The food was nice enough, but after living in Brisbane for a couple of years I think we were spoiled by the array of top quality Japanese restaurants that they have there. We had bento boxes and although the salmon sashimi was OK, the rest of the options were a bit on the boring side. Their is no Tuna sashimi or other sushi options, nor is there the array of nori rolls that I am used to at Japanese restaurants. The food was of an acceptable quality and service was good enough. As there isnt too many other options in Whangarei if you want to go out for Japanese then this is an OK option.
