we love eating here - clean, good service, and great food - I would recommend booking as they are often really busy. No wonder as its a great place - we often take the kids and there is plenty to choose from on the menu - YUM!

and this was a very good selection at reasonable prices. Bonus: BYO with an excellent corkage fee, so we could enjoy one of our better bottles of wine. Only problem, a bit of a language barrier, that meant we ended up with more tempura vegetables and less sashimi than we thought we'd ordered... but the service was certainly with a... More

The food at Yaruki was terrific - really interesting and very tasty. The service, however, left something to be desired. The staff were friendly enough, but quite inefficient. This probably wasn't helped by the fact that we were the only people seated upstairs - I think they probably forgot we were there!

Japanese restaurants are popular in the Henderson area - located just outside the Westfield shopping mall, its a great restaurant with delicious bento boxes that serve fresh food - their Sashimi bento box is great for value! Will be back again!

We celebrated our daughter's birthday here whilst she was in Japan and considered this appropriate. What meals, what service, what size, what smiles we got and all at a reasonable price!

This was a nice little restaurant that we stumbled upon. It has a mixture of Korean/Japanese food. We had chicken, salmon and surf and turf "hot plate" meals. Although, they were all similar and we all enjoyed our dinners. Waitresses were very attentive.

What a great place, the Chef was positively beaming. We were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent, extras were fully catered for and they all went the extra mile. We were a large party of 7 and had booked the wrong restaurant with the same name on the other side of town in error, so this why... More

An amazing restaurant, perfect for couples or families. The menu is what you expect from a Japanese restaurant in Auckland, but it delivers perfectly. Everything is done with so much care, the chef comes out in person to ask you if you are enjoying your meal. They get very busy almost every night so it is worth to book in... More
