Musashi Japanese Cuisine / St Heliers

At MUSASHI JAPANESE CUISINE, provide a variety of foods prepared using the grace given to us by the earth.
Menu consists of traditional meals as well as MUSASHI originals that you can only find here.
With such a great selection of moderately priced food and alcohol, navigating the menu could be tricky. Thankfully, Musashi has made the task as simple as possible by including both pictures and a brief description of each meal. The diversity of dishes is definitely this restaurant’s strong point.

Customer favourites jostle for your attention – tempura, sushi, nigiri-zushi, sashimi, takoyaki, and a highly recommended katsuni (pork cutlet cooked with eggs and sweet soy sauce). It’s best to share dishes and order widely. There are some novelties: definitely worth trying are the paper pot meals, which are cooked on what you’d normally use for a clay pot meal (which Musashi also does). There are also most popular Chicken Miso Katsu (deep fried chicken with original miso sauce), and an artistically arranged Dragon Roll (made with eel, rice, cucumber and avocado). At times, Musashi overflows with customers – especially on Friday or Saturday nights – so it’s not always the easiest place to have a quiet conversation. Having said this, popularity would indicate that the food is very, very good. Make sure you book.

    Musashi in St Heliers is always our first choice when dining out. The food and service are consistantly outstanding. We do prefer going early in the evening as it can get very noisy later on. It would be perfect if not for the poor acoustics!

    i am well known as foodie amongst friends
    so i would like to mention about good and bad about Eiji.
    the food, service and atmospher are really perfect.
    but the udon and nabe soups are way too sweet as all my friends and family noticed. also salad is sweet and average but their katsu is extra oridnary and their other dishes are just amazing. i never disappoint with food and whenever i take my friends or family out they absolutely loved it. st heliers branch is original and new dessert deli has been opened next to eiji so i go those two outstanding places:) it’s good to have eiji restaurant in Auckland

    Yes it was all very nice, The kusiage vegetables were crispy and the provision of 3 different sauces added to the flavour. The paper steam boat seafood was fresh and tasty and interesting to eat.

    Miso soup, Kuchiage – chicken, okura, harpen. Yose nabe was a specialty of the restaurant using paper bowls to cook in, the presentation and taste delectable.
