Every sauce is home made with no MSG. Secret is lots of fresh vegetables and fruit in it. We use super-fresh meats and fish to enhance the quality of dishes.

Great food

The food was really delicious and the price wasn't bad - we paid $50 for 6 different dishes to share. The restaurant is informal and comfortable enough. There was a bit of a mix up with our order and one thing took a long time to come, but it wasn't a problem as we were sharing everything anyway... read more

We sat down to have a meal here then realised we had mistaken the time of a film - it was less than 20 mins away. We explained to the waitress who indicated a dish that could be produced super quick. She got an urgent request to the kitchen and the meal was set before us in a flash. Very... More

Came here with my mum on a cold rainy night. Walked in to a warm atmosphere. Ordered chicken katsudon with miso, takoyaki and hot green tea. Great meal and quick service! Would come back here again when I'm in wellington!!

We got a fabulous fresh lunch here for $13.50 for 2 people! Great sushi, salmon, chicken skewers and prawns. It's a serve yourself place, the lines move quickly with friendly and helpful service . So fresh tasty and inexpensive! Very hygienic too. You can sit inside or outside on a great day on the numerous seats in the mall area.... More

Sushi from anywhere else fails to compare. Wether taking some sushi away or eating from the menu, I'm yet to have a bad experience. It's great that they have opened up multiple resturants around the CBD.

I eat here several times a week. Great, reliable sushi. Lots of options. Everything always tastes fresh. Staff are relatively nice, and they are always very busy.

A must visit for Wellington!! It gets a bit busy around lunch but you don't have to wait more than 5-10 min for food. Really good service. Bento portions are huge!

Great food for a good value. My wife very much liked the sushi a-la-carte here. I had the Chicken Katsu and it was delicious.
