This was my favorite sushi restaurant in New Zealand so far. The fish was extremely fresh, the salmon sashimi melted in my mouth like butter. We tried out the variety sushi platter, all was very good. Service was quick, polite, and friendly. Definitely recommended!

Food was authentic and tasty - the karaage chicken was crispy, pork Katsu and Teriyaki chicken were very flavoursome. Would definitely recommend.

Walked in without a booking and seated. So many choices and we were given more time without feeling pressured at all. Drinks came out quickly. Dumplings were fried . Still good but personal preference is steamed. Karage chicken very good. Sashimi was the highlight. We...More
