Ponsonby central and the surrounding areas and streets is a great area for shopping and eating out, it has a buzzy atmosphere and an array of shops displaying a mix of clothes shops, housewares and book shops and great for browsing as well as gorgeous flat whites…. it is however pricey and you are paying inner city prices (comparable to London.)

I visited in mid December and there were street markets and a band, making a lively atmosphere with plenty to buy, from home made tree decorations and fudge through to cakes.

Such fun…..

It's great to visit here and we walked from where we were staying in Ponsonby to Queens Street and back again. Great restaurants, cafés and shops.

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 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.
