Really enjoyed this place. Atmosphere and service was really good. Pricing was high so that's the only thing stopping me giving it five stars. Food came out really quickly as well. We were seated by the door and a cold breeze came in every time it opened so keep that in my if you feel the cold.

Upon arrivng we were joyfully suprised. Our friends who are vego's had previously visited this establishment. We aren't but the menu looked amazing. The setting... was amazing. Unfortunately, the food wasnt. We were pleasantly suprised there was no wait to be seated, despite a trendy and busy atmosphere. There was a wonderful ambience about the venue, the vibes were great.... More

Very tasty, meal portions ok for higher end Japanese. Only thing - Fill your wine glasses more! Vapours and the more we drink the more we spend!

Best japanese I had in Auckland. It is not common to find a place that combines an inventive space with an inventive (and delicious) cuisine. With Ebisu, you will find the perfect balance of tradition and modernity in both the food and the venue. You will have the choice between traditional or modern sushis, australian wines or japanese whiskeys, and... More

I dined here while I was on a business trip. I am a lover of anything pure and natural, crunchy veges and seafood, hence my choice to go for Japanese. I was on my own and perhaps therefore was given a table in the very dark back of the restaurant. There wasn't a big crowd so the rest of the... More

I visited with colleagues for our leadership team Christmas celebration. We ordered the banquet. Every dish arrived beautifully presented and it was all delicious! And the courses kept coming! A thoroughly enjoyable evening and I'd love to go back.

Nice, high quality sushi and sides in an eclectic semi-industrial space. Service was excellent. Only jarring note - the DJ and loud modern music were totally out of place, and conversation became a little difficult. The special Bluff oysters were exceptionally good. Good value for the money.

Fantastic menu and all delicious. Staff attentive but not interfering. Would certainly go again. Oysters are a must.
