Saturday 24 September 2016

The Auckland Branch YHANZ will be going to the Angus Steakhouse restaurant, 8 Fort Lane, Auckland CBD on Saturday 24 September, beginning at 5:30pm.

The Angus Steak House chooses to provide only prime New Zealand breed Angus beef prepared on a sizzling hot plate and served with a variety of salads and side orders of your choice. Our restaurant is set out in a friendly relaxing ambience suitable for all ages, direct off street disability access is available. There are public car parks nearby as well as pay & display parking options within the vicinity.

Travel: The Angus Steakhouse is an easy walking distance from Britomart and accessed by bus, train and ferry, so carpooling will not be arranged. Fort Lane runs between Customs St and Fort St. There is an entrance for disabled guests only on Commerce St. 

Menu items:


Each person must spend a minimum of $9, and the $39-90 Main Course is not allowed to be shared.

This is strictly One Account Per Table, which means you will need to pay in Cash only and all Money will be collected at the end of the meal. To make it easier to collect the payments and ensure you pay the correct and exact amount, please bring some of each denomination of Coins and Banknotes. It will help to bring pen and paper and note down each item as you order it with the price, and total up the price afterwards using your phone's calculator, as this will save considerable time on collection. 

Bookings please to myself phone 09-630 4073 or by Wednesday 21 September, or sooner if all places are taken. Places are limited, first in first served, and many of these have already been taken.
