I had family members from out of town who had never dined at a Japanese restaurant. Well they were in for a treat!! We ordered a variety of dishes and they were all as wonderful as the next. The service for the night was great with pleasant staff who were very attentive.

We ate on a Saturday evening, when restaurant would have been half full. Staff attentive and pleasant, but service quite slow. We had to send back our 2nd Asahi as it was tepid at best, compared to the 1st one that was excellent. Food very good especially the raw fish

Mairangi Japanese Cuisine is our go-to Japanese restaurant on the north shore. The food is delicious, authentic and consistently great every time we dine here. A lovely little local restaurant, suitable for couples and families.

Overseen by Jay the owner who trains his staff very well and we always have a really good experience as well as a few laughs. The food choice is great and... More

Mairangi is a wonderful place to dine. The service is always exceptionally friendly and caring. The cost is not exuberant. The food is of a very high quality. An enchanting setting. Highly recommended.
