A cosy little Japanese restaurant

"We are what we eat". 


That is the word we treasure most. 

We need good food to have a healthy body and mind.


That is why we always select local products carefully and provide you with healthy Japanese meals which we love to eat ourselves.


We cook every meal with our heart and want to share the deliciousness and the greatness of traditional Japanese cuisine.

At the same time, we try to handle various dietary requirements, such as veganism, a gluten-free diet, nut allergies, and even soy allergies by creating new styles of Japanese cuisine in addition to traditional ones. If you have any special requirements, please let us know in advance. We will try to respond your request as much as we can.

We aim to create a space where customers with different dietary requirements can come together and enjoy their meals with each other.


We strive to create a happy environment for everyone and make you smile with our meals and services.


Products we use:


Lee Fish is a fishing company based in Leigh Harbour, North of Auckland, who delivers fresh fish from the local harbour. They catch their fish in the most sustainable manner. They always guarantee fresh and high quality fish.

What "JANKEN" means










JANKEN is the name of the game "Rock, Paper, Scissors" in Japanese. 

From ancient times, JANKEN has been used as a simple and impartial way to decide the winner.

We love JANKEN just as a game, sometimes as a better way to settle matters.

Come and play JANKEN with us!

Usually we are so busy for weekend's dinner time,

so we are sorry but sometimes we have to stop taking take-away order. 

Please call us  a day before you need, if you really deserve our take-away meals.

Sorry for this inconvenient and thank you for your understanding!
