Nanny's Eatery - Kingsland Restaurant, Whiskey and Rum Bar

Nanny’s Eatery offers authentic Jerk Chicken & Pork Belly, cooked by a Yardie right here in the heart of Kingsland (not Kingston!)


Come and experience the authentic, aromatic, delicious food from the Islands, with a Jamaican and Mexican infusion to bring you a taste so delicious that you will have no words to describe it.

JP, your head chef was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and brings with him a deep-rooted soul food flavour born from years spent learning the secrets of the Caribbean spice from his GramMa.

Nanny’s origin story is a story of the heart. Two hearts captured by the beautiful song of Island love and culminated into a humble establishment named after one of Jamaica’s Seven Heroes, Nanny.


Read about JP and his Queen’s journey and how Nanny’s Eatery came to Kingsland.

Rich food, Reggae, and Rum

Step off Kingsland’s main street and into another world where your senses will be met with the songs, tastes, and joys of real island flavours.


Partake in the experience of the best fried chicken in Auckland with our traditional Jamaican way of preparing your feast paired with the perfect drink to enhance the flavours and the mood.


We are right in the middle of Kingsland, 400 meters away from Eden Park and a quick drive from the Auckland Viaduct Restaurants and Auckland Viaduct Bars. We have some of the best reggae live music in Auckland with DJs bringing the soul of the Caribbean to your experience.


If you are looking for a Caribbean go-to restaurant serving fried chicken near you or a quick fried chicken takeaway we’ve also got you covered. You can phone in your order or come and enjoy a cold one whilst your food is being flame-grilled.

We have also got a special place in our heart for our four-legged friends and we are a dog-friendly Auckland restaurant and bar. Let JP or Ange know that you’ve bought your furry friend along and they will give them something special.
