We are always on the lookout for good Japanese restaurants and we are reasonably well served in Ponsonby. At the more “cheap & cheerful” end we have been regulars at Tomo at Three Lamps. Our latest favourite however is Yuzu at 145 Ponsonby Road (next to Chapel) and we were there last Friday night. Yuzu has a bit more ambiance than Tomo much of which is provided by the wonderful Jane and her team.
They do a great take on okonomiyaki (seafood pancake) and our favourites are the any of the tempura, teriyaki chicken donburi and chicken katsu – all very yummy and reasonably priced.
Perfect for a quick bite – lovely service and very reasonably priced.
PS Can’t wait for Ponsonby market day this Saturday Sept 21st
