Visited New Year's Eve. Wait staff prompt and helpful but the food was disappointing. Chicken was dry and the pork dish tough. Quality is preferable to quantity on my opinion. As I am coeliac gluten free option should be marked on the menu rather than the waiter having to recite them. Won't be recommending to coeliac society as a place to go.
Usually good food, served in generous quantity, but the premises are now looking tired and in need of a makeover, especially with the Brickworks complex across the road at Lynnmall. Getting a good waiter is hit or miss, they range from bright and helpful to "thick as two planks."
Bricklane has daily specials which are really good. I had a Sunday roast for $17.50 which was really lovely. I chose beef, but lamb and pork were also available. It was beautiful and tender, and came with a good sized portion of vegetables. One night a week you can get any dessert for about $9. It's not uncommon to get meals in the $15 - $20 range, which is very reasonable. Located across the car park from Burger King New Lynn, so it's easy to find - and there's plenty of on-site parking too (always a bonus).
Wine and beer prices are typical West Auckland pub prices - wine around $8 - $11 per glass. Bricklane implement a responsible drinking policy - this is good, as it makes the venue suitable for families, pensioners and others.
Have always had good service and food at Bricklane, which is why I've returned many times over the years for a meal.
One of my favourite local restaurants! Food is alway great and is the perfect place to visit in summer to get use of their outdoor dining area. Great to have either lunch, dinner or even just a few drinks with friends. Highly recomend!
I had dinner here last night was totally blown away by the great level of service and the amazing food.
With generous servings the menu is a work of art with the wonderful selection and i have to admit the salmon just melts in your mouth and is a definite must have!!! I will be back!
