My wife and I found Sharaku while travelling around NZ and staying in Auckland. As Japanese food lovers, who have been to Japan many times, we found their food to be simply amazing. My wife who had previously lived in Japan for 5 years, even agreed that their food was the best she had eaten outside of Japan itself. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest you give them go. The staff are very friendly and the prices are quite reasonable for NZ.

The food is faultless and the service is faultless. The decor needs a lot of work to bring this out of the way restaurant up to date and get the 5 stars it rightly deserves

Excellent meal well presented and the variety of textures and flavours were superb. The restaurant is well situated in an arcade on Lower Queen Street not far from Britomart transport hub.

This is a fantastic restaurant for Japanese cuisine. It is a mid-range to expensive restaurant, and offers decent decor and practical functional tables and chairs. The atmosphere is tranquil, with soft piano music to provide a lovely ambiance.

The service is excellent and cannot be faulted! On arrival I was greeted by the waitress and the sushi chef, in Japanese. All the staff there are Japanese people. I was served by Mai who provided flawless, attentive, and yet unobtrusive service.

I had two sushi dishes. The salmon was the freshest I've eaten in years, and the eel was perfectly prepared. This is more than just food, this is a really good dining experience, and even though it is not cheap, it is worth going to occasionally.
