We had a party of approximately 20 people, and as it was a birthday, we had a cake. Only on they day we called to confirm the booking were we told of a “cake-age” fee, but were told to talk with our waiter about it being waived. We did this on arrival, and were told that they would waive it.
After we ordered and every one had finished eating, a person I can only assume was the manager, approached my parter and explained that he was now going to charge a flat fee($30) to allow us to have the cake. He then did his best to explain this was a “good deal” as normally he charges $5 per person and “all restaurants are doing it”. He also argued that he was losing money as we wouldn’t then buy desserts and he had to pay staff to clean the dishes used for the cake. I can almost understand this, however they only provided napkins for us to eat the cake from.
I’m guessing he did this as the place was so dead, but he did a great job of ruining my partners birthday dinner.
We paid the charge to avoid an argument, and as everyone had eaten, it wasn’t really possible to relocate everyone for cake.
We would not have minded if they were up front about the charges when we booked, but he has constantly changed his mind, as he clearly has tried his luck for a few extra dollars.
Would definitely not recommend.
What was ridiculous was they charge $10.50 for still water. (not sparkling water!).
We could not believe this and the man at the counter was unfriendly. We have been to many restaurants and this is the first time we have been charged for still water.
Seriously this is the best Pizza I’ve eaten in Auckland!
The quality of ingredients, flavour and taste is exceptional.
I especially love the 1 meter Pizzas, great value of you’re entertaining and don’t want the usual Nasty cheap rubbery ones from those takeaway joints.
One downside is you can NEVER get through on the phone, from the time they open till they close that line never stops ringing. Best to order on-line and then pick up as you can wait a long time if you don’t!
Also another downside is their website doesn’t allow you to order half/half pizzas so you must try get through on the phone to do so.
Otherwise the best Pizza in town, its pricey but well worth it!…OH and you unfortunately need to schlep to the City to get it!

If they are saying they are busy, don’t be offended, it just means they are awesome!!!
Tip: just call in to make your order, be patient, wait for 20 min and you won’t regret, believe me
I dined in the pizzeria twice, will do many more times.
I love that place!!! Pizza is amazing!!!!
While I was dining there, approx. 20-40 1m-long pizza boxes were taken away, does it say anything??
Check Minos Pizza in Howick, the phone’s often of the hook, if you are in love with Minos, you just have to go there. However, if you are in, you are in front of the queue(of phone orders)!!!

One of these restaurants that was great but survives on its old reputation. Would not go back.
The dough that this places use is very nice, it feels like a fermented dough so it has an aromatic crunch on the slightly charcoaled part and a bread chewy but not dry texture so I’d give an A – to the bread part.
As for the toppings, the cheese they used felt like of a high quality cheese but as I don’t eat dairy I felt that there were too much cheese and not enough toppings. The tomato sauce base however was very good.
I actually ordered a vegetarian pizza with no cheese and I wondered why the chef gave me a wink when I took the pizza away. As I opened it when I came back home I realized it was all covered with mozarella. I mean….what a nice chef! too bad he didn’t know that I am not into cheese at the moment so it took me a long time to remove it. Nice staff anyways, the rissoto balls (vegetarian) were really good by the way.
