I've eaten at this establishment more than twenty times and heck it's great. They do an awesome lunch set menu with your choice of three tapas, miso, rice, salad plus an amuse bouche and mini dessert. They also have wine specials at lunch for $6 that change each day - a great bet, they have a very good wine list. I recommend the lamb ribs, karaage and teriyaki chicken - delicious!

This restaurant has become our favourite. It's one of our locals, living in Parnell it's a little bit out of our way but we love it so much we crave it. I bring all my friends here and have introduced people of all ages who all love it too and they all come often now also. I can't recommend it enough. The food is superb, the chef is lovely, and Yoko, his wife, is an ever present gentle and gracious hostess. I can't recommend any one thing as everything is totally delicious and presented beautifully.

We frequently have lunch at this wonderful oasis of calm with delicious beautifully presented food with great service. Yoko, always in gorgeous kimonos, is an elegant hostess and oversees the very professional service. The food is fresh, a picture on the plate and a delight to the palate. Everything is done with exquisite taste with different tableware used to show off the artistically presented food. We can't say its authentic Japanese - we've not been there yet - but we go back time and time again because it is a wonderful experience and the feel good factor is alive and well!

We wandered in here not knowing what to expect. All of the food was delicious, interesting and beautifully presented. Service was also very efficient and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Having lived in Japan for three years and visited over ten Japanese restaurants in Auckland - this is THE most delicious and authentic Japanese food, service & atmosphere! What a beautiful hidden gem. We popped in for Valentines Day and had the special lunch menu for two. Completely blown away by the incredible quality of each dish they treated us to! Already thinking of reasons to go back !! Oishii
