Restaurant Review: Gemmayze St

4.0 Cuisine 14 October 2018

Something exciting happens at the back of K’ Road’s atmospheric St Kevin’s Arcade of an evening, with a street-dining-meets-palm-court ambience and superb Lebanese home cooking. Start with the silkiest hummus ever or vibrant tabbouleh while being guided through the exotic Lebanese wine and beer choices. The staff are as authentic as the aromatic, satisfying food, served in perfect sharing portions, beautifully cooked and full of Middle Eastern flavours. Order the ‘jeeb’ and chef Samir Allen (pictured) will send out a stream of cut-above classics such as baba ghanouj and fattouch, followed by larger plates such as samak, a golden-fried thick nugget of seared h?puku on an aromatically spiced green lentil stew with fennel purée and stewed radicchio. Finish o with the exquisite rose custard and green apple dessert topped with a crunchy bunch of katai pastry.

Restaurant review: Gemmayze St, Auckland CBD

4.0 New Zealand Herald 12 August 2017

Best use of quinoa in urban Auckland? The octopus dish at Gemmayze St.

It is popped, puffed and liberally applied. It adds crunch to a salty, smoky taramasalata that is, in turn, topped with tangy, chewy octopus tentacles.

That is a lot of adjectives for one dish. They are all warranted. When Gemmayze St gets it right, the results are outstanding. Even when it gets it wrong, it won't be through lack of trying. Take the $25 market fish. Tarakihi rubbed in spice, sitting on wilted greens, covered in shellfish bisque foam, served with blobs of onion puree, puffed rice and something pink and pickled. Too much? The onion had been overly charred for my palate, so, yes.
