Thanks so much for providing an awesome night with wonderful gluten free options including tempura prawns. The Kauri platter was amazing and the non GF eaters loved the dragon roll and squid. The beer smelled awesome and the non GF drinkers loved the taste. Well done we will definitely be back.

Wafu is a small bistro that offers exquisite Japanese food either at a table or at the chef's bar. The service is nicely paced and friendly, and the menu is varied so you could just have a snack or a banquet! There is also a nice range of sake and other Japanese alcoholic drinks.

If you are looking for real Japanese Sushi, this is the best option in region.
Many place are doing too much occidental influenced sushi, Sushi master Yuki in Wafu Bistro makes wonderful authentic sushi. His passion, fresh products carefully selected by him, and his knife skill make miracle on his dish.
If you love to experience real Japanese sushi experience, you cannot miss this restaurant.
If you can sit on sushi bar-counter and watching his knife performance, that is another bonus.
Highly recommended.
