SCORE: 17/20

Peeping through from behind the lobby of Hotel Britomart, Kingi entices passers-by with its elegant, warm-hued custom lighting inspired by shell fragments. An open kitchen creates a sense of atmosphere yet its placement in a corner, plus clever design and lighting, make for a subdued rather than frenetic feel. Nooks are created with divisions in a way that allows for privacy and intimacy while still allowing a good view of the overall space. So, take a seat and savour. The menu is crafted to showcase the best of Aotearoa kaimoana, with an emphasis on what’s fished sustainably and on getting the very most of the catch. Presentation leans towards simple, with little in the way of garnish, allowing key ingredients to shine. The drinks list is very well designed to suit the subject matter on the menu. The wine-by-the-glass menu is reasonably generous, too. Service is punctual and attentive.
