Two of Auckland’s arterial roads, running parallel to each other, host two of the city’s most vibrant food communities. Separated by barely half a mile, Sandringham Road’s hub of South Asian cuisine is matched only by Dominion Road’s strip of East Asian eateries, the closest thing Auckland has to a Chinatown.
Restaurants in these areas regularly pop up, flare in popularity, move or disappear. Many others, though, are stalwarts that have stood the test of time, becoming favorites for solo weeknight dining or chaotic, large-group “BYOs” — gatherings where diners bring their own drinks.
