About kingi

Make way for the hottest new spot in Britomart Square – Kingi has arrived. Celebrating New Zealand seafood, the restaurant harbours a chic interior with a sleek, refined menu to match; mainly comprised of local, sustainably sourced seafood. From the masterminds of Orphans Kitchen & Daily Bread, Kingi’s evening menu consists of three sections – Antipasti involving octopus carpaccio and hot smoked Kahawai, a raw bar featuring Chatham Island Kina on toast, and an a la carte menu of crayfish rolls, blue cod buttermilk wings, and the Kingi Burger. Picture cosy wood-burning fireplaces, marbled tabletops, cool lighting, and the exposed brick of The Hotel Britomart, and there you have Kingi. Indulge in all New Zealand’s nature has to offer and wash it down with fine wine.

Our server, a lovely young woman from Mauritius, kept our table of 8 deliciously well nourished with warmth and efficiency. A faultless first experience of Kingi.

Faultless! Staff were fully attentive to every request, discreet yet present when required. Observing the dance of all those who prepared our fare with such elegance was a delight....and every morsel of that meal most memorable... needless to say we will return

Everything was great. Jeremy and the team were great, and the place is beautiful. Although I understand that the prices are a reflection of the infrastructure and quality, I thought it was a a little bit steep, which will limit the number of future visits.

Really disappointing. Love the sustainability factor but the delivery of the food was average and the sides were left wanting. The food needs more flavour and in regards to the side just more on the plate, we got 3 1/2s of half a carrot on a plate. Such a shame. Wont be going back unless the menu is improved.

Kingi, our new favourite dining venue. A table for six right by the open fire - perfect. Great food, prepared with care and skill. Our gorgeous French table server was attentive and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great evening.

Unfortunately we had a package deal that came with our stay at Hotel Britomart, therefore it was a set menu, which was disappointing as we would of made different choices.

Great selection of antipasti we tried several and enjoyed them all. The roasted carrot with lardo went well with the burrata. Also enjoyed the smoked kawahai and the roasted oyster mushrooms were a stand out.

From the incredible handmade glass chandelier art to the delicious, adventurous food made with passion, Kingi really is in the top (small) handful of great Auckland restaurants. Attention to detail, impeccable service, and noticing the little things means we'll be back again and again.

Great Menu for Seafood Lovers. I went with my husband on a busy Saturday night. Menu was very modern and the food to die for. Great athmosphere inside and waitress was so lovely. I will be back for sure :)
