I first discovered Auri 3yrs ago and it was a regular lunch stop. When moving back to Wanganui last month I was excited to see it was still around. The food is excellent, well priced and comes quickly. On occasions when I eat in it's comfortable enough but mostly I take away to enjoy at home :)

I went here with a few friends I got the number 6 or fried chicken one. It was $15.50 for a piece of processed chicken schnitzel with weird onion under neath, cold flavourless spinach and egg, rice and cabbage. It was edible but extremely average compared with WA Japanese down the road. I won't be going here again. However, the... More

Having not tried Korean food previously I was intrigued to discover this lovely little restaurant.If this typifies Korean cuisine - I am sold! The staff are most courteous and the place is clean.There is a good selection of dishes, all freshly prepared & well presented.I would happily return for a lunch or light dinner here when next visiting Wanganui

If you want to be served by the friendliest people and enjoy delicious food that is a little bit different...go here. The bulgogi is so yummy and is served in a nifty bento style box with rice, kimchi, korean style coleslaw and egg roll. This is a nice and healthy takeaway or dine in and I will be back to... More

What a delightful little Korean resturant! Simple dishes that are freash and tasty, had lunch there several months ago and grabed take-away's the other night; in both instances the service was polite and friendly, food consistently good. While other may queue in drive throughs, the service here was prompt! Certainly recommend for a difference.
