The best Japanese food ever. My 4th visit here, and the food was amazing. Each time I visit I hope it has not changed, and it never disappoints. It is great to sit at the Teppanyaki bar and watch the incredibly skilled chef at work. He really looks as though he enjoys cooking and it shows in the delicious food... More

We wanted to try something japanese for dinner and it was great place to do so. A waiter was very helpful. The food was very tasty and fresh, we were so glad that we found this spot. The restaurant is small but has a great vibe, prices were ok.

This place was awesome!! Such a hidden gem in Newmarket. Will be going back time and time again! Lovely staff, the chef was awesome and talked to us for ages. Also awesome value with the $100 for two people, and you get entrees, mains and dessert.

A very unusual layout for a Teppanyaki restaurant with a single longish Teppan grill in front of the bar area & a single chef doing the lot! Obviously it can't cope with too many people at once although there are some smaller tables in front of the bar as well. Food is the usual mixture of Teppanyaki cooking with prawns,... More

A lovely, casual and welcoming restaurant. Fabulous staff, attentive service, engaging chef and delicious food. It's not flash but in this lies its charm. Embrace it. It's old fashioned hospitality.

Went here for a family birthday dinner after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor. We loved this place. We were given the option to sit in front of the griddle and watch the chef prepare our food, which we did, or there are other tables where you can be seated. The food was excellent and, we felt, good value for... More

This is a real find in Auckland. Delicious food, for reasonable prices. The service is outstanding. There chef really becomes the host and it's not just a delicious meal but a truly memorable experience. I can't recommend this lovely little restaurant as much as it deserves!

We had a quick meal here which was enjoyable and the service was pleasant, the food tasty however the liberal use of butter and salt did not seem very authentic and made us all very thirsty the next day.

A great little Teppanyaki joint to get your lunch fix. With so many eateries in close proximity the pricing is really good. Everything was as I expected and the steak was just how I ordered it.

Arrived for teppanyaki and were seated promptly. Slightly noisy extractor in the background but seats were graciously re arranged to minimise the noise. Host is a wonderful warm man who made special efforts for Mum's 75th. They has ample vegetables options for the vegetarian amongst us. We all had teppanyaki and were satisfied with the taste and portions as well... More
