The start wasn't great. The 4 of us were placed at a table where a couple were already dining and yet the 4 behind us at the door (also no booking, we heard that clearly) were seated at a free table. The service was cheerless, to the point of being rude. The food was quite good. The fish was fresh but at these prices surely it would be unforgivable if it wasn't. The sashimi was not all well cut, so some of it had to be chewed to bite through the sinew. Same with some of the fish on the sushi. The rice was nice. Off the top of my head I could name half a dozen Japanese restaurants in Auckland which are so far superior to this place it isn't funny, so I am surprised by the high scores for this place on TA, but maybe we are just fortunate here in Auckland.
