesting and representative of real Auckland.

There were a lot of restaurants, gift shops, cafes. It also gives you a better feel for Auckland’s everyday life as it is lined with small neighborhood stores and businesses.
