Love visiting Daikoku, the food, the show when cooking, the service - it's all great. Yummy food with something for everyone which is great as it was a farewell dinner and catered well for everyone's different tastes.

My first ever authentic Japanese meal and this really hit the spot. Excellent service and food! Dinner with work colleagues after a long day. The Staff are a credit to their employers

Efficient, prompt and friendly service with exceptional food. Loved the theatre of the evening. The only thing that lets this restaurant down a bit is that the décor is tired and areas like the flooring and bathrooms are in need of a refresh.

Daikoku it´s a tipycal Japanese restaurant, located on the harbour area of New Zealand. It´s affordable and has good food. If you enjoy the Tapan services, you could find there. It´s not soffisticated
