great place for a quick nibble but dont expect any intimate dining here! place is very cramped and seating all kinda meshes into one table due to yakitori style grill, on the plus side Kens Kitchen Cafe is just next door for more of a relaxed restaurant style dining

This is the real thing in Japanese Yakitori - wide range , including some very ethnic parts ! - superbly cooked by a very typical Japanese Yakitori chef - a master of the art ! Free Kabbetsu and ichi mi .Good range of Sake hot or cold .

Natsukashi (Nostalgic) for those who have lived in Japan . A must to visit - open late so great after All Blacks games !

Best we've found in the Country during 5 years living in NZ

As an ex-Aucklander based in Tokyo, Ken Yakitori bar is by far the most authentic Japanese "izakaya" experience I had in NZ. Friendly, relaxed and down to earth atmosphere with a good buzz makes for a great evening. Highly recommend.

The bar has a cosy atmosphere and the food is good. We felt like being back in Japan as everybody is welcomed in Japanese. We had a good time.

Ken yakitori must be my favorite restaurant ever.
The smell of deliciousness is in the air before you even get in, you open the door and all the waiting staff say a loud hello in Japanese.
These people must be the most polite people in the world. You enter the restaurant and you feel you're in Japan.
Food is just AMAZING.
I love love love this place :)
