About The Gyoza Bar

The first to introduce Gyoza to Auckland, Gyoza Bar marries handmade Japanese dumplings with a sake to match! Go for the atmosphere, stay for the garlic broccoli and Korean fried chicken. Get cosy inside with some mood lighting and intimate seating, or make the most of the sunshine and relax roadside in Ponsonby with an ice-cold specialty.

DO NOT MAKE A BOOKING HERE THROUGH FIRST TABLE. The head waiter was very unpleasant and unwelcoming. He also didn't speak very good English and did not attempt to communicate clearly. When I asked for my drink to be served in the can, he poured it into a glass and rudely said "this is a bar we don't do that here". Also, they have added extra "special conditions" under First Table bookings WITHOUT MENTIONING it in the website booking. The food is decent here but why come to a horrible establishment for average food.

Great food friendly service , lovely atmosphere . My first time there and thought the 50% off bill was a little high. Went home and worked it out - the total bill was only $8 difference from normal price. Was disappointed.

We have been here many times before with lovely service and food. This time round we felt rushed through. We had booked in advance yet offered not the best seating arrangements. The food was very average, compared to previous visits.

Enjoyed the intimacy of the atmosphere and the food provided. Everything was delicious and we even got seconds! Really recommend the lotus chips, karaage chicken and of course the gyoza. Service was great and the night was memorable. You don't leave feeling food-heavy and sluggish. I only wish there were more gyoza options and that the restaurant had a bit more light in the evening but other than that it was fantastic and I will be going again!
