inspired asian cuisine

"This is my secret base I only share with my family and friends.
When I say see you at our favorite, they know I'm talking about Black Rice."
est. | 2017
A little bit of Ponsonby in Albany, Black Rice brings Chinese techniques and the zingy street food of South-East Asia together over cocktails.
Every plate achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of freshness and sophistication — even dessert.
Spices from the mountainous southwest region of China and zingy herbs from the picturesque plateau of South-East Asia, combined with locally sourced fresh produce to make every dish a WOK of art.
Our legendary cocktails are probably the best on this side of the bridge. Between the Bluebird, the Virgin Lychee Mojito and Tokyo Club, we reckon the hardest part about coming in to visit us will be deciding what to drink first.
