I've driven past Yuzu Japanese Restaurant a lot but have never really noticed it. Only came across Yuzu while walking along Ponsonby Road one day and finally decided to give it a go last week for a late dinner.

The place was still fairly busy for a Tuesday night and was quite cosy as the tables are set up quite close to one another. There is enough space to be comfortably seated though.

Service was okay. Prompt and friendly. The chef, assuming he's the owner, was quite friendly.

Ordered a chicken katsu donburi, chicken udon and grilled eggplant as entree. Food was pretty good. The donburi and udon were tasty and prepared well. The grilled eggplant tasted really good. My only gripe though is that they only gave 3 slices of the eggplant as opposed to half an eggplant as they do in some other restaurants. The lack of eggplant was supplemented with avocado and a salad though. Still thought that the eggplant dish wasn't as worth it,though.

All in all, a rather satisfying dinner. Definitely going back as I see that they serve sashimi don, which I can't seem to find at many other places.
