Cuisine: Japanese
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30
Ranked: #9 of 110 restaurants in Auckland

With a magnificent Head Chef at the helm, Haru No Yume is serving exquisite Japanese plates to the trendy restaurant-goers in Auckland.

It's a Zen hideaway from the buzz of Auckland. Step inside and you are greeted by a slick, symmetrical dining area with trendy wooden panelling, green creepers and Japanese lanterns. Sake bottles also line the shelves; a hint to buy a full bottle perhaps...?

From freshly made sashimi to gyoza and ramen, this eatery serves the very best of Japanese cuisine. In the sushi section there's the classic nigiri as well as beef tataki and tempura oyster. And the California rolls? Keep them rolling we say!

There are also delectable sharing plates like a soft shell crab, agedashi tofu and tempura prawn which is always a crowd-pleaser. If sharing isn't for you, why not order a warming bowl of ramen! And a bottle of Sake whilst you're at it.

Tried sashimi, nigiri, tempura oysters, softshell crab and various sides, which were all outstanding. Haru No Yume is a little gem. If you are looking for reasonably priced, top-quality Japanese food, this is the place to go.

Dined with the family and with the quality of the food we were well impressed. The fresh sashimi platter an assortment of entrees and to top it off with solid mains, all served in a good time also. Highly recommended and well worth a visit.

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Auckland. Atmosphere is sophisticated without being pretentious, with wonderful service, and amazing food. For starters, the edamame was nicely salted, gyoza had a tasty toasty wrapper, and the tempura prawns were absolutely beautiful with a dipping sauce I was nearly ready to pick up and drink, it was so good. The super ramen lived up to it’s moniker, with a delicious creamy, buttery broth and charsu so soft and tender it practically melted in your mouth, and even the egg was just the right texture. We also had a lovely chicken katsu and sushi nigiri plate that were both beautifully presented. To top it all off, we finished with the black sesame ice cream and an astonishingly satisfying mr softcone.

We dined here with our family visiting from Sydney who've just been to Osaka Japan and tried lots of authentic Japanese dishes there. We took them here to know how Haru No Yume food compares. Glad it did not disappoint, they were very pleased with the quality and taste of the food we ordered. And of course, the very friendly service.

Had an amazing dinner at Haru No Yume. The sashimi is done of the best I have eaten. So fresh. Outstanding. Ordered the tofu, soft shell crab, karagge chicken, gyoza and skinny fries. All really amazing. Finished it off with a soft serve cone which was filled all the way. Really delicious food and great service. Definitely recommend.

Love this restaurant for several reasons.
It is great if you're going for a date or to catch up with a group of friends. The location is perfect for those coming from town, especially those who have work or uni till 17:30.
The restaurant itself is cozy and warm - perfect for the cold weather we're currently experiencing in Auckland.
Lastly, raw dishes are fresh and cooked dishes are very flavourful. I would recommend the sashimi platter, the ramen and the chicken wings - we loved them.
The service is friendly and accomodating. We did not realise how long we were there for, but they kindly notified us that they were "closing in 10 minutes".
Thank you for the wonderful night Haru No Yume!

Had the best experience. The fresh sashimi was excellent, every dish we picked was delicious, we'll have to come back to try the tartare which was recommended by the staff but we already had our sights set on other dishes. Unfortunately we didn't get to try out the range of sake as we were all doing Dry July. The atmosphere was really good even for a Tuesday night. Staff were super attentive and we had a really nice night catching up with good friends over a great service and meal. Thank you!

MUST TRY especially if you love sashimi.

We all know its not easy to find a restaurant serves fresh sashimi & sushi unless you go for a real fancy Japanese restaurant.
This is a perfect chance to try all good quality authentic Japanese cuisine with attractive cost.
Absolutely love their sashimi platter & soft crab shell.

Chicken dish are average, would be better to serve with bowl of rice.

Staff are super friendly, definitely would go back to try their weekend buffet.
