As we went in, it felt as if stepping into a dining place in Japan. We loved the delicate foods, we inclined to think they have the best prawn tempura in Auckland! We have been for both a la carte and using grab-one vouchers. Both experience were amazing. Our family who went with us using the grab-one vouchers were equally... More

Went to this restaurant on Wednesday night, a gift from my dear friend for a special birthday. We had a seven course dinner. Beautifully presented, all delicious. Tried some things such as eel which have never had before. Service very prompt. Had a nice bottle of NZ Pinot Gris to accompany meal. Mostly Japanese people in the restaurant. Will definitely...

Attracted by the captioned remark, bumped into this Japanese restaurant serving great food. Ingredients are fresh, service good and fast and NZD60 for a 7-course Christmas dinner! Excellent value for money :)

I'd forgotten this place existed, but I'm so glad it does. We shared the deep fried squid tentacles, prawn and vege tempura, grilled squid and it was all fabulous. Save room if you can for dessert - we had a wonderful honey and ginger creme brulee to finish. Needless to say, we'll be back (and soon too I think).

I had bought a GrabOne voucher for two people which gave us a degustation menu at a very good price and we had a memorable meal that was of excellent quality.

My favourite Japanese restaurant in Auckland downtown. Once one of my NZ friends took me to this place and since then it became a must for me - whenever I was in Auckland I used to have a lunch or a dinner there and the meal was absolutely impeccable -juicy, fresh and tasty. It's a pity the restaurant working hours... More

I came here for lunch. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the food served was fresh and tasted fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, my teriyaki salmon was cooked to perfection.

this restaurant has all Japanese staff and almost Japanese customers. I am very glad to have dinner here for many times. I have been to this restaurant many times with different friends and family members, and all of them have a joyful time here and good feedback to this small place. The service stuff is really thoughtful and the dishes... More

Sharaku is situated inside a building compound; signs are rather small for the location. I love the Japanese feel of greetings & hot towels prior to a meal. For the 5-course dinner at Sharaku, we started with a trio of appetizers - interesting & enjoyable, but not particularly good in taste. Then came sushi & sashimi - again, nothing very... More
