For a get together we met at Daikoku to enjoy Teppan-Yaki. We all enjoyed the food and the way it's been prepared including the quality.

Visited with my wife, son, daughter in law and grandkids, 3 and 4 for lunch. Simply put, the teppanyaki meal was really good and the two youngsters were totally embraced by the staff. Really impressed.

I had a very nice farewell lunch of a work collegue here, my first experience of a restaurant and it was both very tasty and very entertaining. I was told that at night it's even more "acrobatic" and more expensive too. The sake is a great option!

The staff was very friendly and forthcoming. The show was astonishing and the food very good. The friendly Kiwis we had the pleasure to dine with did fit perfectly in the overall awesome picture.

We were surprised to find the same Daikoku as in the Fiji Islands. The meal was prepared nicely and we had a good evening. The chef was friendly and professional. A very good experience and a tasty dinner.

Everytime we visit Auckland we go to Daikoku. Our favourite is the Takapuna NORTH shore Branch but I am sure the quality is all the same. For under $20 prepare to be filled to the brim with yummy teppanyaki treats! Ask for extra yum yum sauce and fried garlic!! Highly recommend you take friends.
