Ezumi is our favourite Japanese/Korean restaurant in Whangarei and it's our daughter's choice for her birthday. The restaurant has a very relaxed feeling to it and the menu is excellent. I usually have a bento box but decided to try the chilli beef donburi, which was really tasty. My son raved about his sushi.

The night began with great service from a lovely lady. Then we started off with the beef tataki which was nothing short of perfection followed by a teriyaki chicken bento box well worth the pricing. Topped the night off with their affogato dessert. Overall a delightful experience.

Want with a group with a wide age range. Everyone left happy. They have an extensive menu and their bento boxes are great. The tempura was great!

Sad to report Ezumi is no longer a nice place. It is dirty and the food is tasteless. Thought last time they had a bad day but it's now been three bad experiences in a row. We will not return.

We love Japanese food and the food here does not disappoint. We ordered a Teriyaki Bento Box and a Chicken Katsu. Both were lovely and well presented. Customer service was great with a lovely friendly hostess. There was a 45 minute wait for the food, but we considered that reasonable as we were warned from the start that there might... More

Timing was out tonight and we were told that our food could take some time (restaurant didn't have that many in there). we didn't mind as conversation with our friends was great. Starters came out staggered and with a bit of a wait, the pork was tough and fatty, the rest of the starters very good. All the mains came... More

I was tremendously disappointed in this restaurant. I tried to eat there twice, based on a recommendation from a friend. The first time they said their kitchen was over-worked / under-staffed and they weren't taking any more tables. The second time I went, they said it would be a 45-minute wait. I went next door to the Bank Social Club... More

Great traditional Japanese food. Although the service was a little slow, the quality of the food made up for this and an enjoyable evening was had. I would definitely go back next time we are here.

Best Japanese we've been to in the north. Highly recommend. The food was great and the service also. Everything was fresh and tasty and a nice relaxing atmosphere. We will be back often.

This is the second time I've been to Ezumi in the last few weeks and both experiences have been lovely. I've ordered the chicken katsu donburi twice and both times it has been delicious. The starters have been good too. However, both times I have gone, the restaurant has seemed quite empty - I'm surprised why this isn't a more... More
