Description: We make beautifully hand crafted deli food. If you are craving freshly baked bagels, Smoked cured brisket on sourdough rye, home cured maple and cherry smoked bacon, home made lox, home made cheese curds and poutine, we are the best place in Auckland for it. We are also the only establishment in New Zealand to serve Canadian beers.

We had a great dinner and breakfast at Al's Deli. The smoked meat was great, bagels very "Montreal," and the entree salad was delicious. We liked it so much that we went there twice. For a great, simple, and relatively inexpensive meal, Al's is fantastic!

The hard shakes are just incredible (had the peanut butter one) and the chicken salad which was very filling. My partner had "the main" which seemed like it would be bigger and more filling than what he thought however it was actually small and he left still hungry. The apple pie fries and the cheesecake were delicious. I liked the setout of the deli however we were seated next to the staff room which was awkward when people kept popping their heads in to have a conversation

real montreal bagels and smoked meat are usually only found in that great city. but in auckland they are able to replicate this unique montreal cuisine. i dont crae for poutine but many canadians do and they have that dish here too, great atmosphere and vibe served with the typical hospitable NZ charm.

This place was full when we arrived! We were seated at a table for two. As meat lovers, ordered the mixed grill and the Snickers milkshake which was awesome. The steak was perfectly cooked, wish you guys had some lamb on the menu though. So full - but always room for a dessert, so we ordered the cheesecake, which absolutely melt in my mouth. The service was really welcoming and friendly. First time in Auckland, definitely coming back. Thanks.

Been wanting to try this place for years, finally tried it the other day! Pretty happy that I did because this place is awesome The layout of the restaurant reminds me of 'Mel's diner' in the states but with a less retro vibe. The staff are out of this world friendly!! Heaps of places to sit and we managed to grab the balcony seating, love being able to look down on upper queen street while we ate. The menu is pretty compact with a medium sized amount of options. Ordered the poutine (small size), the 'main' (pastrami style), the caramel banana milkshake, iced coffee, the 'al dog', the moose ear doughnut and 'als' cheesecake. We did our best to try a range of what was on the menu The savory dishes were all lovely and great portion sizes for what you paid. My only critique on these is that the poutine was incredibly small, even for a small size (considering it was 8.95....) but totally worth it because now I am obsessed with poutine mmmm The sweet treats (and drinks) were amazing! Not too sugary, the ingredients were clearly natural and I didn't feel tooooo bad about the calories All in all Al's Deli is a great place to grab some American/Canadian style food in the city
