“A nice enough little alleyway, but nothing to write home about.”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

it is just a mall, with an interesting past, but now it's just shops and eateries and they're a dime a dozen. Were it the only one of it's kind it'd be different, but at least it's reliable and handy to the city centre for what it is.

“Been there done that”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

In its heyday Vulcan Lane was a little edgy now its just like a mall with nice shops. The historic frontages have been preserved but the sense of history has gone.

“Small”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Vulcan Lane - all Aucklanders know it. Why? Well, it's central and over the years it's been a kind of hub - I suppose it still is. There are some nice shops around but you will only need an hour to see it all.

“Vulcan beer heaven”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

Dropping in here for a beer or meal is very easy. Our visit was to O'Carrolls which gives great meals (excellent chunky chips) and huge tasty burgers. The beer list is impressive but watch the prices - esp the US beers which can give a sting. Great atmosphere and crack!
