TheOzeki Story

Ozeki is the place to go to for fresh, delicious Japanese food at a great price. It is Wellington’s best Japanese BYO eatery.

Based on Tory St in the heart of Wellington, Ozeki is the place to bring your friends, your family, your work crew or that special someone, for lunch or dinner.

Ozeki specialises in tasty meals, from sushi to noodles, vegetarian and delicious chicken, beef, fish and lamb dishes. Always popular from the dinner menu is Ozeki’s set meal selection which include our homemade miso soup, rice and salad and which start at $18.50 or our world-famous-in-Wellington Bento boxes!

Ozeki is a fully licensed BYO restaurant. So, if you have a favourite wine to go with your meal, bring it along! Or you can choose from our own selection of wines, beers, soft drinks and a range of quality sake (Japanese rice wine) for a very authentic taste of Japan!

There’s plenty of room at our tables to stretch out and enjoy the atmosphere, and our friendly staff will make sure you have a great time.
