Great food, as always and love the tepanyaki experience, but there was zero atmosphere - music was terrible, and apparently can not be changed as it's played through a USB stick. We had a group of 11 of us, there was no water offered to our table at all during our 2 hours there and when I went to ask for a water, I got told 'Just so you know, we are actually closed now'. It was 9.05pm on Thursday night. I would of thought they wanted to make as much $$ as possible from us, not kick us out! Will not be going back, would have left if a small group and gone elsewhere. Very lackluster experience.

Thank you for your hospitality. Daikoku Takapuna is our favourite Tepin Yaki in Auckland. It was the perfect place to celebrate with all my family a milestone of turning 50. Your manager was amazing, your hostess was efficient and your cooks especially our favourite cook Miki always gives us a show of his artistic skills and entertainment. Again thank you very very much. We will be back sooner before you know. Pare

We had a fantastic time dining at Daikokou this evening, especially with two little members of our family (4.5 and nearly 2 years old!) it was a wonderful experience and very entertaining for them, and brought joy to the adults seeing them have such a great time. The food was delicious and the staff were very kind and accommodating.

Can't recommend Daikoku highly enough! Went to the Takapuna restaurant for my father's 70th birthday and the staff made the night very special for him - we were able to drop off cake and balloons in advance and the food and chefs were amazing!

The floor was so dirty it was like walking in treacle. The table was also sticky and dirty as were all the menus. Including those that were in plastic. Covered in food stains and shabby. The chef dropped his utensil at the table. Picked it up off the floor wiped it with his cloth and started cooking. The service was off hand and uninterested. Plates cleared before being finished. Service was cold and functional.. No care or attention. I asked for two glasses and the waitress gave us ‘the fingers’ to confirm we wanted two. The requests for orders were gruff and mono syllabic. The overall atmosphere was heavy with grease smells and smoke. Almost as though the extractors weren’t being used. The food tasted good but really service and cleanliness are a disaster. At this price point I would have expected a lot better. Very disappointing. Won’t be going back.

Service was ok but didn't come with a smile. Very robotic. Food was OK but WAY over priced. Chef even said 'it's fresh, fresh from countdown. Plenty of other value for money optiond
