I personally liked the beef dish the meat was so fresh and chewy..! I’m definitely going back for another dinner
The food was delicious and the chef’s friendly and awesome!
But the female host was horrible! I’ve never met someone so rude. I called 3 weeks ahead to book a group of 25 for a birthday and was told to call back a week prior to confirm numbers. I confirmed our numbers, how many kids attending plus a few more guests and a time extension by 30mins. The message wasn’t passed on (not my problem) and the chic lost the plot, because another group was also around the same time, which was understandable but no need for the attitude. I had a go at her and she said we had to be out in 30mins, I told her were she can put that as most the group travelled from Whangarei to attend. We were all seated and then she came out to argue with me in front of my family and said one table will have to wait because of the other group who hadn’t even rocked up yet. I’m the customer and I had to ask her if we could take this out in the foyer away from everyone to settle. Then at the end she tried to charge me for 2 extra people that never existed!!! We go here for my cousins birthday nearly every year as its her favourite, so its not like we are first timers. I absolutely love Japanese food, been to Japan a few times and love the people and culture. This chic is obviously so western its not funny she needs to go home more often and check herself. Unfortunately because of the service I will never go here again.
We went for Father’s Day dinner last night with another family – 4 adults, 5 kids in total and had the best Teppan Yaki experience to date.
We were seated and served promptly. The service throughout the night was attentive and fast.
The food was as delicious as always – I’d even suggest that the yum yum sauce at this restaurant was better than I’ve had in a long time.
The restaurant was clean and the floor wasn’t sticky (something we have found at Botany which is a little off-putting).
What absolutely made our night was the fantastic chef. I’m not sure if we were just lucky or whether we were assigned one who was particularly good with kids but it doesn’t matter – he was sensational. He made a onion train for our daughter, complete with tooting. He teased the kids with lollipops hiding in his hat. He made the salt disappear, appeared to be shaking into the eldest drink and even tricked our son into believing he had caught a bowl of fried rice with his eyes shut.
I would absolutely recommend this Daikoku for family dining – our children ranged in age from 2 to 13 and they all enjoyed it.
The prices seem high however when you consider that they include soup, rice, appetizer, salad, veges and ice cream they are very affordable. And we never have issues with feeling underfed – it’s sometimes the opposite.
