Global Street food - dine-in or takeout

NZ craft beers & wines + cocktails - full bar

From ancient Greece to modern Malaysia, street food has always represented authentic cuisine in a feel-good atmosphere.   

We combine tasty street-food inspired dishes from Asia & around the world with the convenience of permanent city locations featuring bar and restaurant service to indoor & covered outdoor areas.

We accept bookings but walk-ins are always welcome for both drinking & dining. Just hit 'Order Now' above to book takeaways & catering online, or scroll down to book a table.

CATERING & Functions

We can cater your event or function with delicious bao and finger food platters. Use the promo code 10-OFF to receive a 10% discount when you order online. Download the Tucks & Bao Android or Apple App, or visit: (select the Catering menu/store) or drop us an email:

Catering is available from 11am until 10pm daily. Place your order 24 hours in advance. Payments via cash, credit card and invoice are available. Delivery is available for $15 from Albany to Onehunga. The food is dispatched hot for immediate consumption, so it cannot be prepared much in advance - please allow about 10 minutes either side of your requested delivery/pick up time. All orders come with napkins (and paper plates on request).     

How much to order?
As a general guide, you should budget about $24 per head for a full meal, and about $14 per person for snacks or a light lunch.  Two bao along with a few finger food pieces per person is a popular mix for snacks – add another bao or two and a couple of extra finger food items for a full meal.

We also cater large corporate and personal events on and off site, including weddings - just email us your requirements and we'll be in touch with a proposal.   

Tucks & Bao is the perfect venue for birthdays, team lunches, hen parties, baby showers, corporate events and other functions. Our private function area in Newmarket (pictured below) seats 25, or holds 40+ standing, or the whole restaurant can be booked for groups of 60+. There is no venue hire fee for functions - just normal food and beverage costs. The Tucks team will take care of you and your guests to ensure you have a fantastic, stress free time!
