Renowned for its take on international food, Tucks & Bao is an all-day bar and eatery that serves tasty morsels alongside NZ's finest craft beer.

Taking the communal factor from street-food markets, Tucks & Bao has an infectious atmosphere that'll leave you with a spring in your step. It even has its own tiki bar; can you think of anything more fun? And if it's a nice evening, enjoy your dinner while nestled in a bamboo enclosed booth. Welcome to the jungle!

Everyone loves a bao bun and here they're filled with delicious combos you won't find elsewhere! You've got the classic pork belly bao, pulled pork, and chicken and shrimp. There's also a beef burger bao with cheese as well as battered fish and one with crispy tofu. But let's not forget the tucks. Contrast the softness of the bao with the crunchiness of an edamame bean salad or stir-fried Asian greens with heaps of herbs and spices. That's not all, there are vegan, vegetarian and kids options so get the whole gang involved!

Thankfully, no matter what the weather, it's always summer here, thanks to their tropical cocktails. Keep your cool with the berry nice frose, ginger ninja or frozen margherita. If you're after a crafty number, ask the friendly staff for their recommendations.
