Great start to our NZ sojourn. The Kingfish sashimi is a must!!! Sensational! The oysters were also amazing. Well worth dining in the busy waterfront area.

The restaurant is located a The Viaduct. The food menu, cocktail and wine list are excellent. We had no reservations for lunch, they squeezed us in, the food and the service was fantastic! Highly recommended!

Went to Soul for lunch and it was excellent. The food was fantastic and so was the service. Great range of options on the menu and they were great with gf and df options. Plenty of seafood options which we love.
