Nestled in the heart of Auckland, Illusion is a vibrant fusion of flavours where East meets West in the most delightful way. Half diner and half dance floor, this culinary hotspot beckons adventurous diners to dive into a menu that teases the boundaries of traditional cuisine.

With an interior that's as eclectic as its menu, Illusion presents a cozy atmosphere that’s perfect for food enthusiasts and night owls alike. The intimate dining space is illuminated by soft lighting, creating an inviting ambience where each meal feels like a personal affair. Whether you're popping in for a bite or settling in for a night of varied tastes, Illusion offers a warm welcome.

The menu is a seamless blend of innovation and comfort, with the star attraction being their range of cosmopolitan ramen bowls. From the indulgent butter chicken ramen, bringing a creamy Indian flair to Japanese tradition, to the robust beef birria, each bowl is an invitation to explore global flavours twirled into comforting noodles. And for an irresistible twist, why not add cheese for a gooey delight?

But Illusion's culinary journey doesn't stop at ramen. Their skewer selection offers bite-sized bursts of flavour, with options ranging from succulent teriyaki beef to satisfying halloumi. Perfect for sharing or as a personal treat, these grilled delights are a must-try. For those with a hankering for hearty fried favourites, the cheeseburger and an array of fries, including loaded options, are guaranteed to satisfy crunchy cravings. Illusion’s menu might read like a wanderlust diary, yet every dish feels right at home in Auckland’s diverse food scene.
