Sakebar Nippon Restaurant has been providing a taste of Japan in Epsom for 15 years. This place is noisy, from the sounds of the beating drums greeting you as you enter and leave the sakebar and the enthusiastic shouting between the Japanese chefs. Enjoy house or premium Sake and Shochu (and find out the difference between the two) as well as Japanese Nama beers and wines.

Groups of up to 80 people can book and totally go wild. Especially once the Shochu has being pouring and there's a microphone pressed to your lips. Suddenly those 80's tunes don't sound so bad.

I went there this weekend and was impressed with the service and the relationship between price and quality. I also like the fact that they show cook so you can always see what is going on in the kitchen.

32-34 Anzac Street, Takapuna, Auckland Tuesday-Sunday 5pm- Late Boisterous and proud, Sakebar Nippon will greet you with banging pans and a Japanese welcome. The sake bar is a family friendly restaurant with a fun vibe. Stepping inside the sake bar emulates stepping into another world; the authentic Japanese décor is intricate, the atmosphere extremely well-executed. With platters-to-share of amazing Asian cuisine, eating at Nippon Sake Bar is a very social experience. The price is low in comparison to the high quality of food and service provided.

Always a lively atmosphere, great for kids and adults alike. Food is consistently good. Love it!

Great food! Great upstairs area for group karaoke. Always a great meal and great atmosphere #darkhorse

How can you not love the noisy and fun atmosphere of SakeBar Nippon. Great food and friendly service. The sounds of the beating drums always amused our daughter, who loves the sushi. #feelgood

Every time i come here i get the same amazing atmosphere, bubbly staff and great food! The staff took great care of our table, as it was my dads birthday we brought a cake along, they took it away to put it in the fridge (it was a cheesecake) and after we had our lovely! flavorsome! beautifully plated dishes it was time for cake! 3-4 staff dressed up in cute costumes and brought the cake lite up and sung my dad happy birthday !! Thank you to all the staff involved in making our night memorable ! and giving my dad a great birthday :) :) the whole experience is incredible you have to come here to experience it as well! Best Japanese restaurant in Auckland now my regular :) 10/10

The atmosphere, the smells, the people and the sake! Sitting at the bar and watching your food be cooked is one of my favourite ways to eat, not to mention the fact that you can order multiple dishes and taste a bit of everything! Tapas, Japanese style YUM

My favourite Japanese. Their teriyaki chicken is insane! I love the way they greet you with a gong on your entry and exit.
