This restaurant is usually closed on a Sunday so finding it open on Fathers Day was hopefully a sign they are planning to open most Sunday's now. The lunch special is amazing value- selection of 2 dishes which are served with Miso and salad for $30ish each. My partner and I both had Sashimi and it was amazing. He had... More

The menu was simple but had an extensive range, as you can choose which meat you prefer. I liked the very open kitchen. the atmosphere was good! $12.50 for a filling meal :)

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.

We stopped in for lunch. If you have seen any of my other reviews you will note that authentic japanese is my preference having lived there.I agree with others not the prettiest of settings. I also agree that prices are very reasonable. The food was variable. Seafood was not cooked authentically in my partners bento. My udon was not fresh... More

My husband and I had been in Auckland for the tennis, we decided to go for a walk to find dinner and stumbled across this little restaurant. A sign out court my eye and down the little staircase we went. With a pleasant surprise the place had a group of about 20 Japanese people eating. That was it, we had... More

Although it's not the most glamorous setting inside- the food well makes up for that. The Teriyaki Tofu is delicious! Really decent portions.

We come here almost weekly... the food is that good. It's nothing overly spectacular, it looks good and appeals to the eye, but the flavour is what's really fantastic. The food is very affordable (around $12 per meal, $5 entree's) considering the portion sizes. We just can't get enough!

This restaurant is busy, and for good reason. This japanese restaurant has something everyone will like. The food is beautifully delievered and tastes even better. Great for thise who are looking for a meal before heading off into the night, it is quick. The atmosphere is busy, we were lucky to have a table but that adds to the experience.... More
