Ebisu restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Ebisu in Britomart flawlessly executes smart Japanese food.

Inky, moody Ebisu, with its flawlessly executed food, is as good a place for a lunch meeting as it is for a date or a family dinner. The long izakaya-style menu has broad appeal and is also incredible value, especially if you opt for the set dinner (15 shared dishes for $75pp). Vegetarian and vegan diners are well catered for, and raw-fish enthusiasts will be wowed by the fresh-off-the-boat sashimi platters. We love the miso-glazed eggplant, the karaage chicken, and when in season, the asparagus with citrusy yuzu hollandaise. There’s an extensive sake list, which the knowledgeable waitstaff will happily talk you through.

What it offers Shared-plate options / Good for vegetarians / Set menu options / Dégustation option / Bar / Takes large groups / Good for kids
A favourite dish Asparagus with yuzu hollandaise and shichimi crumble.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
