Tried to order a set menu for two and wanted to substitute salad with equal value. Was not possible! We ordered something of a lesser value instead. The portions were small, it was not enough (none of us three is a big eater!), fish was substituted with chicken without announcement! Service did not come back to table to check, we... More

I popped in for lunch, enjoyed it so much I returned the next day. Teriyaki chicken the visit, which was very nice, but the next day had the chicken karage and green salad, with a side of deep fried tofu. Had four large pieces of thigh meat perfectly cooked with a nice oyster / mayonnaise sauce. Really enjoyable. The tofu... More

The food is not bad, but their service makes me feel unwelcome. I was uncomfortable in every minute I ate my lunch in this restaurant. I don't recommend it if you expect a happy atmosphere.

Nice little Japanese restaurant. Quick service and good food at great prices. Thoroughly enjoyed Japanese cocktails range. Would return and recommend to anyone looking for a hassle free Japanese dining experience.

I got the Minami Special and my wife got a sushi bento and it was really good. I had so much food but finished it all because it was tasty. Also got the Agadeshi Tofu and Miso Soup. Good sushi and Japanese cuisine in the town center.

The food was great in taste and for NZ standard, I think it's worth the price. The waiter and waitress were friendly. WiFi was working smooth.

Stopped in for a lovely late lunch/early dinner. Restaurant was fairly quiet but the kitchen was busy prepping for the night ahead. Really friendly waitress who was helpful enough to show us our order from the main menu was very similar to a lunch special at a third of the price. Excellent chicken kutsu curry with a beautiful sauce and... More

For $10 you get the choice of several lunch plates with miso soup. Curry katsudon and chicken teriyaki were very good. Can't beat the quality food at this price near the Octagon where soooo many tourist traps exist. Just a nice hearty meal in a small place. Well done!

Been here twice, both times had bad experiences. Asked for a small request to get the teriyaki chicken put on udon noodles instead of on rice. They said "we can't do this". Something so simple, both ingredients are on the menu. Waitress dropped a dish of bbq on my friends lap.. Was hilarious! Food came out pretty quick.
