We had dinner at this restaurant when at the cricket at Eden Park and were pleasantly surprised.I worked for a Japanese multi national and know good Japanese food when I eat it .The salmon sashimi was excellent and we had Terriaki which again was excellent all washed down with a glass of Sapporo beer! I cant think of anything better.

the staff is very polite, always with a smile on their face, made us feel very welcome. The food was delicious, excellent quality fish, beautiful presentation. The only thing that could be better was the rolls, the seaweed was quite rubbery.

If you enjoy Japanese the food is fantastic. Only downside is the place is so dimly lit, it can be a bit difficult to read the menu. Overall an enjoyable experience

Been here about 5 times in the last year and look forward to it every time. There are some great Japanese restaurants in Auckland but this one is my favourite so far, staff are very friendly and the food is lovely, service has always been quick even when it is very busy. Will be going again in a few weeks.

Went here with my girlfriend for my birthday. The staff were exceptional and by far the best part of our dinner. They were so friendly and very happy to help with a never fading smile. The food was fantastic, with a great selection. Very reasonably priced and served quickly. We went on a Wednesday night so it wasn't very busy.... More

A group of us (including 2 vegetarians) when out to eat and figured this would be a good compromise. Drinks were good. We had a lot of starters. None of which wowed me... most were just average. The waiter never came back to ask us if we wanted main courses. We were legit full anyway but after waiting figured... the... More
