Have visited this restaurant a couple of times now. I love the freshness of the food and the service is efficient. You also have the option of booking the large room for functions.

From the moment we arrived the service here was unbelievably bad. Harassed to order as soon as we sat down. Starters and mains served simultaneously. Unbelievably we were asked to leave the restaurant at 9.30pm on Friday night as they wanted to close the restaurant?! We won't be back.

Great service, food just awesome! My favourite restaurant, can't recommend it enough . I have taken staff there and used the private dining room, they loved the room and loved the food, and we are going back tomorrow 😀 Very nice service and they don't intrude, nice and quiet, so you can talk.

We eat at a lot of Japanese restaurants and this was without question the worst Japanese food we've ever had

Lovely helpful and friendly service coupled with fresh and tasty food. We had not previously had Japanese food and were grateful for the help in choosing and how to eat our yummy dinner.

My family and I eat here often. The food is lovely and the service is very good. The hardest bit of dining here is trying to work out what to have to eat off the menu.

Nice food and good location in Orewa, Customer service is ok as every time we have been we have to keep asking for water for our table. Communicating with the staff can be a bit of a challenge. Well worth trying though if you like Japanese food. We have been several times and the food is always up to a... More

A gem of a find in Orewa. The owners/staff were so welcoming and bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed. The food was fabulous too!
