About The Lula Inn

Kia Ora! Welcome to The Lula Inn a Sth.Pacific Eatery & Drinkery.

You’ll find us where the sea meets the shore, sat on the historic Princes Wharf in downtown Auckland, New Zealand. Down here on the edge of the ocean, in our miles-away-hideaway the food is fresh, local & made with love.

The folks are friendly & _the good times just keep-on-keeping-on.

So settle in & while-away some island time. Enjoy the ebb & flow of craft beers, gin cheers, eats, treats & chats. And then, as the sun sets & darkness falls, when it all gets a bit louder, a lot livelier & much dancier — stay on & stay late.

Great value for money for drinks but food menu can be expanded a little bit.

My group and I had a great time at Bottomless Brunch this weekend - our waitress MC was very friendly and attentive, and one of the managers (Georgia) made sure that we got topped up near the end when it seemed like staff were going on break. One thing I would like to mention though was that while I had paid for the table at the beginning of the experience, with each new person that arrived a different member of staff would come over with the Eftpos machine and try to get them to pay. Is there a system to let them know that the table has already been paid for?

I was really disappointed with our time there last night. The food was great, but that was about the only good thing. Our waitress wasn’t very friendly, had no idea about anything on the menu and had to keep going back to the kitchen to ask, our drinks took 25 minutes a time to come to our table, and it was my birthday celebration which I mentioned but the staff did nothing for it.. I thought a drink or a dessert or something would of been a given. Won’t be celebrating an event here again. Very disappointed.

We asked for the music to be turned down. We were told it couldn’t; to which the music got louder and that it turned into a night club at 9.30 -10pm. We asked at 8.15. When you spoke to your table or the wait staff you had to yell as no one could hear you. Perhaps have different noise levels between the bar and the dining. Drinks also took forever to come and the venue was not even busy.

Had a great time, only problem was we didn’t get our food till the brunch was nearly over- very hard when your a starving pregnant lady. And I found that been only a small group of 3 we didn’t get the service for drinks as much as the bigger tables. Still had a lovely afternoon. Thanks 🙏

The bottomless brunch on the whole is great value for money, however some of the meal portions were on the small side such as the corn stack. My mince on toast was delicious and hearty. Service was excellent.

The music was way too loud that everyone had to shout to be heard and my celiac friend was given the wrong meal but that aside the service was incredible and great value for money. We all had a great time and would absolutely recommend to others.

Great venue for a party atmosphere. Only comment is to be prepared for a noisy environment. We went for family birthday dinner and it was too noisy. Great food and music though :)

It was an extremely disappointing visit and frankly slightly embarrassing as I had told my friends that Lula Inn was amazing giving the brilliant bottomless dumplings night I had a while ago. It took over 25 minutes for our first drink to arrive, and for someone to take our food order, and this was after desperately waving our hands in the air to get someone's attention. We were seated somewhere where the sun was very piercing - to no fault of lula inn's but we did ask to be moved, however, again, this took another 20 minutes, which was totally unacceptable. The food and drinks itself was fine - aside from the fact that the vegan appetizer was 4 slices of fruit on a stick and the fact that there was a little piece of blue plastic found in my food, so really it wasn't fine. The table was compensated with a round of cocktails, however, it should not have happened in the first place. Lula Inn was clearly extremely understaffed and bottomless brunch wasn't really bottomless, given that it took forever to get another round of drinks, to the point where we had to go up to the bar several times. Having visited lula inn a few times in the past, This was by far the most disappointing visit and I would seriously think twice about recommending this place to anyone in the future.

Loved the vibes and our server was great. Just some problems with unclean glasses (had lipstick stains) and one of our meals had hair all through it. Server was very helpful though and ensured it was all sorted.

The dumplings were sort of hit and miss, I know there was a lot being churned out but some were delicious, and some were tough and under or over cooked. Also, for a bottomless service, we got ignored a bit. I understand that the prosecco can be topped up from the bottle, could the wait staff circulate with jugs of beer? Or instead of needing to clear the empty glass then bring a new beer, could the staff bring a new beer when they clear the empty one? BUT having said all of that, it was a fun time and I would recommend it to my friends.

Really enjoyed our time at Lula! Unfortunately the food was a bit of a letdown for me - not very flavoursome and felt like a bit of a throw together (I got pancakes). Drinks and atmosphere made up for it though!
