“Make Sure U Visit "Ponsonby Central"”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Ponsonby Central is the old market building now converted to a group of funky restaurants and bars, organic market, specialty grocer etc. http://ponsonbycentral.co.nz/. We ate at Tokyo Joes which was great Japanese donburi, sushi etc bought some artisan bread and visited an antique poster display all under one roof. There is seafood, tapas, european etc food here and great location at cnr of Ponsonby Rd and Richmond Rd, Very central. Recommended.

“Offers so much”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

One of my favourite parts of Auckland - close to the CBD but so different.
Great bars and restaurants, a sense of history and excellent shopping.

“Good old ponsonby”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This stretch of road not offers old houses to see but it has excellent pubs, bars, cafes and some retro shops to browse or shop. A bar I would recommend is COSH BAR.. I hired it out for a private function:)

“Boutique and Designer Shopping at its best with Historical buildings thrown in”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Ponsonby is a great place to visit for historical buildings and some great boutique shopping, great eateries and cafe's, designer clothings and also great for those second hand and antique collectables, if you just like to have a wander and find some treasures.

“Nice bars, cafes etc”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Nice place to go for a drink or lunch with friends on a sunny day. Quite a bit of choice available and not bad prices if you look hard enough.

The international food court has several places to eat ALL at very good prices.
