Me and my friend came here for dinner and it was so good! The staff were very friendly and helpful as it was our first time here! We rang and booked ahead, and glad we did as it was very busy on a Saturday night. The sushi was a pit pricey, but it was very good, the desserts didn't look... More

There is a unique atmosphere that comes with a Sushi Train, I stuffed my face and lost track of my spend but the vibe of the place made up for the bill! It was great to see the chef make the sushi and other dishes in front of us - do wish their was more chicken options though!

Pleasant wait staff greet you on arrival and seat you in an area of the "train", so as not to have to clean the whole restaurant--no problem with this but please place the clean plate stacks away from me when I am eating. I was all but surrounded by plates as they were brought out from the scullery. Food was... More

We had ordered chicken teriyaki which was very nice and the waitress presented the special of the day which is the King Fish for $6 so we tried that. Turned out the King Fish was really tasty. Good thing e ordered. I would say it's quite cheap for the quality of the food. If you visit Auckland and feel like... More

Choose your own dishes and price points as they pass you on the food conveyor (train) on coloured dishes, with each colour eqjuating to a price point. You control what you eat, and at what price. They will also prepare many extra dishes from the kitchen. The quality is superb, and the food tends to be suitable for a wide... More

We first discovered Sushi Train in 2013 - it was such a good experience we went back their during our NZ trip in 2016. Sushi Train has become a staple of our holiday diet. The ingredients are fresh and the sushi is made in front of you. The choice is extensive and the prices are very democratic. The only downside... More

We went here by accident and like the food and service until almost 1h before the place would close they stopped to put new plates out on the sushi train. Sushi was ok and the staff was very friendly. Would probably dine there again.

Had a really nice lunch here at Sushi Train. Good service by all staff and a good choice of Sushi. The Miso Soup was full of flavour.

Sushi was delicious. The service was great and they were quite well priced. The only negative was the lack of sushi other than seafood. I hate seafood yet it felt like 90% of the sushi was octopus, or prawns, or fish etc. There was very little chicken or vegetarian. I have been to the one in Australia numerous times and... More
