Tanuki’s Cave or as it is known to locals, “The Cave” IS Auckland’s  Japanese yakitori and kushiage bar. While it can be a little hard to find on your first visit, it’s one of Auckland’s hidden gems!

While Yakitori literally means ‘grilled chicken’, The Cave offers a wide variety of meats, seafood and vegetable dishes.  All Yakitori dishes are grilled on bamboo skewers and basted with our special in-house sauce or grilled with salt.

We also have a large selection of Kushiage – bread crumbed, deep fried morsels like mashed Kumara coated in almonds, pork belly or shitake mushrooms stuffed with chicken mince

The Cave has on offer an fantastic selection of different Japanese sakes and genuine Japanese beers.
