“The most exhilarating dining experience in Auckland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

On Friday nights at 7:30pm this restaurant features an amazing live Japanese drum group. Be careful as it uses strobe lighting.

The plastic chopsticks were too slippery so we swapped to wooden ones. Our entree was vegetable tempura and beef skewers. For main, we tried the chili chicken and beef steak with rice. The food was very moist, tender and delicious. The miso soup was the best we have ever tasted. The final surprise was the low cost of the total bill. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

A friend of mine who works in the CBD discovered Kushi a little while ago and we have been there for lunch several times recently. The service is great, friendly and efficient. The lunch set for $10 comes with miso soup is excellent value, the two sushi pieces in the set is not great but won't complain. Nice environment with different types of tables and seating not seated close to each other, this is place is great for lunch or dinner.
