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 fi re.
Kura is modern fusion style Japanese cuisine and does classics with a distinctive Kura” touch that blends outside infl uences and yet still keeps them essential Japanese.
There is also an ever changing daily specials menu which refl ects the seasonal changes and what is fresh from the fi sh markets that day. Highly recommended is our beautifully presented fresh sashimi platters, visually stunning “Bridge” or “Spider” sushi rolls and the deep fried soft shell crab is a must! Kura is a favourite for a romantic date but also caters for larger groups with it’s sunken large tables. Bookings are essential.
