We believe it’s everybody’s responsibility to look after the environment. We believe in real food. We believe in spreading good vibes only.

Intro About - fresh food restaurant

We’ve made our largest nest in Ponsonby Central. We’re fully licensed and open from 7.30a.m. until late, 7 days a week. Guests can enjoy our real food philosophy whether in our plant-filled dining room and airy daytime café—which turns into a relaxing bar at night—or from our famously fresh takeaway counter.

Located a stone’s throw from the beach, our Takapuna restaurant is open from 7a.m. until late, seven days a week. We offer dine-in and takeaway real food from breakfast through to late-night, as well as a “Juice & Java” window. You’ll find us at 40 Hurstmere Road.

"Fresh, hot off the rotisserie quarter free-range chook (leg side) because of the crispy skin (the best part) and salty, sweet chicken meat."

"Egg noodle salad with pulled chicken and heaps of sweet soy dressing! I love the spice to it and can’t go past Bird’s chicken. Best in town."

"I will have to go with our BLT! It has a generous portion of crispy panco crumbed chicken breast, fresh lettuce, a delicious tangy taste from the mustard and mayo all placed inside a toasted Wild Wheat baguette!"

"The Schnitzel hands down, there’s something about chicken fried in butter that just makes perfect sense. Plus the fried capers add a saltiness to the dish and it’s just epic!"

"Definitely the buttermilk fried chicken because of that tasty jalapeño yoghurt! I also can not get enough of the harissa mayo."
