About Daikoku (Takapuna)
A favourite amongst teppanyaki-lovers, Daikoku is known for an experience rich in both quality and quantity. One of the only places where you can chat to your chef as he cooks your meal right in front of you, making for dinner and a show. Enjoy set menus of quality cuts of meat, as you graze and socialise in the traditional Japanese dining room.
Love this place went on a Tuesday Night with 6 of us 4 adults and 2 kids we all loved it. staff were lovely and catered to our needs well thank you.
It was my partners and I’s first time here and we can’t stop talking about how great the experience was and the food was just as amazing as well! Thank you!
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.
Everything was absolutely fantastic, I took my mum out for dinner for Mother’s Day and she had a lovely time - the chef was excellently entertaining with his culinary skills and had beautiful customer service. Throughly enjoyed the meal, amazing all round once again x
We love the food at Daikoku. We have been going there for over 20 years. The staff is always very friendly. Great service.
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
As always, loved my meal and the atmosphere at Daikoku. Food is always amazing and the chefs do an amazing job of keeping us entertained
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.
We had a great time and thought the food was well prepared- such a wonderful experience!
My Wife and I love Daikoku and so convieniemt in Takapuna to the Bruce Mason Theatre. The food is so delicious, especially with the house famous Yum Yum sauce. We will be back again and again.
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!
fun and different dining. lovely steak. not much of a connection with chef. Very professional but not very inclusive.Not a lot of atmosphere.
Enjoyable watching the chef cut the egg and also catching it in our mouths. Kids loved it.
Plse open a restaurant in Tauranga :)
Awesome Food, great chef and staff Service. Thank you for lovely food and giving special fruits, ice cream with candle for my mum's bday. Thank you so much 💓
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
Great value for money delicious food
Good food but is a bit expensive for what you get.
Great place for couples, families looking for a relaxing night out
A lovely place with incredible people - thank you 👏😊
Always a great delicious meal
Fabulous food and service as always.....our Valentines dinner was only slightly ruined by all our phones sounding the latest Lockdown alert at 8.30!!!!
Was not overly keen on the new sauce for the meat preferred the old one
