We came here with my nephew who loves Japanese food and we ordered a bunch of different dishes ‘izakaya’ style. Everything was cooked beautifully but the stand outs were the takoyaki, salmon sashimi and fried karaage chicken. The service was good and the only thing...that let it down was the fact it wasn’t so busy so lacked a bit of atmosphere. It would be good to go back on a busier night.More

Have often wanted to go here. Today we went with friends. They had booked a table a wise move. It was steady busy for a Sunday lunchtime. Staff excellent food absolutely delicious. I noted there seemed to be a lot of regulars, I can understand...why. The lunch sets are great value for money and food portion excellent. Will be going back soon.More

It's in a small mall and was difficult to find if you were not a local. The food came promptly once the order was in. The dishes were all nice and fresh. It was an enjoyable dinner with friends.

Very difficult to find a better Japanese in Christchurch, just a shame it is not closer to our home. Service was at its usual standard and the food was fresh as, and superbly presented. I did particularly enjoy the Crumbed Prawns and Deep fried Squid....Will be back soon.More

Went for dinner, had the salmon sashimi and the beef sirloin steak first which were both amazing! My partner got the Groper nigiri and i got the prawn nigiri which were both so fresh and full of flavour. We shared the teriyaki chicken roll too....Will definitely be coming back!!More

One of our favorites, never had a bad meal here. The assorted Sashimi was lovely and fresh, and i cannot say enough about the Salmon Steak which was succulent and cooked to perfection. Being BYO and in the Entertainment book makes the meal etc very...reasonable.More

We are regulars for the lunch menu. The lunch box and a fried chicken curry for the partner. Seriously can’t beat it, always fresh, always perfect. Staff very approachable and responsive. Will continue to frequent often for a treat.
