They were fully booked (so I would recommend booking) but took our number and said they would call when ready (about 30 minutes). They called back 10 minutes later which was great. The tuna and snapper were so fresh! Great sized dishes and worth a visit.

Tastefull and very convenient Japanese restaurant in the middle of the city center. Sushi meals are freshly made at the counter and you can watch the Japanese chef your meal. Several Sakés available as well.

Lovely, genuine japanese food. you can watch an expert prepare your beautiful sushi if you sit around the bar area. Very casual, like most places in NZ, but the food is genuinely tasty and nicely presented so should keep most people very happy
