On our way through Te Awamutu we stopped at this sushi place. The decor is VERY plain but the sushi was fresh and there's a great variety. Was just a bit taken aback seeing the lady on the counter handling cash and then going back to handling the sushi and filling the display units without washing her hands. She wasn't... More

If you want freshness,variety, and smiling friendly service then this is the place for you. Just be warned though..you will probably become addicted! Su and her team are fabulous. They helped cater for my neighbourhood lunch and everyone was delighted with the quality and flavours. I highly recommend you try this shop..you won't be disappointed.

Great range of authentic sushi. Never seen a better selection of sushi and I've travelled the world (including many trips to Japan). I'll be back for sure!!
