An entertaining & interactive evening, great atmosphere & food was delish. Our waiter was fantastic, always attentive when we needed drinks. Nice choice of set menu or choices for separate entrees & meals. Good choice is the set menu if you don't know how it works (our waiter again, explained very well). Would recommend for a birthday party. We were... More

Teppanyaki in Japanese means to grill on an iron plate. Essentially, a chef cooks your food in front of you. A big part of the dining experience is the entertainment provided by the chef. Good chefs not only produce tasty food, they are also great entertainers, and top teppanyaki restaurants can be quite expensive. Daikoku Takapuna has a lunch special... More

daikoku offers a fun Japanese experience - food was ok on our visit, and our chef was entertaining. But overall service was a bit poor.

Good Teppanyaki restaurant. Service was good and food very nice. They have a nice deck outside. A good show from chef. Best part was my family paid the bill.

I'm not sure I could spell the name of this restaurant without help - or pronounce it correctly. But I want to go there again, and again, and again. We flew into Auckland yesterday afternoon, from the UK, via Borneo, and were knackered. But it was our granddaughter's 15th birthday, and we had to be part of the celebration. So... More

This is one of my nephews favourite restaurants, and we were there recently for his 18th birthday. It's Teppanyaki at it's best, with skilled staff and the food is awesome. Set price menu options and the amount of food each person receives is huge! It's a great night out, and fun for the whole family.

We needed to find a fun & kid friendly restaurant for 4 adults & 4 kids and boy did this place hit the mark. Great food & fun atmosphere for both young and old particularly for a group of 8
