Stumbled across it by accident and glad we did. Great food with very funky decor. One had a tempura dish and the other lamb and both were excellent.

I was keen to have some fairly authentic Japanese food whilst in New Zealand but as we had already had two weeks of non-stop eating out (including some v expensive places) I was looking for good value as much as anything else. The reviews on this site for Kushi helped me make up my mind... so off we went at... More

Visited here for an early evening dinner and we couldn't fault it. We had sashimi, nigiri and tempura with a bottle of sake - and everything was delicious and tasted sooooooo fresh. The staff are really nice too. You really are spoilt for choice for sushi in Auckland but this place is definitely worth a try. I would guess that... More

We visited this restaurant as we were staying nearby. The staff were so friendly immediately from arrival until we left. Food was very tasty, we would definitely return again.

We have been here a few times and have always been satisfied with the food and service. We always get to the set meal with only two of us. Last Friday, we went back there again to celebrate my husband's birthday with family. This time we finally got to try the alacart dishes. We had the agedashi tofu, cheese kushi... More

This is a very good Japanese restaueant. We ordered the dinner sers salmon and beef and both were excellent. The staff was very friendly. The only strange thing was the choice if music. Kinda dancemusic which is a strange combination with Japanese food. But as it was not too loud it did not matter too much.

Honestly, if I lived in Auckland I would have been back already. It’s one of those places you could walk past and not give a second thought, however the restaurant is larger than it looks from the outside and it’s much, much nicer than it looks from photos I had seen online. The staff were delightful and the menu offered... More

Went here on business and was very happy with the meals. The price is reasonable and the food is well presented and delicious. Definitely worth a look if you haven't been already.

I live in Auckland - this is my favourite restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff, great food, open late, beer and food combos on the special menu and great prices. I really love this place. My favorite on the menu is the karage chicken (made with puffed rice). Go to this restaurant - you will love it Note: its closed between... More
