This is a great location - close to the mall and the movies but not in it. Good free parking close by. We had prime rib and ribs, and both were really good. The service was friendly and genuine, and was quick enough to get us to the movies for the start. All in all, a good experience.

I go to this restaurant often because there is little genuine competition. The pricing has been reduced in the last year to reflect to Manukau consumer. Good news! The food is good and well presented. But the service is poor. One the upside, you don't have overly enthusiastic staff forcing drinks and food on you. On the downside, it's hard... More

This bar was a short walk from our accommodation so we thought we would try it our first night there. We ate there every night we stayed in Auckland, great atmosphere, great food and excellent customer service. Staff were constantly checking we had everything we needed and did we want to order anything. Nice friendly atmosphere, sports on TV and... More

Thinking of a nice place where you can experience the culture of Polynesia and modern mash with humor? That's Republic. To top it off its a good place to get some ribs that even for a large eater would end up taking left overs home. I live in town and like the buzz in the cbd but you can't beat... More

I was staying near by for work and this was the first place i saw to eat. I ended up eating there two nights and was happy with the food both nights. The downside of being away for work is that you eat alone so its always good to find a spot with a TV, Republic has a big tv... More

My husband and I have been here twice and although the first time was a bit of a miss, the second time saw much welcomed improvement. Our first visit was lacking in service, which our second visit made up for. We ordered meals on both occasions and unfortunately the waiting time hadn't changed - both visits we were left waiting...

My friends and I normally meet up at Republic on Saturday nights because of the Shisha, Cocktails by the hour, live DJ and just all round good vibes. The guys behind the bar are awesome ... minus one and there never seem to be any drama from the patrons. I've had dinner with my partner here once and probably wont... More

We were looking for somewhere to have dinner and then watch the rugby and we found the perfect place. I had the vegetarian filo parcel and that was delicious. My husband had the nachos and he really enjoyed them. The drinks were also reasonably priced and they had a cocktail special which was excellent value. Would definitely come back here.
