Went here with my best friend last night and I have to say.... wow.

The service was impeccable. Very friendly staff! Food came out quickly and was beautifully presented.

The pork belly bao was the highlight. Definitely a must have. The tea is huge and only $4. We had a pot each. Dessert is beautiful. We opted for the cookie dough rather than the desserts in display though those also looked delicious.

They have seating inside the main restaurant and "outside" in another room which would be perfect for functions.

Overall, a really nice experience.

Hidden in the back of an industrial area, tourists will not happen upon Big Fish. It is their loss, but the locals love this place. It is friendly and relaxed with excellent pan-Asian cuisine, superior service, and affordable. I'll go anytime I'm in Auckland.

At first we thought where are we going to as it is situated in an industrial area, not known for restaurants. Soon changed our minds as parking is right outside the door and very pleasant surroundings inside. Staff (Bruce) were most accommodating and helpful with meal choices.We had 4 small share plates for 4 of us and 4 large with rice and salad. Had to indulge in the fabulous desserts although we were full up. The standout dish was the honey salmon, delicious! Also the pork belly bao and beef teppanyaki small plates. Can't fault any of the dishes they were all good. If we had anything detrimental to say it would be that they need proper wine glasses with stems as it is not easy to drink out of a water type glass. That was a little bit weird. Prices are not over the top and would definitely recommend this place and can't wait to go back.

Visited as part of a large group for lunch. Food was really nice with fresh Tuna Sashimi and Sambal Chicken. Only ask would be for the spice level to be a bit more intense than what I was hoping for. Friendly service in busy restaurant.
