Awesome service. The only thing I didn’t like was the name.. I still don’t know how to pronounce it!
Had the vege burger as recommended. Never tasted one so nice !. Best part is they tell you that they do doggy bags and boy do you need ‘em!!!
Couldn’t recommend them enough.
I have now made this my local and have been maybe a dozen times. Thanks guys.. you rock!!!!!
Definitely recommend it for anyone – work lunch, social drinks or just a nice dinner – I’ve done them all and they’ve been awesome every time
I don’t know the area very well so searched a few places and found this place come up with great reviews on Menu Mania. Seemed like a great choice!
It was! We absolutely loved Szimpla and can’t wait to find an excuse to be back out that way again to eat there. The staff were awesome, friendly and efficient. The vibe was great and the food – amazing!
We were trying to be semi good, so only ordered the calamari (truly tasty), the buffalo wings (so crispy) and a side salad (which had a really yummy dressing). We also indulged in a couple of drinks.
We had a really nice evening and can’t wait to go back there and try all the other naughty stuff on there. The dessert menu looked divine!
Despite the place being full of other big groups, the wait time for our orders was next to nothing.
The surroundings are relaxing and you almost forget that you’re at the airport.
Really great place, hope to dine there again soon.
Food superior and all dishes were amazingly and creatively presented. Probably best all round restaurant at low prices I’ve been to and I travel widely NZ and overseas.
Staff very accommodating. Eating solo no problem and very welcome. Met friends and family while en route and stayed next door. Locals had Christmas functions. Will go there again. Lynda Davis
The staff were lovely and friendly and very helpful.
Atmosphere was great! Awesome music. Love the decor and all the little touches were fantastic.
New favorite place to go in Auckland. Will definitly be coming back!
Kind regards Kim
Great atmosphere and environment. I found myself spending a lot of time looking at the fantastic design and quirky touches in the bar (the library is a fave).
The meals are delicious and they definitely don’t hold back on the portion sizes..and the dessert is delish, the sticky toffee pudding is my fave!
Fun, friendly staff who pour a great pint… thanks guys!
