So good!

It's good

The staff are always friendly and there are lots of vegeterian options.

Delicious food, BYO and reasonably cheap if you go in a big group!

Nishiki Japanese Restaurant at the bottom of Wellington Street, Freemans Ba, serves the most sumptuous feasts of gorgeous Japanese food and it's always packed full of other diners because they know how GREAT this place is. It's not even expensive, very reasonably priced and super fast service.

Good place to go with a group, friendly service and BYO

Nishiki was the port of call before a night out in Ponsonby and our friend arranged for us all to come here beforehand to eat and drink before heading out as it is BYO. It is always quite fun ordering from here, everything is very cheap and you choose a whole bunch of little things to eat at one time. A must get is the chips with maple syrup - sounds so weird and that is what I thought but it is SO yum. We got so many dishes I can hardly remember most of them but I do remember there was nothing I did not enjoy. So we ended up getting quite drunk and gave the waiters some grief with our drunken antics and we have been too scared to return since. Hopefully by now they have forgotten our faces. Definitely one of my favourite Japanese restaurants.

Auckland institution for Japanese takeaway and handy in Freemans bay. Great to meet the girls

Always a great japanese place to go with a variety of finger food and sake!

A dynamic range of japanese meals plus an array of delicious drinks and cocktails!
