Thank you for making my mum's 70th birthday special. The health and safety practices are excellent in avoiding any physical contact with others or avoiding touching surfaces. Food was amazing

Amazing service apart from the manager on duty. His face was uninterested and just a general lack of emotion. Wait staff were extremely pleasant. The food was great! So much quality seafood! The grill was great, even having some exotic cuts such as kangaroo and alpaca. Dessert was splendid! It was a little expensive but it was worth it for a special occasion as they surprised my partner with a birthday cake!

It was my 6th year anniversary with my partner and we decided to celebrate this somewhere boujee. I came here before for my graduation but my partner didn’t come so thought I’d bring him here to lose his eight virginity. The service was amazing! Food was outstanding and there was never a wait at any line. Every-time me and my partner would go up for food, we would return to our table and our waters would magically be filled again. Also they asked us what we were celebrating and brought us an anniversary slice of cake to acknowledge why we came.
All in all... Eight is a 10/10

Excellent service for a buffet, pleasant ambience and great Indian food and dessert. We felt some of the other food offerings lacked inspiration.

I've been Eight many times and we had a wonderful time dine at Eight and enjoy the outstanding customer service. The food quality was gone down, even the ice-cream not yummy at all. They use to serve Movenpick ice cream. The lobster soup was good and the oysters are so fresh. But overall 6.5/10 :-)

Seafoods were fresh but the steak didn't look fresh and too tough to eat. Pasta was not tasty, everything else was okay. Thanks for birthday petit

Service was great , from the moment you arrive till the second u leave, no doubt about it, the boys and girls in the front house and inside the kitchen are great.

Food selection it's really good. Just a few things that I eat and were not quiet there. The nigiri rice was overly powered by vinegar, birthday cake was really good but then you taste the buffet desserts and they dont have the same quality ,creme brulee was good.

Loved everything,we had best 2 waitesses.It was mum and dads first time to a fancy restaurant,they were spoilt with a cute little dessert at the end that said happy anniversary.Only thing at the end when we paid the bill she said my partner and I can’t pay half each but today it’s ok.Like seriously you should be happy with any money why does it matter who pays for it or what parts.Just take our money it’s not a big deal.What would happen if a group of friends came would you expect one person to pay the whole bill.Sorry but I’m just giving feedback as asked.Otherwise was perfect evening and those waitresses are soooo lovely.

The experience me and my friend had was amazing. Yes, I was skeptical at the cost only because it's not a price you usually associate with what most people would consider "buffet" dining. But after seeing what was available - the selection, the chefs preparing the food, I got it. And it was worth it.

I dined at Eight back in Sept and I would say the food was better then. I was looking forward to having the beef curry again but this time there was none. It was goat meat. Also I was looking forward to the pork scotch fillet but this time it wasn't as nice or cooked as well. I was so impressed with those 2 dishes last time but not this time. I was disappointed. Also the coffee tasted like instant coffee. Everything else was fine.
Madeline was our server and she had an impeccable, polite manner. She came to our table at the right time, was very pleasant, and she made our dining experience a very enjoyable one. I hope this comment contributes to her pay rise.

Our experience was first class, food was impeccable and the service was excellent. Especially our young lady waitress (unfortunately have forgotten her name) but she was extremely helpful and great at her job. Will definitely recommend to others visiting Auckland.

Had a great experience as per usual. Food is impecable, service was a little over the top refilling our drinks when we had bearly had a sip but not an issue by any means.
Our friend having a birthday was surprised with a lovely cake free of charged this was a nice touch.

But only for family dining, very noisy and hot so don’t really a romantic place for a quiet dinner. I also found it very expensive unless you are a massive eater.

Loved the food and staff were amazing when it got a bit hot and my nephew ended up with a bleeding nose. Only issue was we were put very far away from the buffet by a large group who were celebrating a birthday so were a bit noisy.

Have dined here a few times in the past and enjoyed the amazing selection and quality. This time although the service was fantastic we felt that the current standards, selection and quality in the grill section especially were below par. For the price I would now think twice about dining here again.

Our overall experience was beyond amazing. The customer service from when you enter till you leave was something you’d want from every restaurant you enter. We felt comfortable and perfectly looked after. Everything went smooth, no problems. So for future diners this is highly recommended. Food was amazing, so much to choose from. The service was so kind and thoughtful! Even got a kind little gift for our special occasion.

My partner And I come from Sydney and heard about Eight so we come to try it and this has to be the best buffet we’ve been to, to date.
10/10 ..will be back again in April.
Going to tell everyone who visits Auckland to definitely consider Eight.
