Best Bites - August is Restaurant Month

August is when Aucklanders are enticed out of their warm winter burrows by restaurants offering great deals. With 100 eateries offering set menus at great prices ranging from $25, $40 and $55, why bother cooking another curry or lasagne?

While others head off to sunnier shores, pretend this is your winter vacay, throw the diet to the wind and head into the heart of the city. Spoilt for choice,  Aucky Walky have done the hard work for you and canvassed the best deals revealing 7 diverse options from Italian, to Thai to Kiwi style bistros - all at $25 per head. Some of which include a glass of sangria or barista coffee. That should see you through the first week at least.
