"If you were to grab a burger from a fast food joint, you might as well do it right. Afterall, if fast food is bad for you and frowned upon by doctors and nutritionists, you should grab the "best" quality product on offer. Carl's Jr. opened shop here just less than a year ago, and certainly shook up the burger & fries scene. So far, their actual burgers are the closests to how they look on advertising posters and ads. No need to "Photoshop" up their product so they can sell better, because Carl's burgers are, "just the way it is". For today's pure indulgence pleasure, the Steakhouse Thickburger, with an Angus beef pattie, fried onion straws, crumbled blue cheese and A1 steak sauce, with fresh lettuce and tomato slices in a sesame seed bun. It tasted exactly like the ingredients listed, big, satisfying mouthfeel, certainly reminds you of being in a fancy steakhouse... only in a burger form. I also loved their fried zucchini, something different to the "me too" fries and onion rings, and hey, at least I am eating a serving of green vegetables right? Only deep fried and made better... Free drinks refill (which actually isn't the norm here in NZ), iced tea (again, not many places offer it here and just like the many places in the States I remembered), and a free sides bar with fresh onion/tomato salsa, gerkins, jalapeno slices, whole chilis and sliced beetroot, so you can customize your burger of choice even more... I always put a ton of jalapenos with mine everytime I visit. Service is excellent for a fast food burger joint, they actually bring your order out tableside so you don't have to wait by the counter. This should be the benchmark all other burger joints should aim for, move aside Burger Fuel (our local used-to-be the hip trendy semi-fast botique burger place, which have gone downhill since quality and price wise), and McDonalds/Burger King/Wendy's don't even compete on the same level. If you want a good honest burger for not a lot of money, make your way to Carl's Jr."
"Love the burgers. Huge and tasty. Staff friendly mostly. Place clean. Good experience. Regular customer"
" Carls Jnr has enormous burgers, but it's not just the burgers that makes this place. The service is outstanding. By the time you've placed your order and filled up your cup, your mean if pretty much waiting for you at your table. The fries are excellent, especially the cross cut ones, as are the chicken tenders. Favourite Burger: Thick Burger"

"If you have put yourself on one of those fad diets and living off little more than lemon juice and pumpkin seeds then perhaps introducing you to Ezmeraldas is not the best idea. Think hot chips oozing with garlic sauce so tasty that people have been known to drink it. If you are used to ordering a kebab late at night on your stumble home and thinking you have never tasted anything as amazing then these kebabs are going to blow your mind. Ezmeralda’s is a Papakura institution, skipping school to get a late lunch feast has been known to tempt even the most studious of local highschoolers. Remember to order the chips and good luck holding back. Sorry in advance to all of those dieters out there."

"You never know what to expect from a florist, especially if you're a male and flowers aren't really your thing. At Country Floral there is a wide selection of flowers along with the friendly staff and great service! They make it so easy when it comes to selecting flowers! I think the hardest thing to do was deciding on how much to spend. Was surprised as to the variety of flowers and bouquets. If you are looking for the best, look no further. Check them out for yourself, using the power of the Localist!"

"Yes is it a DIY warehouse but it also houses a great little café that is pretty close to its claim of having the best coffee in Takanini."
" We had to return a product, without a reciept, that we had brought on my sister's staff account, and one of their customer service staff, a lovely friendly girl, spent ages digging through account purchases to find our one, so that we could return our item. We were rapt with the extra mile that the lady had gone to, just to make it easier for us. We love Mitre 10 now."
" Was looking for some plywood boards to make some signs, after hunting for about 25 mins decided to try mega Mitre 10 Takanini. As soon as I walked in, BOOM, score, never mind having to cut the board to size they had some off cuts and they were exactly the right size. Asked about them and they would have probably been binned but I scored them for a cheap $5! Just goes to show, you never know your luck these days. Thanks Mitre 10 takanin, your staff are great and always have good deals on!"

" We had large urn and a dead space in our apartment and a picture in our head about what we wanted it to look like. Buchanan & Irene listened and transformed our idea in to a stunning display which is now a feature in our living area. Amazing people with amazing talent. You need look no where else to bring your dreams alive."

"A place to chill, laugh and dance with your friends ! Meet lots of new and fun people try a few cocktails and let ur hair down."
" First time eating at Stampede - its a bit expensive but its well worth it - the food is terrific and the service is excellent. The environment is great - its like a real steak house.. "
" I was really looking forward to visiting Stampede after hearing you can sit on saddles at the bar. You certainly won’t miss this place as you approach – it’s like the O.K. Corral in the middle of Papakura. They’ve put a lot of effort into the aesthetic and it works really well – boulders and succulents down the side of the building, saddles in the entrance, bucking broncos on the television screen, bar menus set in a lump of wood and the staff wearing cowboy hats. The bar menu is very cute – saddle sore skins, lasso onion rings and cactus flower. There weren’t that many wines on offer, but I’m guessing this is more of a beer or cocktails place. One end is the bar area, with a separate open sports bar (must be smoking section too), and the main part of the venue is the grill restaurant. Lots of burgers and sizzling steak coming out of the kitchen. There’s another part of the venue next door which looks like it’s a bar/club and takes up about the same area as the main bar/grill. There were quite a few families having dinner when we visited, so I’d be interested to visit later in the evening. There was a poster for an upcoming Winter Wonderland event, with some good DJs playing, so they must get a reasonable crowd."

" OMG !!! My partner loves Egg Benedict, does she what. We have tried many...many cafe's I would have to say they make the best Egg Benedict in Auckland."
" An easy to find, well presented cafe which is tucked back from the main road. There is a sheltered outdoor area with seating for 30 or so and a similar capacity inside. The cafe has a modern feel, art on the walls and background music on the go. A large menu with daily specials, fair trade coffee and gluten free options. Wheelchair accessible, child friendly & free off street parking."

"My three children have all attended Puffing Billy Daycare and what a fun, caring family orineted daycare it is. I highly recommend this daycare to parents looking for childcare for their children. "
"Our son started at puffing billy at 1 year of age and stayed untilhe left for primary school, 4 years later his little sister followed in his footsteps. We have nothing but praise for this daycare center. The focus is 100% on the children, a massive playground beautiful class room area and friendly knowledgable staff. The cook Christine is brilliant also - my daughter said to me, mum why dont your vegies taste good like chrissys! After leaving the daycare our son has been awarded top in class every year and ven placed in the top 20%in the country for his year level in reading and numeracy. We believe this is in part because of the excellent foundation he received in his early years. Thank you Julie and puffing billy, I would without hesitation recommend this daycare to prospective parents."

" This is one of my favorite places to dine in. The staff are extremely friendly and I have a favorite meal here too! I had the steak and chips once and was sold! Tender juicy scotch fillet with chips with a side of green salad and a mushroom sauce, delicious! Great atmosphere and plenty of options to choose from. The fish and chips platter was also another good choice, fish cooked to perfection served with a green salad and dressing of your choice. Thanks guys and girls at Boodles, keep up the good work! Love it!"
