Reviewed 27 May 2014

Its great for a family occasion and a special one too. Good japanese food but could possibly look at Musashi in Milford Auckland for some more ideas...

“Delicious food”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

This is a gem of a place to eat, the staff were helpful and friendly and could cater for different dietary needs. The atmosphere is cosy and the food just plain delicious. Would go anytime I am in New Zealand

“My mothers birthday.”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

They took a very late booking after they learnt its my mothers birthday.

My mother was given a beautifully written birthday card, and the menu was personally presented.

Service and food was awesome.

We just loved it.


Thanks a lot guys we loved it.

“Once again, a great night”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Many thanks to Barbara and her team. Last minute booking on a saturday night at 7 and they were able to accomodate us. Fast service, great food. I enjoy the way Barbara takes the time to check on each table during the night to check on things, not just the menu but truly interested in her customers
