Japanese tapas! Didn't what to expect but loved it. Excellent food, excellent service, excellent wines. Yes, it is a bit noisy but we didn't find it intrusive. Just a good, bar type atmosphere. Recommended, especially for a meal shared between friends looking to have a bit of craic.

Although a stroll from the centre, well worth the visit. Sat inside, while outside with the heaters looked nice as well. Good host, awesome dishes to share. Japanese style tapas, all of them were fun for the tongue!

have driven past this restaurant/bar so often and finally had the opportunity to go for lunch there. It was a delight, meal very tasty Japanese small plates. Only disappointment was the oysters were unavailable that day, so we will have to return there for another delicious meal. Parking a problem so allow plenty of time to park car. Maybe the... More

This restaurant was a real surprise! It's like a tapas bar offering small and medium-sized plates of treats to share. Everything we had was FAB! The Japanese Fried Chicken and the Blue Cheese Polenta Fries with Truffle Aioli were our stand-out favorites. Unfortunately, the Vegetable Tempura had already cooled by the time it was served, and I like my tempura... More

We had the most delicious Japanese based small plate dinner. The food service was well paced, delicious and beautifully presented. It had a very broad wine list with some unusual wines. The bar staff were excellent offering advice and allowing a taste before we bought. It was noisy when we arrived, but it was a convivial noise. The dinner area... More

Our daughter-in-law ventured her opinion that we were a tad too old to be frequenting what she thought was a young persons' place, but we went ahead and booked for a Saturday night meal. It was good, and we didn't feel out of place. I was able to tell the waitperson that we'd been there once before; in 1962 to... More

This intimate place is everything...a delicious restaurant, EXCELLENT drinks, awesome sounds with beautiful people. The staff is so chill and attentive. You'll feel like they've been your friend for some time vs a stranger. They have the most diverse and knowledgable drink menu and bartenders in New Zealand, from what I've experienced. The people come with an amazing energy. You'll... More

Delicious food, cocktails and really cool atmosphere. Can get very full in this place in the evenings, so get in early to get a booth and enjoy some good sounds!

We were there for weekday lunch, had some stunning small tasters that we shared. Very good food and the staff are always friendly... we often go at night to listen to music and have a few drinks... only complaint is the food is a tad on the pricey side for the size of the portions.
