Usual Denny's really. Had a great breakfast as a family. Girl who seated us looked a little lost herself lol, gave kids adult menus and basically looked dazed. Maybe she was new, maybe it was sunday morning. Lovely waitress Emili(?) very professional, friendly and helpful- which is nice as some young serving staff can be useless, but she was great....

Not a great experience in Denny's. I ordered fajitas and when the server came over with both meal he explained the kitchen had cooked the wrong dish and if I wanted that instead?! I explained no, o wanted what I ordered. When I finally got the fajitas they were very disappointing. Just one albeit very large tortilla, so impossible to... More

Had a catch up here with my kiwi cousins during a recent trip. Perfect location near Sky Tower. Spacious and clean. Food was great, arrives on time and reasonably priced. We ordered an assortment of dishes from chilli fries, nasi lemak, fish and chips, sandwiches, etc. And no one had complaints except that the portions were so generous we had... More

I visit Denny's in the Auckland CBD quite often, I like the location as it is close to the Sky Tower, the parking is terrible but the dining area is great to sit down and talk and the food is pretty good, chocolate fudge cake is the best, good value as you can share with friends!

Went here for dinner before a show, it was convenient and had been recommended by the hotel. I'm wondering if the hotel was getting a kick-back!!! Staff uninterested, steak gull of gristle. Had the Surf n Turf.. menu said with a special sauce... heated up thousand island dressing is not "special".

Arrived in Auckland at 7am from a long international flight. We were unable to check into our hotel, so we stored our luggage and went off to breakfast before catching the Hop On/Off Bus. The hotel staff recommended Denny's because it was close. The restaurant was spacious but our biggest surprise was to find several breakfast options for $10, including... More

We had dinner here before going to a show. We ordered steaks. The waiting staff obviously lacked training and motivation. I had the impression they were there against their own will, and I should perhaps facilitate their escape. The food was totally unacceptable. Macerated vegetables (carrots and broccoli - how exciting) in a bowl with a half-inch of cloudy water... More

Its a burger chain that is open 24hr and that is about it. It was quiet and the service was prompt but the pancakes were nothing special. The coffee was ordinary so the $14 total was over priced Would not return unless nothing else was open......anywhere
