Very nice Japanese food and sushi in a stylish space on Cuba Street. Food is elegantly presented and there are plenty of vegan options. Only downside is that it is a bit on the expensive side, but worth it if you want Japanese or sushi other than the takeaway places.

Located upper Cuba Street, this is a gem of a Japanese restaurant. Great food, with generous portions. Gluten Free and vegetarian options well provided for.

Service is absolutely professional and meals prepared very promptly.

Great place to have a chat away from the hustle and bustle of Cuba Street.

We are visiting Wellington and since we have our toddler son on this trip, we booked a Japanese restaurant as he loves udon and that would be good on a chilly night like we had tonight. As we were dining early we were the only customers at first with some people taking away their dinners.

We shared their bento box and rainbow roll which were decent serves and tasted fresh. Only minor complaint would be their teriyaki chicken and udon soup base being too sweet. We liked that their tamago nigiri came on purple rice and their tempura that came with the udon was fried well.

Staff were friendly and while they do have nice desserts, we were too full to try.

This was definitely a mixed bag. Took 15 minutes for the drinks ordered to be brought out to us. The entrees were luke warm and the gyoza was soggy to boot. The main was okay and dessert was good. Overall reasonably priced.

Very nice place and excellent food. Don’t forget to taste a dessert. It is different from other on the same neighborhood
