1. Zool Zool

Fine dining restaurant Kazuya’s sibling eatery is a chilled out ramen shop with window seating, ideal for slurping noodles unwatched.
405 Mt Eden Rd, Mt Eden


2. Federal Delicatessen

A generous stretch of pass seating means you’ll feel part of the action at Al Brown’s Jewish deli-inspired restaurant, without feeling in the way. Shared plates are happily reconfigured for solo diners.
86 Federal St, central city


3. Il Buco

This Ponsonby institution is almost designed for lone dining, with a rack of magazines ready to keep you company, a prime location for people-watching and pizza by the slice for not-so-hungry pie fans.
113 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby

5. Bian Sushi

Allan Jung’s Bian serves some of the finest sushi in town, best enjoyed in the window seat.
