Prompt and friendly service. Rustic like setting like an Izakaya. Standard Japanese food executed well. Eggplant miso-yaki was super delicious. Recommended

We had our last lunch here before we moved back to the Netherlands after 1 year, and WOW what a good bye! Amazing super fresh sushi (made in front of our nose), crispy squid and that aubergine is to die for. Service was VERY good...as well (lovely lady from Tokyo with English husband) highly recommended!More

Food was absolutely delicious. Sashimi plate was delicious and included local fish. Dumplings were tasty with a spicy sauce. Sake recommendation from the hostess was great.

Disappointing experience- poor service- we had to ask to be seated after waiting ages in near empty seats, and again ages later trying to catch their eye to order, worse though bland uninspiring food - ordered bento boxes the only items we enjoyed was the...miso soup and the salmon sashimi- hard to get it wrong with that I guess. Teriyaki chicken and the beef dishes were tasteless. Items were missing but just couldn’t be bothered trying to get help again. No one asked if we enjoyed it- guess they didn’t want the answer! Overall really annoying we wasted good money on expensive food when there are so many other choices there. Japanese cuisine is usually exquisite definitely go elsewhereMore

I met Sarasa one of the owner and she offered me a Grilled bento Lunch . The food was plenty of variety and is so good from starter to main dish also the soup was hot for the winter season. The service is so fast....I did enjoy and was so full that day. I highly recommend Tokyo Club at Ponsonby Central.More

WOW... Many years ago proper restaurants used to have a Maitre'D (Maître d' is short for maître d'hôtel, which comes from French and literally means "master of the house). They would make you feel like your at your aunts house for a special occasion and...charm you with their soft voice. Well this place definitely sticks to tradition and the Maitre'D is Sarasa. The Japanese owner (only been in NZ for 22 years) hosts all guests and making them all feel like VIP guests. Seriouslly impeccable service with genuine and traditional Japanese fare reminiscent of Tokyo Izakayas (I lived in Tokyo for 3.5 years and this place is as close as it gets for food, ambience and service). Quickest way to feel you are in Tokyo is grab a counter seat and chit chat with Sarasa and the Japanese staff. Order a bento box (actually very cheap at $32) and wash down with Asahi beers. Campai!!! Will be back Sarasa San :) Arigato GozaimasuMore

Not as good as Tokyo Bay in Takapuna…. Very dark during the day too…. A very small space so felt a little cramped…. We both had The Boss Bento Box, it was a bit underwhelming having had plenty of Bento Boxes before….
