We were visitors in the USA and our children insisted on going to a suchi restaurant instead of trying a prime rib at Morton's. I had to find a restaurant using Tripadvisor and we decided on this small cafe. We had already eaten suchi in, at lest 20 different countries of Europe but, honestly speaking, I hardly ever ate such... More

The sushi here is always fresh. It's a nice neighborhood place that could expand to accomodate the frequent long lines and waits.The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The restaurant features an expansive sushi menu. The hot Japanese food is also good. Having traveled often and lived in NYC, there is only one other place that I've been in the... More

I saw the reviews for this restaurant and had to come here when I was in town. It is an unassuming restaurant in a strip mall, small, no more than 30 tables, three dog night, the kinks and other classic rock bands on the speakers, so I t was my kind of place. I ordered the philly roll, spider roll... More

We've been here many times, and the fish is always amazing and fresh. We've gone to other sushi places in Charlotte that are considered "the best", but are usually disappointed when we compare the quality of the sushi to New Zealand Cafe. Highly recommended! Remember that it's a very small restaurant, so prepare to wait on weekends.

Sushi is awesome, maybe some of the best in Charlotte. Other choices for grilled food, but most folks were eating sushi, sashimi or rolls. Service was very good, even our waitress who had just started did a good job. They would've gotten excellent but had no New Zealand wines. Gotta have some Marlborough reds and whites! Eating area is small... More

I have been to New Zealand Cafe at least five times, each with the same result - excellent service, excellent food. The price is right, and the portions are generous. Keep in mind, this place is very small - so either go on an off time, or prepare to wait, or order to go.

The staff and sushi chefs are all wonderful. Everything on the menu is wonderful! Fresh fish, and they will custom make you a roll if asked to. The meals are great and cheap. Good variety!

Popped my sushi cherry here 5 years ago and always come back for their great service and wide variety of rolls. They include a lot of the "higher quality" ingredients that you expect from more expensive rolls which I like. Also have a great variety of authentic nigiri i.e. squid, quail egg, baby octopus. Very good rolls. The only downside... More
