A simple but efficient Japanese to visit while your in the beachside Orewa area. All your obvious choices, freshly made buy Japanese chef on site. Prices are very reasonable, the only thing lacking is any ambience. It's very cafe like. Staff are always helpful serving you with a smile.

Extensive selection on their menu and the food was delicious. Staff are kind and helpful. We ordered takeouts to take back to our motel and some sushi. We didn't have to wait long for the food and it was reasonably priced. The restaurant had a number of people inside which is always a good sign.

Friendly staff- but generally the sushi and atmosphere is pretty average. Reasonable prices though not the best for sushi I've had

Enjoyed the lunch bento box while the kids were able to select their own plate of sushi. Good selection of sushi and other menu options.

Great food and great value. Lots of menu choice and lovely presentation. Was looking for a healthy option for dinner as running the Orewa half the next morning. Perfect option

This is a little treasure tucked away in the side streets of Orewa. Well worth a visit, friendly and relaxed service
