With many excellent reviews and compliments on MUSASHI dining experience, the staff and team at MUSASHI endeavour to retain that reputable status by providing visitors with exceptional cuisine and impeccable hospitality, every time.At MUSASHI our main goal is to provide you with a well blend of Japanese fusion cuisine, good service and value-for-money dining experience in Auckland where quality is the focus.

We are fairly regular diners at Musashi - we also went regularly in its earlier reincarnation Eiji's. Over the years it has pretty much maintained its atmosphere and quality. The menu has changed over the years while still offering the Kiwi favourites in various guises. Teriyaki chicken anyone?! The teenagers were suddenly out for the evening so the wife (who is Japanese) and I decided to pop and see if we could get a table and order. As usual Musashi was busy but they could cram us in for 1 1/2 before a later reservation arrived. The sparkling sake was not too my taste (L&P?) so I went for my preferred Otokoyama. The service was fine, a young Kiwi boy trying his basic Japanese out on my wife. The agedashi tofu was good, the sashimi fresh, the soft shell crab tasty although a bit oily, the sushi was also good. All in all a nice and satisfying evening out.

Wow! This is amazing place to visit. The food was devine & service was good too. We had a selection of starters to share with our table. Great idea to taste a few options. Our mains were amazing too. Great food & great value. The restaurant is a bit small but still enjoyable dining. Seeing Josh Emmett dining there said it all for me. Well done Musashi ☺

Great food. Particularly loved the salad with its subtle sesame dressing. The staff are knowledgeable, attentive, friendly. The only problem: serving dishes together to our small party. A gap of five minutes between some being served and the others receiving their food is, frankly, unacceptable. No excuses. It was early evening and the restaurant not busy. Sorry, guys, you'll have to sharpen up. A lot. This sort of nonsense ruins an otherwise excellent experience.
