Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30

Welcome to The Gyoza Bar, the home of authentic Japanese food in Auckland…

Minimal wooden interiors and industrial fittings embody the simple yet stylish look we have come to associate with Japan, making it an intimate spot for a catch up with friends.

All of the gyozas are made to a recipe from Kotetsu, the Gyoza bar in Fukuoka Japan that has been run by their head company for 18 years. Expect golden parcels bulging with mouth-watering fillings such as pork, prawn and wagyu beef.

Also on offer is a flavour-filled selection of Asian tapas and chef’s specials inspired by traditional izakaya restaurants. Think kaarage chicken, vegetable tempura and beef tataki. With so much on offer, there really is something to suit every palate.

The drinks list is equally diverse, including everything from Japanese whiskies to beers on tap, plum wine and sake. An expert team of bar managers are on hand to suggest special, unlisted wines to accompany your meal.

Treat yourself to an exceptional dining experience at The Gyoza Bar.

Great little bar, yummy food with something for all our different tastes, including great chicken katsu skewers for my fussy eater son. Very friendly staff who were attentive to our needs.
We will definitely be going back.

Our meal at the Gyoza bar was nothing short of incredible. We were greeted at the door by a smiling Japanese man who gave us the option of any table in the restaurant.

We sat down, ordered drinks, which arrived to the table in minutes. I would highly recommend the “Samurai” (sake, mixed with soda water & lime). Along with the drinks we ordered several small plates to start, including the ‘lotus root chips’, ‘edamame’ and ‘Nori Wasabi Chips’. All were delicious, but the latter was a standout (a must-try for your visit).

We then ordered several main plates, but the standout has to be the pork & beef Gyoza platter as well as the steamed broccoli side. The dunplings were delicious - lightly fried on one side, presented in a 12-piece ring with some tasty dipping sauces. The steamed broccoli was presented in a basket, with a tangy dipping sauce.

The place was well furnished in Japanese style, and their music playlist was on-point.

Absolutely amazing meal - would highly reccommend to everyone. Definitely returning soon...
