Really fresh ingredients, and an authentic atmosphere. The staff are so friendly and remember you even if you haven't been back in ages. I also love the salmon teriyaki salad.

We are catching a ferry but with extra time we thought we'd try something new. It does look promising from the outside but a freshly made sushi can't be beat. Very nice indeed

Make sure you visit them at the Friday Night Market and try their Steamed Dumplings! The best dumpling in town. And a very wide variety too.

The setting is a bit awkward and the decor may make you wondering, but the sushi is incredibly tasty and good value. The Japanese lady seems very confident of her products, but she has right to be. Nice variety, but don't be late if you're picking up sushi for lunch!

A wide variety of sushi and dim sum to chose from. Would recommend the spicy beef sushi as it was super delicious. Also try the red rice sushi, dim sum and deep fried prawns - all tasty and well cooked. I found it to be value for money. We bought 12 pieces of sushi and 2 ginger beers for $20... More

When I came there first time I was a bit confused because the restaurant looks quite simple, but I saw a lot of people who were eating and chating there like a close friend, so I decided to try a sea food soup and I found it the best in New Zealand. Next day I came just before the restaurant... More

I had the guy make it for me on the spot, which was great because I got nice big slices of fish. Seems like they have a lot of cool kitchen experiments going on there, super friendly owner and chef. One of the best sushi takeaway places I've been to, but also one of the most expensive.
