Japanese for ‘Cute’

Niwa Japanese Restaurant & Sake Bar

2 Lorne Street, Auckland City

One word for this recent lunch stop – cute! A cute courtyard and garden out the back of the restaurant, the cute blue Asian shirts worn by the waitresses, and the cute ceramic glass provided for my drink.

Although they offer a wide variety of dishes, I was in a hurry (on my lunch break) so I ordered a simple, yet tasty, avocado and tofu salad ($7). This was a perfect choice for the light meal I was looking for. The silky tofu was served on a bed of sliced cabbage and salad greens, chopped avocado and ‘special sauce’.

There are many different Asian places to eat on Lorne Street. Niwa is reasonably priced, and I’m sure it has a much better vibe in the evening when the ‘sake’ bar is more apparent.

In a nutshell: A cheap and cheerful lunch option.
