People Cafe is said to be one of the top 50 cafes in Auckland. That was why my friend and I went there for lunch one day. HOWEVER, the food was terrible. I had hand-made ravioli of duck, shitake mushroom and prosciutto with gingered spinach and oriental hoisin glaze. My first impression was that they looked like giant Chinese dumplings. The skin was about 0.5 cm thick. Literally, the filling was shredded duck and mushroom; I was unable to taste prosciutto.The sauce was a bit too sweet and the chef had obviously added quite a lot cornflour to thicken it. The dish cost $21.50 and I don't think it was worth that much. My friend ordered braised lamb and mesclun with roast potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and a mint vinaigrette. She was so disappointed that there was more salad than anything else in the plate and that the braised lamb was tasteless. It cost her $18. Neither I nor my friend enjoyed our lunch. We were very disappointed by the standard.
