Danryu Japanese Seafood Restaurant

Fantastic menus ($25)

Iburi-Gakko Nigiri Sushi

Rare Sushi and Non-eatable

anywhere else in New Zealand !!

Iburi-gakko is something that can only be made in heavy snow in Akita, a special and rare traditional daikon (radish) pickles. Likewise, the New Zealand salmon has been tenderly raised in pure winter snow.

The two special ingredients coming from the purity of snowing conditions has allowed me to put together a special Japanese dish nigiri sushi.

Combining these exquisite ingredients is rice with seaweed paste specially made for this dish, and shiso on the side will allow you to enjoy all the pure taste. I present you a dish which draws out all the flavours of these delicate flavours.

Best Sake with Iburi-gakko Nigiri Sushi

** Yamamoto Pure Black

** This Sake is exclusive at the price of $25.

Using natural spring water from Shirakami Sanchi in Akita, Japan, a UNESCO World Heritage mountain site Yamamoto's Sake has phenomenal purity, subtle citrus to the nose, a clean refreshing palate and a finish like a Samurai sword. Enjoy the result of the master Yamamoto's passion for Sake!

Yamamoto Pure Black is also famous in Akita prefecture, Japan. This Sake perfectly matches the unique sushi, Iburi-gakko Nigiri Sushi, with Iburi-gakko (radish pickles), known as the local speciality of food in Akita, Japan.

Chef : Satoru Sawaki

He is one of Auckland's top Japanese chefs, having a great passion for delivering visual feasts and taste sensational Japanese Food. Besides, He thinks of bringing joy to his customers is paramount.

Danryu means ‘warm current’ in Japanese.

As you might know, ocean currents are broadly separated into warm and cold. When these two currents meet, it creates a rich environment for plankton to flourish and invites small fish to enrich themselves on the plant life. In turn, larger fish flourish on the small, and on goes the chain of good eating.

Just as the currents invite gathering in the oceans, we at Danryu wish to invite you to come into our warm walls, gather over the ocean’s bounty, and feast.

We may not offer plankton, but we hope the welcoming smiles and our good food and drink will entice you plenty. We dream that this place becomes a source of joy for you and your loved ones, a place teeming with nourishment for the body and soul.

That is the Danryu we strive for it.
