Poor food quality. Overpriced and no taste what so ever. Indian food was the worst I have had in Auckland. Sushi wasn’t fresh. Seafood and the grill options were average. Italian was bland. Desserts were below average. Overall not a nice experience. Would never recommend it to anyone!

Great attentive server, food was great, ambience is mediocre but I guess that is what you get at an expensive restaurant experience. Great for an occasion.

Yikes. This is a buffet. Lot's of kids (well behaved for the most part) and then what must have been a tour bus unloaded with 40 or so tourists all at once making the lines long and the food gone for some items. Buffets degrade over time, and this one could not successfully handle half of the restaurant's patrons arriving at once. The service was very good at the table and behind the counters. The food was what you would expect at a buffet of this type.

The Lunch being experienced at Eight Restaurant was amazing and had delicious foods and enjoyed the different cuisines. Not only was the food was great but we had a very lovely staff looking after us and making sure our lunch was exceptional. Thank you to Tammy for looking after us during our lunch. Always smiling and ready to assist us with anything. Really appreciate her enthusiasm and bubbly smile. Looking forward to dine with Eight Restaurant again. Thank you Joey and Makereta x

Fantastic restaurant!!! The food was amazing, all except the gnocchi it was a little gluggy and may have been sitting for too long. Other than that everything else was beautiful. Service was amazing, especially from our waiter/waitress Sam and Winona. Sam was amazing, his manner with all walks of life was incredible. He is a credit to your restaurant.

We had received a gift voucher from my son and was really looking forward to coming to 8 for dinner, we have certainly visited many local restaurants in our area and had great food, to say the least we were very disappointed with the food you have on offer ,sure there was a big selection of meat and seafood that is cooked for you, but the side dishes that were there were not great.
I was looking forward to the salad bar only to find that there were no made salads you pick a selection of very basic ingredients and it’s tossed for you with a bit of sauce.
The pasta station was a disgrace cabinet of pizza, and 2 choices of pasta which was very stodgy and cold.
I won’t go into the deserts only to say that they were left on the plate.
Overall the amount you charge for want you offer we feel is disappointing, we could have dinner at Top restaurant and pay less per person for a three course dinner than the $128 you charge.
Would not be recommending to any of our family or friends nor would we return

Fish was undercooked and was raw in the centre more over the salad counter staff was more keen to clean her stuff rather focus on what customers want .really felt uninvited over all didn't felt worth the money I don't think I will ever recommend this place to other thanks

Booking online was easy then after having to change the number in attendance I called and was given prompt service. I came in (a bit stressful looking for parking)to pay the deposit and would’ve preferred to pay at the 8 restaurant but was sent to the main reception which didn’t make sense esp when I had to wait for a free concierge... the food was amazing and waiting staff lovely except for one y’all Asian guy who had either a bored or sour look but overall good... I loved the seafood (plenty of oysters yum) and the creme brûlée was divine (had x2) lol the ambience was good and my husband and his friend both enjoyed their birthday song an sweet treat! Thank you 8 Restaurant!

My friends and I dined here in celebration of a birthday. I had booked in hopes they would appreciate and love the food just as much as the people who work there, as well as the whole environment - definitely got the result I wanted! Second time dining here and the customer service is always consistent and the staff here are the loveliest! Thank you Harpreet, for your patience with us! You definitely contributed a lot to making our night a great one!

Food was good! Meat selection was good, seafood could have more variety was guttered there was no salmon apart of the sashimi and sushi raw salmon, missing some signature flavours on the sushi bar like teriyaki kitchen and salmon and avacado. Italian pasta could have been better was pretty standard, the ice cream was amazing, the chocolate fountain should be milk chocolate, the favourite chicken for me was probably the tandoor (indian) and the seafood with the fish selection. Need to have a juice bar i think. Highlight would be thoughtful gift for anniversary so sweet
