I had a beautiful miso ramen with pork and soft egg- absolutely Delish. The bento box tempura vegetarian was large and the tofu steak which was deep fried with teriyaki sauce with rice was very tasty. The matcha green tea cold drink is always a winner. Quick service and great food with very reasonable prices.

The food was gorgeous, very fresh. Definitely would recommend having the sushi. Also had gyoza and a couple of noodle dishes. All very tasty. Staff were friendly with fast and attentive service. Would definitely return.

I ate here with my husband and a colleague for a late dinner on a Sunday. My husband had the okonomiyaki and I had a vegetarian bento box. My colleague had a curry with rice, which was a massive plate of food! The bento box was excellent. Every component of it was prepared with care, both in the presentation and... More

We spent a weekend in Wellington 2 weeks ago and were recommended this restaurant by the Hotel - Willis Wellington Hotel. We were not disappointed! Food is great and fresh. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. A must try on Cuba Street!

The fish was very fresh and tasty. Service was good. We really enjoyed the food, a cold beer and some sake. Glad we got in when we did, it was packed by the time we left. It's not cheap, my wife and I dropped $100 but it was a good meal and we enjoyed it.

We traveled Japan just before arriving in Wellington and the salmon sashimi gives it a run for its money. Great spot!

It is one of the tasty Japanese restuarants in Wellington. It has a wide range of good taste menus. Bento set is valued for a price. Chicken-spicy ramen is recommended!

In the Cuba St district early on a Saturday evening and trying to find somewhere to eat with the two kids aged 16 & 8. Origami was a great choice. Not pretentious so we felt comfortable and the food was pretty tasty. There was a great range of dishes that catered for the range of tastes in the family. Only... More
