Restaurant Recs in Royal Oak area?

We have been living in Auckland CBD for the last few months and for our last weeks here we will be housesitting in Royal Oak on Mt. Albert Rd. We will have a car but are looking for recommendations that are close-ish as we like to walk and we have a 4 1/2 year old. We like Asian food of all kinds (as does the kid!) but would try anything good regardless of origin. We don't want to break the bank of course!
Thanks in advance.

  1. I have tried the Indian place in the old Pizza Hut building at the round-about - which was not very good - though that's a few years ago (I think it's called Cha). There's a great pizza place in Oranga called Epolitos - you should try the super-size ones just to see how big they can make it.

    One tree grill at the Greenwood's corner has a good reputation as does the Italian place (we have not tried these). The bakery at Greenwood's is very good - as is the butcher who has good sausages.

    There's the fantastic KK's Malaysian further up Manukau Rd - very small, cheap and crowded but nice fresh flavours. They are open for lunch so it's a good for family dining.
