Kia Ora

A truly New Zealand restaurant and a concept straight from the heart. Award winning New Zealand Chef Ben Bayly and Front of House professional Chris Martin are proud to be bringing the very best of New Zealand hospitality to the Auckland CBD at Commercial Bay.

Our name, Ahi, translates literally from Te Reo Māori to mean Fire. A nod to the kitchen and also to the passion that drives us, to deliver an experience for our customers that is second to none.

Fine dining quality meets laid back sophistication in an unrivalled location.

We are open from 12.00pm every day and look forward to sharing Ahi with you.

A NZ Food Story

We are so proud to introduce you to a brand new TV series that follows Ben as he works towards opening Ahi with a vision that encapsulates the essence of Aotearoa. The question is, what is the New Zealand food story and what does that look like on the Ahi menu? Join Ben and his team as they juggle both the logistics of designing and building the physical restaurant while at the same time travelling the country to seek inspiration and learn more about what the New Zealand food story is and how that will shape the menu.
