Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food here was delicious and the service lovely. We had the set teppanyaki menus and thought for the price and quality it was really good value. It’s a quiet cozy menu and you can see the chefs working at the grill. All in all...a lovely experience for a family night outMore

This is one of Auckland’s best kept secrets. Delicious, fresh, healthy and lovely chefs. All of the ingredients are of an incredibly high quality, the plates are beautifully presented and the portion sizes perfect, both for lunch and dinner. It’s our family’s absolute favourite.

The two of us dropped in for lunch during the week. The restaurant was rather empty and quiet, so we did not know what to expect. We ordered the prawn lunch dish and were pleasantly surprised by the quality, freshness and presentation! The chef split...the one prawn dish into two, as we wanted a snack rather than a full meal. The chef takes a lot of pride in his work, and the dish was very tasty. The food is not overworked with clean tastes, and sauces decorating the sides. The rice is authentic Japanese rice cooked to perfection. The salad is presented with home made sesame dressing. The service is friendly and unobtrusive. Placed at Greenwood’s corner it is an outstanding restaurant which you would expect to find in the city harbour area or trendy Ponsomby area. Definitely recommend this restaurant.More

Possibly one of the most over-rated eateries. For the price set for main courses, and the simplest form of cooking / portion sizes involved, this is got to be one of the most highly priced local places to eat out at. Waitresses with language difficulties...is understandable, given the place tries to be authentic. Otherwise, clean restaurant and well looked after during the evening.More

On 8.4.18 we went there for dinner, four adults and two children. We had teppanyaki Nelson King salmon, steaks including a Wagyu steak. We were sitting in front of the Japanese chef from Kyoto. He was so friendly and passionate. He really enjoyed cooking the...dinner for us and all his other customers. We were there for about an hour. Although he was so busy in cooking he was all smiles. Other staff were polite, friendly and efficient too. Although the restaurant was very small, its ambience was quite relaxed and nice. They premises including its toilet were very clean. I would give 5 fives for all others except a 4 star for the premises.More

Had the salad, miso soup, prawns w/scallops and filet. All was freshly made and the steak was amazingly tender and tasteful. Lovely dipping sauces. It is a small place with one grill and a few tables so prob need reservation. We did not and got...right in, but it totally filled up right behind us. Highly recommend.More

Ambience, food, service, everything just right. A small authentic Japanese restaurant with attentive service, but not overbearing, with food that is delicious, fresh and excellently presented. Sat at the teppanyaki bar where we could watch the chef cook our food which added to the atmosphere....We both enjoyed a Japanese Set which included premium miso soup with a prawn and crispy salmon skin, a plate of 8 tasters (small bites) and a choice of a main. I chose prawns and scallops which were excellent as were my husband's choice of salmon. I finished with ice cream which was part of the Set and my husband paid an extra $5 and ordered creme brûlée. All and all an excellent meal and would thoroughly recommend it. The Set cost $46 each. This is the second time we have eaten here.More

This is a small genuine Japanese restaurant in Epsom. All the staff are Japanese and of course in typical Japanese style are friendly and polite. The chef cooks in front of you which I always enjoy, especially as I was here by myself on business....I ordered the steak which came with steamed vegetables and a cauliflower puree. Well presented and cooked and very enjoyable.More

We been there for 4 times during our 6 months stay in Auckland. Never once it has disappointed us. Decent potion (that what Japanese portion is I believe) but with quality ingredients. We love how Chef Ryo is so passionate about preparing delicious food combining...artistic preparation into his dishes. We have visited 2 others high rank Restaurant in town with flashy flaming show but the food are so disappointed. We have left Auckland now but no doubt we will come back here if we ever visit Auckland again.More

Went down for dinner and after a 3 course meal, came out still hungry. The quality of food MUST improve and certainly the portions especially for the prices they charge. A small joint having just 2 Chefs who multitask in between and 1 waiter does...not help with the delayed service. Overall 5/10More
