This restaurant is highly recommended. The food is great - delicate flavours and beautiful presentation - the owner is friendly, and everything is as it should be for a fine night out. Not sure about the 'crockery', but everything else got big ticks from me,...More

Beautiful food... thank you for show-casing Pacific Island food. I'm only concerned about the location. Eden Terrace and surrounded by pubs and bistros in central Auckland. I don't know... but if you relocated to eg Royal Oak, Greenwoods Corner or Onehunga - who knows???

What an amazing evening. We went for the 5 course degustation menu being provided in their Buko Pop Up. What a brilliant fusion of Filipino and Pacifika food.

We had another tasty meal at Kai Pasifika last Saturday night. All of our party enjoyed their meal. I had one of the best brownies ever and my Tuna meal was great. The meals are all a really good size. Friendly and efficient service.

I’ve been to Kai Pasifika 4 times now - every time was excellent. The food is the absolute highlight! I’ve just discovered that they pay the Livibg Wage too so I’m definitely going back

Service was initially good, before the restaurant filled up. I had three courses,. The seafood chowder was good however just a bit too much salt, ended up having food envy when I tasted one of my companion's raw fish. Lamb for main, beautifully cooked, falling...More
