“The most exhilarating dining experience in Auckland”
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 ambience, good food”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

My partner and I have been here several times this year and always enjoy ourselves. Lovely friendly service, a wide variety of delicious Japanese cuisine. And if you are lucky you may even catch an impromptu performance from the Japanese drummers - exhilirating! We love the place which is a good thing seeing as they are just outside our front door.
