We only had the sushi available for lunch - and this was ok/fresh. The staff were friendly and were happy to make other options and did so for us. There is also a menu so a much more extensive offering is available.

We went to New Plymouth for the weekend and ended up eating here both nights. The food was excellent - fresh, healthy and authentic, but also interesting. Lovely house sake. We spoke to the owner and there is an interesting story behind their arrival in New Plymouth. Highly recommended. If we lived in New Plymouth, it would be our regular,... More

I dropped in while shopping and had a snack. Fresh ingredients, nicely prepared, OK ambiance. I recommend for a shopping-lunch or for take-aways. Not as much for vegetarians as I am used to in Seattle (that hotbed of the non-carnivores) but OK.

I wonder how this restaurant recieved a good Japanese restaurant award. The ramen noodle I ordered was very terrible. It calls pork ramen but there was only one piece of pork and also has poor taste. The noodles was uncook. They sticked together like just brough out from the fridge. And lastly, even the vegetable was also raw. Very disappointed.

We loved our impromptu dinner here! Service was good and we were pleasantly surprised with the seating area as it is more intimate than most restaurants. They have an interesting way of ordering and summoning the wait staff... just ring your bell! This wasn't initially explained to us but if we cared to read the card on the table we... More

I have eaten here a few times. It's always been good. Today I ordered the vegetarian bento box for lunch - it was served without tofu which is why I ordered it (I was told after meal was served and I enquired, that they had run out). I recommended to cashier that it is better customer service to let customers... More

Here for a business lunch - great service and sashimi was fantastic, awesome presentation. The spicy miso soup was lovely - not that spicy but a great flavour to it! Everyone enjoyed their food and in a very relaxed environment.
