Perhaps meeting Tommy, the owner at the restaurant is itinerary visiting Auckland to enjoy the first meal away from home. Mustard Seed has in the sentiment all these years. The familiarity of the place is as easy like pulling up the kitchen chair for the sumptuous meal that you remembered on the menu, and you patronise for the obvious reasons... More

Stopped in for lunch and pretty happy overall with the experience. Service was good, the food very tasty and authentic and good value for the price. Place was a bit cold and not sure you would ever get a great atmosphere in the restaurant as the ceiling is very high and a bit like an aircraft hanger in some ways,... More

I went there for dinner on Saturday night as my friend bought vouchers. I read some of the comments about the restaurant treating vouchers customers as second hand customers so I paid a lot of attention to all the details. It was a nice surprise as the service was good, we were served by about 4 waiters, and the food... More

My wife and i went here, i would not recommend it. To start it was freezing with very little heat, we asked if this could be fixed. But it was not. The people were friendly enough, but the service was not good. The place was very empty but i still had to go and find someone to say we were... More

Great place to chat and enjoy a good meal with flavour. Not de spiced. Very good service. Feels a bit like a hotel.

My wife and I dined here after buying a voucher on Groupon. Food was good but the mains were brought out lukewarm. Five mins later and the mains were cold. As we had already eaten soup & an entree we hoped we could have the rest to take home. After requesting a take away container, the waiter returned from the... More

The service was amazing the food average. Some of us enjoyed, some didn't. Found it very salty. Great that they served the birthday girl a desert without us asking for it :)

They may do great dinner and lunches, but don't go there for breakfast. It cost $25 for the buffet of which the only thing I was game to eat was the scrambled eggs and I even regretted that after I noticed how much oil seemed to be leaking out of them. I don't even know what sort of juice it... More

The staff at this restaurant went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our dinner and to share information about their specialty dishes and drinks. The food was delicious and we loved the Ginger Pull Tea and Malaysian Coffee. This restaurant is located inside the Auckland City Hotel.

What can I say? Mouth-watering sumptious explosion of deliciousness with every bite! The Mustard Seed at Auckland City Hotel outdoes itself yet again in the hospitality and taste department. I treated some friends there for dinner last week - a party of seven, 2 of them children. We ordered up a storm and was happy with the bill :) Today,... More
