Ponsonby is very near to Auckland city and offers many choices of cuisine in the neighbourhood. It's considered as a rather upmarket suburb with some beautiful Victorian houses.

Try Dizengof in Ponsonby road (think that is correct spelling). Very good selection, be prepared for it to be busy but have a look upstairs as it often has available seating. Delicious food, reasonable prices.
