About Us

Every night is an occasion at The Tasting Shed.


With their TV production and directing work determining what country they would live in next, husband-and-wife team Ganesh and Jo lived in many countries before choosing New Zealand as the place to establish roots, raise their daughter and embark on a new career as restauranteurs.

Their vision was to offer the freshest ingredients, accentuate these with an array of wines by the glass, and create an atmosphere which fuels the desire to discover new flavours among friends and family. The Tasting Shed presents a complete experience for the senses. There is no doubt that food tastes better in good company with the right ambience.

Here at The Tasting Shed, Ganesh, Jo and the team are devoted to bringing you the best dining experience Auckland has to offer – an entrée style gastronomic voyage that takes your taste buds on an adventure.

Ganesh and Jo designed every aspect of the restaurant with the goal of making their customers feel like they were dining in an extension of their home. 

We are almost FULLY BOOKED for all lunches and dinners until Christmas, with the exception of a few Wednesday night and Sunday night tables available. So get in quick. 

The Tasting Shed will be closed from Monday the 21st of December and reopening on Wednesday the 6th of January. We wish you a safe and happy festive season! Best Wishes, The Tasting Shed Team.
