About Musashi Japanese Cuisine (St Heliers)
When you’re looking for no-nonsense traditional Japanese food, think Musashi. The St Heliers restaurant is chic with brickwork and dark black seating, ideal for big groups and casual catch-ups. The menu follows a tapas-design, with tasty dishes from udon to tempura. Pair it up with a wine, beer, or chilled sake and eat to your heart’s desire.
I thought the food was really nice and great value for money. But the food was often only luke warm
Love the restaurant
Food was great. The staff was very friendly. They do BYO as well. Perfect for family gathering.
Love the food, been coming here for over 10 years
Service was so slow we thought we might be invisible. Possibly new staff were being trained, and it was a Tuesday night so maybe the B team were at work.
Service was very slow on this particular evening. Attention to detail was missing - flow of food was inconsistent. Response to requests were prompt. Staff were courteous and responsive. Needed to be more proactive
We loved going to Musashi ..only thing is if we booked on Saturday evening we were giving a seat behind the kitchen which is not ideal, we appreciate they do let us know in advance. We have a proper seat for yesterday which next to the covid scan bar code in front and ppl just come in n out to scan n some customer even knock my chair without realizing.
This is a great local restaurant with excellent food, ambience and service !
Beautiful food. Good quality. Love the location!
A great place in Glendowie serving excellent Japanese style food. Musashi is very popular with very good reasons. This restaurant is also very family oriented and accomodating to children. We are very glad to see that Musashi was able to survive the lockdown periods and we are looking forward to come back and enjoy nice dining experiences
Could do with cocktails for those who like Puna Coladas etc listed on wine list.
Went there on 23/4/21 and I've never been so eager to leave a place. We were sitting about 1m away from a table cause the restaurant is quite compact. I didn't mind that but it was the fact that right next to us children were screaming at the top of their voice. The parents didn't care as the entire restaurant was getting annoyed by it. What's more annoying is that the staff knew about it (as my partner and I heard them making comments) but they never addressed it. Ended up spending close to $140. The food alone was average but there wasn't any rice as we ordered the $93 deal for two. Seems a bit unreasonable to pay $93 for a lot of meat but no rice to eat it with. Sucks but it was a really special night for my partner and I and I really wish the outcome was different.
Excellent food, excellent portions
Excellent food! Some of the best japanese going in Auckland. Great local gem
Fantastic as always.
We eat here at least 2x a month Never again. Booked in at 6;30 and starters arrived as normal.Then at 7 restaurant filled up and others got meals. We got nothing more until I complained around 8. Young staff doing there best but out of there depth to handle a complaint. Manager arrived and just tried to blame staff, what a coward. Did not want to deal with my issue at all and offered me initially a $30 discount. An absolute disgrace he was more concerned with just shutting me up in front of customers rather than listening to me. Not sure if I am wasting my time with this response as I doubt anyone will bother to contact me back John 021957432
Would love for tuna to come back on the menu!
