I went with a large group of friends and it was the worst meal I have ever had. The food was brought out within 5 minutes of us ordering and my dish (curry katsu don) certainly tasted and looked like it has just been warmed up and not fresh. My friend ordered the curry udon which was more like a... More

Had been looking for a Japanese lunch experience around Wellington after a full off in the standards of our usual go-to. Was pleasantly surprised by what we found. The staff brought out some toys for our two year old to keep her entertained until our meals arrived. Overall service was a little disinterested, with the waitress regularly standing behind the...

Had dinner here tonight. The food was good and it came out super quick. The bad....the service was average. The waitress didn't know what Bourbon was so i had to take her to the bar and point it out. They made it with Ginger Beer instead of Ginger Ale then charged me $11 when the Menu says $7.50!! After we... More

Dined at this place as a company dinner. Though I expected but the food, presentation, and the speed of serving were far less than average. Took them such a long time for their slow night (our group was the only customers with 25 ppl, and we all pre-ordered but took them a long time to bring food!) Later found out... More

Absolutely excellent. Delicious selections, friendly and accommodating staff and a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. This was my first time at Ozeki and I chose the teriyaki vegetables with tofu set menu, but here's the thing that makes Ozeki stand out: I noticed that there is also a tempura set menu available, so I asked the waitress if I could have a...

It was my first time going to a Japanese restaurant and I enjoyed my visit and meal. I had one of the combo meals on the menu and both the quality and the size of the portion was fine. The only problem was the huge crowd in the back room which made a lot of noise.

Food was okay but service is worse than snail's pace. Half an hour between each dish. Party of 12 people and the space between each dish at least half an hour. Food overpriced service was poor. Avoid

Ozeki is unfortunately near Massey university so has a lot of students as customers. Consequently Saturday night was full of loud drunk parties of students. The food was okay although the sashimi combo consisted of only two kinds of fish and hadn't been cut with great care. Service was prompt and food arrived quickly.
