I used to frequent this place a lot when I lived in Auckland. Came back on a recent trip and had to return! My favourite is the chicken karaage or the chicken katsu with curry. Prices are reasonable and service is quite prompt. Recommended!

Very basic, slow service, exceptionally poor food. Suspect this experience is rare since there are so many good reviews. On this occasion, it would have been wonderful to have chosen any of the very many other choices in Parnell. So hope your experience is better...More

In a cellar location on Parnell Road, Renkon offers a small menu to have it there or to take away. Super yummy dinner for $ 12.50, e.g. salmon teriyaki. Friendly staff, they cook with love. Jasmine tea for free.

Authentic Japanese food. Prep time was a little long. Some items not suitable for takeaway (e.g., miso soup) since they put in a coffee cup with a cover that had a spout, which spilled a lot. Good food though.
