Kura restaurant is modern style Japanese food with a fusion twist. Kura means "warehouse" in Japanese.

Slide the old temple door on Queen Street and descend down to Kura Japanese restaurant. The building Kura is in used to be an old grain silo when there was a stream running through Queen St., hence the name Kura, which means warehouse in Japanese. Adorning the old stone wall that is a legacy from Auckland~s colonial days, are gorgeous Japanese silk wedding kimonos, also dotted around are Japanese antiques, all of which are for sale. During winter there is an open fire.

There is an ever changing daily specials menu which reflects the seasonal changes and what is fresh from the fish markets that day. Highly recommended is our beautifully presented fresh sashimi platters, visually stunning oeBridge or oeSpider sushi rolls and the deep fried soft shell crab is a must!

With over 24 different sakes to choose from and a small well matched wine list, Kura's relaxed ambiance adds to a wonderful dining experience.

Kura is a favourite for a romantic date but also caters for larger groups.

Bookings are essential.

  1. Kura Japanese Restaurant

    Awesome food. Beautifully presented. Not your average sushi, but something... so much more! It is a little pricey, but it's worth it once in a while. Very authentic atmosphere and interior deco. Friendly staff. I recommend sitting at the bar seats on the far side, where you can watch the chefs make sushi rolls right in front of you. It is a truly wonderful dinner experience :)

    Check your bill here. I have just had dinner (11/2/2011) with a group of friends, only to find $200 extra added to our bill. When we counted everything up they admitted to having made a mistake and claimed to have given us the wrong bill. Strangely the bill they gave us had everything we did order on it, they had just added some "extra" meals and drinks which hadn't been ordered or delivered. When i asked the manager what their policy was on overcharging she said it was to say "Sorry". Not good enough in my opinion.

    Nestled in amongst the hustle and bustle of Queen St, Kura Japanese restaurant provided us with an excellent dining experience! Such vibrant and authentic atmosphere compliments Kura's food wonderfully. I was really pleased with the quality of service and that 'going-the-extra-mile' approach the wait staff provided. Highly recommended!
