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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Popped in for a quick casual sushi lunch. Perfectly lovely self selection sushi eaten at their own tables outside. You pick individual pieces into your own box. A good range but no shasimi

Clean and appealing display of sushi. Friendly service. Prices around what you would expect to pay for sushi. Was charged for soy sauce and ginger which thought could have been included in the purchase.

Average sushi and highly priced. 1cm slices of sushi for $1.90 each. The whole menu is priced approximately 30-40% above what you’d expect to pay for sushi. Does not have tap and go payment facility either so make sure you remember your pin if you...choose to come to this expensive take away.More

After a day on the beach walked by Avo Sushi and was persuaded by the sushi chef at the door to try his sushi - "freshest in New Zealand", he said. Ordered - paid - and upon opening the box a few steps away dry...and crunchy rice, brown avocado and stale fish told me otherwise. That was the first time I left sushi on the plate. Avoid.More

Sushi is horrendous. Doesnt taste fresh, the rice was horrible, way overpriced. Asked the person what was in the fried sushi and all she can tell me was she doesnt know, maybe salmon or chicken with rice. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Never...coming back to this, not even good for a snack as it is so overpriced.More

Really delicious specialised sushi like nigiri and Inari, there normal sushi is nice but there isn’t a big range of it and it’s pretty pricey for what it is. However I do get that this is a summer hotspot so people will pay the price.

Came across this place and thought we'd go in as it looked really good from the outside - and very glad we did! You can pick your own sushi from the display. Being vegan we chose many different veggie rolls including a shitake mushroom nigiri,...avocado nigiri and a vegetable rice wrapper. It was all so delicious and fresh and well worth the visit. Would highly recommend.More

They have a great variety and range of sushi, the sizes are not all that big (that is possibly due to the tourist area so everything else is slightly not as good for value for food) Still highly recommend going here, as the sushi is...still great!More

Had this on 2 occasions - fuss-free and you'll get to pick using thongs the food items that you want. Not of the highest quality or the cheapest, but they were rather tasty - the spicy chicken sushi, terriyaki chicken roll, salmon avocado sushi were...all fine.More
