Torrential rain has hit parts of Auckland's North Shore with reports of flooding in some areas.

Darryn Forbes, manager of Takapuna's Cafe Massimo, said large amounts of water flooded parts of the property around 1.40pm with a deck full of lunchtime customers moved inside.

Stormwater drains had flooded because they are too narrow, he said.

"It was like a river."
