I never been to Japan, but this is the kind of quality food that I would like to get when I'll go there. We went two of us 2 weeks ago and we had a fantastic night overall. The food was fresh, cooked to perfection and we enjoyed everything, but the biggest compliments go to the service side. We think... More

The food was pretty good and fresh. I was a bit disappointed by the plum wine as it wasn't as sweet as traditional plum wine I've had in the past. Good atmosphere and delicious green tea ice cream. I couldn't get over how lovely the tuna was!

Ian is a welcoming host and suggested an amazing set menu which was a delightful journey through the very best on the menu. It was a joyous occasion.

Travelling extensively in Asia from my home in Australia, it was more than a pleasant surprise to experience a wonderful set menu meal with business colleagues here, near the famous Eden Park Rugby arena in Kingsland, Auckland. The progression of Sashimi, cooked fish, pork, beef, shellfish and more was capped with a wonderful chilled whole Brocolli spear and crushed sesame... More

A famous Japanese restaurant in Auckland. Staffs are friendly, and it's rare to see that the waiter and waitress are not Korean or Japanese, quite rare to see that in this kind of restaurant. There are not much options in the menu, but the foods are tasty, and sashimi are fresh! The steak is a bit over cooked though.

I've been here several times, and the food is consistently good and the Sake menu is worth a mention in dispatches. There is a good range for vegetarians, although it's worth checking what's in certain dishes if you're not sure. It's not a cheap night out, and it does get busy., so book at weekends or if you have a... More

Good quality food. Big selection of choice on the menu and the vine list as well. Friendly atmosphere. I felt the place was a bit dark for me and overcrowded.

Being in customer service myself I am big on the overall dining experience along with the quality of the food, I cook so well at home it's frustrating to go out for a disappointing meal… This dining experience on a Thursday last week was simply un-equalled! The service was impeccable and the food simply outstanding. Have already raved to friends... More

The place was humming, the vibe cosy and ideal. All the staff had knowledge and smiles. My date was very, very impressed. The food was the best Japanese I have eaten in NZ, without a doubt. Average price. Filling, and well presented. I will now return on a regular basis. Already my raving about the place has sent a dozen... More
