Must-try: Azabu, Ponsonby
30 Sep 16
26 Ponsonby Road, Grey Lynn
If you are looking for a cosy spot to spend your Saturday night you must head along to Azabu - Ponsonby Road's latest addition. Situated at the K'Rd end of Ponsonby Road complete with plenty of customer parking around the back should you need it.

If you need further convincing, the Japanese x Peruvian style menu is full of familiar faves - dumplings, tempura, beef tataki and crispy pork belly as well as some not so familiar dishes including tostada, lamb cutlets and some very tasty twice cooked chicken. The fit out is seriously cool - a dimly lit space with beautiful timber and tan leather. At the back of the restaurant you will find a lovely bar and lounge where you can continue your evening or simply pop in for a drink and admire the beautiful surroundings.
