Queen's Rise

Discover Auckland's latest dining destination
20 June, 2018

Queen's Rise, a new laneway-style dining destination boasting an incredible design and excellent worldly cuisine, is now open at 125 Queen Street.

Drawing inspiration from the bustling dining precincts of Australasia, Europe and New York, Queen's Rise brings together 11 unique eateries conceived by Auckland's top restaurateurs with a successful track record of creating one-of-a-kind dining experiences.

The line-up includes Lowbrow, the baby brother to the iconic contemporary yum cha eatery, Culprit. Understated yet quirky, Lowbrow will serve their unique take on fast food to those who are after a quick wholesome meal and relaxed environment. Lowbrow dishes up fresh and seasonal food with an edge, complemented by natural wine and bespoke cocktails.

Also in the mix is Grace, a culinary twist on elegant yet affordable dining that uses clean flavours and New Zealand sourced produce.  A theatre kitchen and bar will be the prominent feature in the compact yet cleverly appointed dining room. 

Another major highlight will be Ottoman Mezze Lounge, a Turkish inspired concept brought to life by top restaurateur Alex Isik of Feriza's. The laidback lounge will bring traditional Turkish dishes and an emphasis on shared eating alongside a hand-picked wine, craft beer and boutique whisky menu.

Other must-try eateries at Queen's Rise are Dante’s Pizzeria serving the best of Italian cuisine, Nourish Pod - the original Acai bowl dealers, potato joint and watering hole, Potato & Me, as well as fresh and healthy options from Poke Bar, traditional Chinese dim sum and dumplings at Panda Town, clever takes on Donburi from Tokyo Loco Bowl, guilt-free goodness at Jar Story and deli style sandwiches from Dolly Bird.

Queen’s Rise is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week, offering something for all tastes.
