We are fortunate to have eaten tepanyaki at a few places in Auckland and overseas.
Katsura has all the elements to make it a truely great place to eat.
It has windows looking out into a lovely Japanese garden. The place has a contemporary feel to it and the service from the waiting staff is perfect.
They have an extremely good Sake menu and the wait staff are knowledgable about their product.
The food was what we would expect.
But there is something missing.WE
go for tepenyaki for the experience and entertainment as well as the food
You expect a few laughs with the chef and to generally have fun.
THAT element was missing.-the FUN
We felt like we needed to speak in hushed tones whilst there.
As in the title It has all the elements to be a truely great place to eat but misses the mark.
If it was the only experience we had of tepan cooking we might not have been disapointed.
We weren't put off enough so we will never return. But disapointed
