Vibrant and multicultural, Queen Street represents a major commercial thoroughfare in Auckland's central business district. The street begins on the city's waterfront and runs for approximately 3 km (1.8 mi) in a mostly south-southwesterly direction towards Auckland's residential neighborhoods. Named after Queen Victoria, the street is part of the city's main shopping district, flanked by numerous department stores, banks, and restaurant franchises. Head here on foot to see several landmark buildings, including the town hall--a major civic structure from the early 20th century, it features a giant organ, the largest musical instrument in the country.

  • This street is packed with all the shops you'd expect. From tCky souvenir shops to high end clothing stores. There are tiny alleys with trendy restaurants and street performers too. This makes for s g...  read more »
  • It is the main street, I recommend staying on or around this street, at the end of this port. There are a variety of restaurants, shops, on the road is the Tower, which is worthwhile to climb, on that street you can take the bus to the airport.

  • Visited this establishment with three grandchildren today, but never again. It was very crowded but that was OK as it was lunch time and to be expected. However, with one person on the till taking orders, one person presenting the orders and one person trying to keep the tables and venue clean, it was chaotic to say the least. The small number of staff out front were brilliant doing their best working under enormous pressure. SHAME ON YOU MANAGEMENT !!!!!! BAD MANAGEMENT ALL ROUND !!!!! You have a premium location in Auckland in a great building, but in my opinion this franchise is doing a disservice to the McDonalds brand. The eating area was filthy and the toilets disgusting. If I could rate my experience with minus stars I would, but it doesn't allow me to do that.
  • First time visiting a McDonalds in NZ and what the actual f*ck. Heaps of homeless people sleeping inside the restaurant, tables dirty, toilets absolutely disgusting and needles on the floor. The food tasted terrible and the staff didn't even seem to notice. I have never been so shocked in my life. Avoid this McDonalds like the plague.
  • Great place to meet and eat ! Very spacious , free WiFi and has Tele playing music videos for entertainment . Customer service was kind of crap though . But good place to kick it .
  • Its always full of bums that either mutter about to themselves which makes you feel like you've walked into the dining hall of a mental asylum or they constantly beg you for "2 dollaz gee". Staff do their best to clean up and stay sane but its a losing battle they fight. At least the lack of mobile devices these vagabonds have allows for the maccas wifi to be as free from traffic as possible; no loading issues while some tramp streams a youtube video of 'Top 10 cardboard house builds and their application for city dwelling'.
  • Standard McDonalds. Is good place to get some when in town, however, the place can get absolutely filthy during the weekends at night time when all the drunks come in to get a feed. Avoid it like the plague during these times unless you are drunk.
