This is the most affordable sushi in Charlotte that we've found. The quality of the fish is great and all the rolls we tried are wonderful.

We have been going for years, any time we have ever had a problem they are very quick to fix it. The service is always great and the sushi is awesome. I love my raw traditional sushi but my husband and children love the tempura...More

Its no longer a hidden gem, I recommend getting take out due to the size of the restaurant and the amount of people that line up each night! Excellent Sushi!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our friends. The food is fantastic, regardless what you will order. The only thing is that the service is a bit slow, so plan to enjoy a conversation and bring an appetite.

Love this place so much! Kathy is amazing. Always remembers us, and our sweet teas and squid salad. The sushi is fresh, delicious, and affordable. Service is always stellar. New Zealand Cafe is one of Charlotte's best kept secrets.

I remember when this was a great restaurant. Maybe I just visited on an off day. The food was OK. They were busy but I got my food in a reasonable time.

This is our place for sushi, the staff are great and the chefs rock! Try the Mexican roll, crowded at lunch but worth the wait.
