We booked at very short notice to dine at 09.30 on Saturday evening and had a truly outstanding meal. Unlike many of the reviewers of this restaurant, I am not a connoisseur of Japanese food and have always presumed that Japanese restaurants would offer small portions at large prices, but that is definitely not the case here! We had the... More

Good fresh food and great service especially for those with kids. The ambience is a little bland which is a shame.

Really friendly staff but let down but the average food and boring setting. For the price you would expect a complimentary tea, miso or... We wouldn't go back.

The first thing you notice in this restaurant is its size; it is really quite big. We were offered a Japanese style table but it has a lot so that you can sit western style and not have to sit cross legged. The food is very good with a good selection of traditional Japanese dishes with some Kiwi bits added.... More

As a person who loves to eat sushi, I was utterly disappointed and am surprised by the high ratings. The sushi rolls were extremely tiny. The spicy salmon and spicy tuna were just a sliver of salmon/tuna in the roll with chili sauce squirted over the top. If I were to sum up the taste: it was rather bland. Perhaps... More

Our family stopped by this restaurant since it was on our way to the hotel. So glad we did!! Sushi was delicious and the Shabu shabu was great and filling. Reasonably priced and service was fast.

We ordered Takeaway dishes on New Years eve as we thought the restaurants in town would be too crazy. Our takeaway was ready in 20 mins was so fresh as well as being delicious.

Don't let the average setting fool you, the good is very very tasty (especially tofu). Friendly staff, reasonable price.

Had dinner with friends and sat at one of the traditional tables. Service was extremely slow to start with as the place was busy and probably not enough staff after NYE. The first dishes we ordered such the sushi, tempura prawns etc were very good but we also ordered beef shabu shabu which is where it went a bit wrong.... More

My family and I visited this lovely restaurant on NYE. We sat at a traditional Japanese table. The sushi was varied, delicious and plentiful. The seaweed salad and chicken teriyaki were also great. Service and ambience excellent. We all loved it.

Thank Ana T
