Queens Wharf Village will be welcoming three new food providers over the coming weeks.

St Pierre’s Sushi, Cinta Malaysian and Kapai are moving into the container village, along with convenience store Grab ‘More. They will join New Zealand’s oldest and longest running mobile food provider, The White Lady, who moved into the village last month.


Wellington-based fresh produce salad, wrap and more bar, Kapai, will make their Auckland debut at Queens Wharf Village.

“Kapai stemmed from wanting to create a healthy food option, using only New Zealand’s freshest home-grown produce. The village is a perfect fit for us, it has a real ‘kiwiana’ feel to it; it’s unique, it’s collaborative, it’s Kiwi ingenuity and it’s a celebration of being a New Zealander”, says Auckland Kapai Manager Rebecca Woolfall.

St Pierre’s Sushi

Family owned and run St Pierre’s Sushi moved into Queens Wharf Village this week.

“We are really excited to be part of the village, and are looking forward to people popping in not only for the fresh food we are known for, but for the whole experience and atmosphere down here” says St Pierre’s Owner Nick Katsoulis.

Creating the village

Queens Wharf Manager Connie Clarkson says Queens Wharf Village is not only a funky and fresh addition to downtown Auckland, but is a reflection of Auckland’s heritage.

“Queens Wharf has a strong history of trade, cargo ships, waka and passenger ships arriving and departing, so we wanted to create something authentic here to reflect this”

“The village itself is made from repurposed containers creating a cargo link, the info kiosk takes you back in time to when soldiers departed from the wharf and women promenaded along it, and local artist Amiria Puia-Taylor’s interpretation of Tāmaki Herenga Waka (Tāmaki – the gatherer of canoes) reflects the true nature of the people’s wharf” says Ms Clarkson.

Queens Wharf Village is made up of a mix of food and beverage providers as well as service-based retailers. It also offers a sheltered outdoor lounging space by the water for the lunch-time crowd.

With five of the eight container tenants confirmed, businesses are being carefully selected to ensure the village has a varied offering for locals and visitors.
