Been here many times and sometimes a bit average service. Lunch Friday. Prawns tempura forgotten. Long delay. Sashimi was poor. Thick slices, thin slices and no consistency. Asked for tuna and salmon. Got two tuna’s and one salmon. Not what we asked for. Was very...cold till heating was turned on. Mix up with the seafood supreme ended up with both of us getting same dish even though Sue had asked for a chicken lunch dish. Will look for other alternatives.More

Great atmosphere, and amazing food. We went with a big group and there was something for everyone. Recommend the degustation type set menus ( six to choose from).

I went here with my friend for a Sunday lunch. It has to be one of the best Teppanyaki I have had. Excellent food and lovely place to be.

What a lovely lunch to celebrate the end of 2020. We both had the tempura and beef teriyaki lunchbox. It was all very tasty.

We had high expectations but were told when booking that the teppanyaki tables were full. This meant that we missed the entertainment that goes with the teppanyaki. Initially our waitress was helpful, but she got our order wrong and when dishes arrived that one of...our party couldn’t eat for dietary reasons & her mistake was pointed out she became very rude & ignored our requests for water and dumped the food on the table. The food was superb & the duty manager dealt with the error in the order.More

Visited this place for the first time on Sunday evening and was pleasantly surpised as I never knew it was there. The menu and meals were overall good but there was some concerns with the seafood that we ordered as some of it was overcooked...and a little dry which was disappointing with this type of cooking. Great location and atmosphere but some of the dishes were a little disappointing.More

Great Japanese restaurant with fresh and delicious food and style, lots of choices on menu. My favorite pick was ‘special roll with eel’ but everything was amazing. Really loved the plum wine for a drink.The restaurant was busy on Sunday night but service was excellent,...out waitress Sunny handled her job very well and created a lovely atmosphere. The only thing that we would add for a perfection is for food to be served for a table at the same time because while I was waiting for my starter -my partner was finishing his already and the same was with the mains. Otherwise it was definitely a great dinner , highly recommended and looking forward to come back again .More

My family and I (6 of us with 2 under 6) made a booking with no expectations. We had the most amazing time. The chef was amazing, the food faultless, the children were accepted and treated well. This has been by far the best teppanyaki...we have had in new Zealand by a long shot. I will be back 100%More
