Such a wide variety of different Asian cuisines... I tried the chicken bento set and it's such a big platter of chicken with rice for $12.50 with miso soup! It's also full of local Asians so I would think they are a good yardstick of the quality here. I would highly recommend if you have Asian food craving especially in the winter. Hot food never fails. Haha

Had lunch and dinner here in the downstairs area. Great bento box from the Japanese in the corner and steamed chicken on rice with some sort of stock and a delicious lemongrass chilli dipping sauce from the "chicken shop" opposite. No frills but great value if you want a quick cheap meal.

There are many food courts to choose from. I tried dishes from several of them and everything was cheap and delicious

As food courts go in Auckland, this one is tops!

It looks small as you enter, but keep going, there are restaurants deep into the building.

We ate at the Thai place right at the back, and the food was fantastic! Good sized portions and typical food court prices - really good value.

The best thing is that this is slightly out of the tourist tramp, as it is on Albert Street and not Queen Street, so many of the customers are locals. But it has copious seating so you're sure to find a place to enjoy your food.

There is road construction in progress now (2017) in the area, but just walk through all that along the pedestrian paths and all's good. The entrance is at the bottom end of Albert Street, just above Customs Street.

To find it, go to Britomart main entrance - Queen Street is largely pedestrianised there now due to the construction. Face up Queen Street with Britomart on your left and the port behind you. Walk to the traffic lights at Customs Street, and cross diagonally to the ANZ building (lit up brightly at night). Turn right and walk along Customs Street West to the next traffic light at Albert Street. Food Alley is across Albert Street and a little up. There are pedestrian paths through the construction.

Food Alley was one of our best meals in Auckland and certainly the cheapest. We mostly ate at the Japanese spot, which had good soup but just okay fried foods. The juice bar and the Chinese dumpling house were especially good. Absolutely eat here while you're in Auckland!
