First visit in march; Great dinner and love it.
Visited again for lunch today; this fusion Japanese food didn't disappoint and really worthwhile to keep coming back. The lunch is cheaper than many food courts!
This restaurant will be in top ten soon for sure...

We went to Kushi with friends and looked for dishes we could easily share so that we had a wide range of items tasted.
Although there were maybe "fresher" options (without deep fried pieces) we decided to go for the best shareable wich was easy to find because Kushi offers approved dinner sets.
As the prices were really low, I didn't expect much. But I was so wrong. The dishes were really tasty and with a great variety, way enough of dips, and we have had enough.
The restaurant is located centrally and decorated nicely with a japanese touch.
We paid NZD 180 for a four person's dinner with 2 starters, 4 dinner sets, drinks and a big pot of Sake - in Switzerland we would have paid almost the double for a similar dinner!

Really enjoyed our meal the food, service and location excellent. We had a booth which felt lovely and private even though the restaurant was quite busy.

Cannot praise this restaurant enough. All our party members were unanimous.
We were greeted at the door by the manager who chatted while the table was prepared for us. The restaurant is attractive and welcoming - all the staff smile and greet you. The tables are arranged for privacy, we only overlooked one table from our booth.
The menu is extensive making choices difficult and relies on patient waitresses!
We had plum wine, lychee wine and a Sapporo. The wines were delicious.
We had a fairly full selection from different sections of the menu; Miso soup, sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, tempura, rice, and more - all were equally outstanding. As expected from Japanese restaurants the presentation was superb.
Service was delightful, prompt, efficient yet unhurried. We felt we were well attended and looked after.
The bill for three at $85 was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here based on reviews from tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It's quite a large place with great ambience. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was good too. Will definitely return.
