In the 1980's, Japanese food was virtually unknown in New Zealand and very few people had the opportunity to enjoy it. Ariake was one of the first Japanese restaurants to offer traditional cuisine in the traditional manner with our demure waitresses dressed in Kimonos and the service delivery attentive and respectful. As was then, and is now, we are pleased many people come to enjoy our food and tranquil surroundings despite the fact we are situated on a very busy corner right on the waterfront just opposite the ferry buildings.
We work with wonderful local produce to create great Japanese fare to suit all tastes.
