We value KAZAGURUMA being a warm and comfortable place above all.
We hope the whole experience of our food, ambience and friendly hospitality will be the first reason you are coming back to us.


It's truly an honour to be able to work as a chef in this country, and on top of that, it's been my dream to open my restaurant in Wellington. New Zealand appeals to me as a country where you can enjoy the diversity of the food culture from around the world.
KAZAGURUMA offers an entirely new Japanese dining to Wellington. We hope we can make Japanese dining more familiar to you.
Food nurtures your body and mind, and your appreciation of our food encourages us to offer something better every time.

We look forward to seeing you at KAZAGURUMA.

I hope you can meet the world of Japanese food, sake and hospitality here.

- Madoka Takasu(Manager)


I am truly blessed to have met the people who made KAZAGURUMA possible, especially Shojiro and Madoka, since I opened KAZUYA Restaurant in Auckland. At the same time, it is also exciting to just think about the future with full of opportunities to meet new people at KAZAGURUMA.
I'll be happily entertaining our guests at KAZUYA Restaurant in Auckland most of the time, but I'm looking forward to visiting KAZAGURUMA often. If you see me here, please don't hesitate to talk to me.

We will always do our best for KAZAGURUMA to be a long-loved place and will greatly appreciate your warm support.
