We are fortunate enough to live a few doors down from Ren. We are for sure in there once a week, sometimes twice (when I can't be bothered to cook)
The food is heaven, the service is quick. Highly recommended

Four of us came to Ren for dinner, having booked in advance. Parking was easy on the street and we were quickly seated and water served. We then waited 30 minutes for our wine order to be taken. The menu had a good variety from sushi to tempura. We like to order two or three dishes at a time so the hot food doesn't become cold, and with only one waiter, it meant some long gaps between courses. The food was good, though not at the level of Tanuki's in the city, or Taiko in Kingsland, and not the atmosphere of these two. However, it is good to have a local Japanese cafe that is easy to book into and park close to.

Fantastic, intimate, and friendly. Kauri the owner/chef is dedicated and always happy to oblige. It's BYO too. No need to book usually. It's small but comfortable. The waiter is very knowledgable and always very attentive.

A great find in kohi which we have eaten at on three separate visits to the city. An extensive menu, delicious food and excellent service - what more could you ask for.

Small place serving great food. A local treat.
Fresh, authentic and snappy service. Also a great spot for a private party by all accounts.
