BYO is always a goodie, the food here was absolutely delicious. The menu is huge, and everything we had was delicious, and the service was great, lots of staff who were polite and very attentive. We ordered the tuna sashimi which was really fresh, the pork goyza was cooked on the table which was a bit fun, and a prawn... More

The restaurant is not situated in a famous place, but you have to stop there. The food is just excellent and the staff very friendly.

We are fairly regular diners at Musashi - we also went regularly in its earlier reincarnation Eiji's. Over the years it has pretty much maintained its atmosphere and quality. The menu has changed over the years while still offering the Kiwi favourites in various guises. Teriyaki chicken anyone?! The teenagers were suddenly out for the evening so the wife (who... More

Great food. Particularly loved the salad with its subtle sesame dressing. The staff are knowledgeable, attentive, friendly. The only problem: serving dishes together to our small party. A gap of five minutes between some being served and the others receiving their food is, frankly, unacceptable. No excuses. It was early evening and the restaurant not busy. Sorry, guys, you'll have... More

Yes it can feel like a crowded space and yes you should book ahead, but to me that is a good indicator of how good the restaurant is and negates any inconvenience. The staff are lovely, attentive and good at helping to decide how much food to order. The food is so fresh and tasty with unique touches - the... More

We're lucky having this restaurant literally at our doorstep, which means we get to enjoy it both for sit down meals and takeaway. It's a family favourite, great menu, excellent food, good service. It's always busy, there are never spare tables. Tip.. Book in advance!

Description
To owner and Chef, Satoru Aoki, nothing is more important than the quality or freshness of his food and he is therefore deeply involved with the overseeing of all ingredients within MUSASHI's menu.MUSASHI not only presents its guests with fine seasonal ingredients and good choice of local wines, it also treats diners to traditional Japanese refreshments such as Sake and Shochu, and beverages.We believe in catering to all individuals' needs and requirements and therefore the menu generously includes choices for those who prefer Wheat Free or Vegetarian options. With many excellent reviews and compliments on MUSASHI dining experience, the staff and team at MUSASHI endeavour to retain that reputable status by providing visitors with exceptional cuisine and impeccable hospitality, every time.At MUSASHI our main goal is to provide you with a well blend of Japanese fusion cuisine, good service and value-for-money dining experience in Auckland where quality is the focus.
