In many ways, Auckland’s Sky Tower reminds me of Sydney’s Centrepoint Tower – the comparisons are obvious. For one, they are both towers, and secondly they both have revolving restaurants. While visiting Auckland, I went to Sky Tower’s revolving restaurant, “Orbit” for dinner with Louise.
I couldn’t help but compare it with Centrepoint’s restaurant called “360”, and I’m afraid to say 360 wins. Really what let Orbit down was the food, for an expensive restaurant I have high expectations, but I was disappointed that the lamb I ordered was dry and tough. Definitely not worth the hefty price tag.
That said, it’s an awesome view from up high, especially when you’re caught in the middle of a rain cloud, that was an interesting experience.
