The Space

Ahi provides a warm, light filled space designed by Jack McKinney Architects and made to feel as relaxed as if you are in the comfort of your own home. Featuring reclaimed native timber, a woven New Zealand grown Oak ceiling to represent the Kete and handmade plates by Rachel Carter, a West Auckland potter (amongst other beautifully New Zealand elements), Ahi offers an opportunity to explore Aotearoa.

Ahi holds space for 120 guests seated at our dining tables, bar and along the Chef’s Table.

Sitting on Level 2 of Commercial Bay on the corner of Queen Street and Quay Street, Ahi sits as a beacon on the edge of the Waitemata harbour, providing the comforts of home for all those who choose to indulge in an exploration of Aotearoa.


At Ahi, we know no celebration is the same so we provide bespoke experiences for all functions and events. With personalised menus and cocktail lists, our flexible design and comforting space can play home to every occasion, from private dining experiences to cocktail style events with the option to book the entire venue.
