First visited in February and then went again on the next trip to Wellington. Delicious food, my 6 & 8 year olds love it too. Love the soft shell crab, sashimi boat, tempura, kids love noodles & salmon kebabs Good value for money & they...More

Awesome restaurant, the atmosphere is really authentic. The staff are really nice and always very helpful. I go here a lot, but noticed lately the portions seem a lot smaller and not finished with the same finesse. The takoyaki is still really good though

We miss the ole' Kazu that closed due to the November earthquake. Unfortunately, we tried the wrong thing at this other Kazu location -- an Osaka specialty -- Okonomiyaki. In Japan, it is usually cooked to order & made fresh at your table. Our order...More

I was on my way to the airport and stopped for a quick bite. I had a serve of steamed gyoza and some salmon sashimi. Both were delicious, fresh and tasty and went down very quickly.

Very friendly service. Good food and good price. Gyoza were a bit tasteless but the bento was delicious and fresh. Good place to go on a budget. Sushi is good too. Did have a resident pigeon who was eventually shooed out. Good value meal.

Just had dinner there. Everything we had was really yum - the ramen was the best I've had so far in New Zealand. Everything was very reasonably priced too. My favourite thing was the service though - the waitresses were lovely and I loved the...More

We've been here a few times, always when it's busy sometimes very late at night. We've never been disappointed. The service is casual, efficient, and friendly. There is yakitori, sushi, tempura, udon, ramen, soba and rice on the menu. But the highlight is the yakitori...More
