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.
