As part of their annual awards, Metro magazine have released their Top 50 Auckland restaurants.

There are some new entries this year, with two new Britomart restaurants on the list; Vietnamese restaurant Cafe Hanoi and the sophisticated Japanese eatery Ebisu.

Cafe Hanoi

Downtown is well represented as usual, with the spectacular new French-Japanese fusion restaurant Morita on Swanson Street.

Two Ponsonby restaurants are new to the list, including the hip and trendy New Japanese style Cocoro. Our reviewer gave Cocoro a four star review.


The second new Ponsonby restaurant is the uber-popular MooChowChow, bringing a sense of fun to Asian dining in the central suburbs.
