Visited here on a Friday evening as a party of 6 for drinks and dinner. Menu was expansive and the waiting staff were helpful in ensuring we ordered the right amount and highlighting particular favourites we had to try.

Dishes were fresh and flavorsome with many combinations I'd not come across before. The rainbow sushi was fun with the waiter coming over with a blowtorch to light the dish prior to eating...I can't remember much else of that dish other than the fire!

If you've got room for a sweet treat, have a tempura custard ball. Small, sweet and perfect for the end of a meal.

Amazing food amazing service. Been several times and always been a perfect experience. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for. Will definitely be back again.

Went here with my husband and parents for dinner and wow the food was incredible! We ordered so many different things so ended up on the expensive side but was worth it to try all the amazing food the menu has to offer. Delicious!

We returned to the restaurant for Fathers Day and what a great evening it is. The kids love the food as much as we do. Highly recommended and is at the top of my favourite list of places to eat out in Auckland right now.

We were trying to find time to get together with old friends, who booked Azabu for us. It aspires to a Peruvian-Japanese fusion, which is not silly at all given the role of Japanese migration into Latin America. Anyway, the place was buzzing with every table booked. We had a mix of small plates - octopus, chicken karoage, an heirloom tomato tostada, dumplings etc.. Everything was well-presented, even elegantly so, and very nicely flavoured. It was very pleasant indeed, with young and enthusiastic wait-staff. Recommended.
