“Yummy lunch”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Had lunch at Thai me up Thai restaurant. Great value great meal great name. Had the lunch special entree and main not a complaint amongst the 5 of us. Would definitely visit again if ever in the country. Pleasant and quiet setting. Friendly staff, and with a name like Thai me Up who could resist. If you love Thai food this will not disappoint.

“Some good cafes”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Some good cafes on this strip but perhaps a bit overrated. This was supposed to have lots of great alternative and speciality stores but I was a bit underwhelmed.

“Have a bite, buy a gift or something for yourself”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Ponsonby is a great spot for a bite whether it be casual or a bit more fashionable. It is also such a great spot for a drink or a dance. There is also some great shops to buy something for friends or family or even treat yourself.

Ponsonby Central is the old market building now converted to a group of funky restaurants and bars, organic market, specialty grocer etc. http://ponsonbycentral.co.nz/. We ate at Tokyo Joes which was great Japanese donburi, sushi etc bought some artisan bread and visited an antique poster display all under one roof. There is seafood, tapas, european etc food here and great location at cnr of Ponsonby Rd and Richmond Rd, Very central. Recommended.

“Offers so much”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

One of my favourite parts of Auckland - close to the CBD but so different.
Great bars and restaurants, a sense of history and excellent shopping.
