About Phil's Kitchen

We are new to the block but are already making a name for ourselves among the best restaurants in Auckland.

Our Kingsland restaurant has a constantly evolving menu to highlight the best of Aotearoa’s seasonal produce. The chefs european training heavily influences the dishes but his local roots add a Kiwi twist to modern european cuisine. We take ingredients that you know and love and turn them into something extraordinary.

Our food may have european flare but our dining experience is laid back and welcoming. We know great food means little without great service and atmosphere to complete the package. Take a seat and savour every mouthful and every moment.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Phil’s kitchen. The presentation and delectable dishes especially the lamb racks and ceviche. Phil and Dianna were welcoming and provided outstanding service.

Wow, wow and wow again! The food at Phil's Kitchen is absolutely amazing. We had the 4 course degustation and from the beginning to end the mushroom veloute, snapper ceviche and beef cheek reduction were heroes in dishes of flavour combinations that were bang on the money. They appeared simple but in conversation with Phil as he cooked a lot of time and love has gone in to the multiple elements. It is not the most atmospheric of places (admittedly its was cold and quiet Sat night) but then you are going primarily for the food and in that - you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for an enjoyable experience and beautifully presented and expertly cooked food. I would like to make the suggestion that you include a mocktail and an alcohol free beer and an alcohol free sparkling wine to your drinks menu. My one and only disappointment with the night was that it was a celebratory dinner and there wasn't an appealing non alcoholic option for either men or for women to choose from to celebrate with. The apology was delivered beautifully by your matrie de and I appreciated my sparkling water with ice but there's a real missed opportunity here for your business. Increasingly, your clientele are likely to include sober drivers and those guests still wanting to feel like they've gone out for dinner and had the Phil's kitchen dining experience complete with a celebratory experience drink, that cannot tolerate alcohol or choose not to drink it for one reason or another. A Heineken Zero and a glass of non alcoholic bubbles And one virgin cocktail would've conpleted my otherwise perfect experience.

Fabulous restaurant, could not fault the food or service. The only reason I marked down on atmosphere is because it was extremely quiet on the night we dined. Will definitely be back.

exceptional food and service, we opted for the degustation menu and were delighted by the depth of flavours within each course.The amount of food over the 4 courses was enough to make you feel satisfied.Can highly recommend going to experience the quality of food and service .I only marked the atmosphere down because it was a little too warm.

The food was absolutely delicious beautifully presented a visual symphony. Mr Berlin was a delightful Maitre d. It was overall a wonderful experience and Phil is a lovely charming and friendly Chef. I have already recommended your restaurant to friends. I would just add that the wines were rather expensive but as the food wasn't overpriced i understand you need to make a profit.

A beautiful night. We had the four-course set menu. Every dish was an excitement of flavour and texture. We lingered over every mouthful. Artfully created and presented, satisfying and stimulating. I recommend Phil's for any special night. We'll be back.

Consistently amazing service and food. Each dish is a gem. Beautiful, distinct and stylishly presented. Warm, friendly and helpful service, and always a pleasure to chat to Phil at the end of the evening.

Really enjoyed the food, but service was very slow and on Valentine’s Day we had to leave early without finishing all courses on degustation menu as the service was slow and I had organised a babysitter at home so had to leave early as I only had the babysitter for a certain period of time so in that case it was very disappointing that we weren’t able to finish all courses but still had to pay the total amount.
