You'll pass by and think it used to be a good restaurant and now they turned it into a Japanse place. But you'll have the best sushi ever. They're friendly, you have to order at the bar en pick your drink yourself out of the fridge. My table was a bit sticky. But when I good my food everything was... More

Agadashi tofu is our reference dish when dining at a Japanese restaurant - the fry on the skin on the tofu, the texture and flavour of the tentsuyu and the choice of garnish - it speaks volumes about the chef and the philosophy of the restaurant. We were immediately impressed with the light crunch on the skin and the depth... More

Fresh sushi, beautiful yakisoba and agedashi tofu were just amazing. The sushi was made by order and agedashi tofu had the best texture. We will definitely try the banquet next time

Tried to order a set menu for two and wanted to substitute salad with equal value. Was not possible! We ordered something of a lesser value instead. The portions were small, it was not enough (none of us three is a big eater!), fish was substituted with chicken without announcement! Service did not come back to table to check, we... More

I popped in for lunch, enjoyed it so much I returned the next day. Teriyaki chicken the visit, which was very nice, but the next day had the chicken karage and green salad, with a side of deep fried tofu. Had four large pieces of thigh meat perfectly cooked with a nice oyster / mayonnaise sauce. Really enjoyable. The tofu... More

The food is not bad, but their service makes me feel unwelcome. I was uncomfortable in every minute I ate my lunch in this restaurant. I don't recommend it if you expect a happy atmosphere.

I got the Minami Special and my wife got a sushi bento and it was really good. I had so much food but finished it all because it was tasty. Also got the Agadeshi Tofu and Miso Soup. Good sushi and Japanese cuisine in the town center.

The food was great in taste and for NZ standard, I think it's worth the price. The waiter and waitress were friendly. WiFi was working smooth.
