The beef tataki was very good. We enjoyed the unagi sushi and the prawn tempura.
Excellent range of sake and great service.

Wandered in .... very pleasant waitress greeted me.
Had the goma-ae ... steamed broccoli... was ok ... and the small fish sashimi which was excellent.
The Truant Shiraz was delicious.

The team at Taiko deliver over and over, quick attentive service followed by super fresh food. Meals can be a selection of small plates so come as they are prepared.
Plenty to choose from on both the food and drinks menu. If you are two people ask to sit at the counter to watch the wonderful goings on in the kitchen. Tuesday night is BYOW. A great night out with perfect food and fantastic service. Thank you

Came here with my extended family (they are regular visitors) so it came highly recommended!

didn't know what to expect, not visited a genuine Japanese restaurant previously......first impression was somewhat odd.....down a side street right next to the train station.

the whole place might seem dated (but this is coming from a UK citizen, not a laid back Aucklander!), but don't let this out you off.....the reason to come here is the food!

it was superb, all the dishes ordered were superb! couldn't fault it! give it a go you won't be disappointed!

Team Taiko were/are a dream. Our host thoughtfully chose what we ate, so we never even picked up the menu. His experience wisdom and charm (along with my alluring company) made this truly unforgettable, and my #1 restaurant full-stop in NZ. I'd recommend to all, plus finishing off with the ginger ice-cream (no matter how full you feel).
