This is a very good Japanese restaueant. We ordered the dinner sers salmon and beef and both were excellent. The staff was very friendly. The only strange thing was the choice if music. Kinda dancemusic which is a strange combination with Japanese food. But as it was not too loud it did not matter too much.

Honestly, if I lived in Auckland I would have been back already. It’s one of those places you could walk past and not give a second thought, however the restaurant is larger than it looks from the outside and it’s much, much nicer than it looks from photos I had seen online. The staff were delightful and the menu offered... More

Went here on business and was very happy with the meals. The price is reasonable and the food is well presented and delicious. Definitely worth a look if you haven't been already.

We have attended this restaurant numerous times & had been very impressed with the food, service & great staff. This time we went on spur of the moment so did not book. Suddenly we were treated like second class citizens! We asked for a booth seat @ 7.30pm & were told these were all fully booked for 8pm. All except... More

Great Japanese food. The service is impeccable. As you would expect from a nice Japanese restaurant, the food is beautifully presented and tasty. The Tapoyaki will always be my favourite. Tempura meals are huge so be careful.

We ordered the teriyaki chicken dinner meal and it was so delicious! A lot of food so don't worry about the size portions. The service was quick and easy too, only slight language barriers when we asked for more ginger and water. We sat in a quiet little booth which was quite romantic and thoughtful when we booked ahead that... More

Fantastic food, lovely décor and good prices (lunch anyway). Only downside was music a bit loud which made it a bit difficult to talk. Would definitely recommend!
