“Worth to try”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

This little Japanese restaurant in the middle Auckland city offers a very good lunch value meal. Beside the food is reasonable cheap, they are tasty and reasonable volume. Staff are very friendly and prompt. Comfortable place too

“Great small Japanese cafe”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

The Don is a great little Japanese cafe with reasonably prices meals, good music and great vibes. If you are looking for an up market dining experience; look elsewhere. If you want a good meal in basic, but pleasant, surroundings, this is the place. The clientele is generally Japanese students, the food is tasty and the staff friendly; what more can you ask for? Try a selection of small dishes for variety. The pan fried gyoza are moist and tasty. The mixed veggies with chile and garlic and the tofu steaks are both delicious.
