1947 eatery restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant 1947 eatery serves contemporary Indian food in the Auckland CBD on Federal Street.

1947 had us at slow-cooked lamb shank, but there’s more to this diner than its signature dish, which is simmered for five hours in a rich melee of spices and arrives on the bone, ready to fall apart onto the restaurant’s excellent naan. There’s the fit-out, for a start, which has a sort of industrial Mumbai vibe, all drop lights, steel and reclaimed timber, along with a tuk-tuk in the corner. There’s a back story – possibly apocryphal – about three friends “discovering” recipes long lost from the time of partition in India, but what you need to know about 1947 is that the food is entirely, fantastically authentic, unsullied by Western additions or flavours. The service is charming, attentive and enthusiastic, and the beer list is excellent.
