As arguably the most beloved sushi restaurant in Charlotte, New Zealand Cafe is one of the best hidden gems in the city. We recommend their famous sushi boat. It serves two and includes soup and salad, the chef's selection of sushi and sashimi, and two other sushi rolls.

This place is one of the BEST kept secret in Charlotte. Located in a strip mall area, this tiny restaurant serves up big sushi flavors. I have never been disappointed in the delicious sushi. Although I have not ventured away from my "go-to-meal", I may venture out and try the lo mien next time. The ONLY reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating was because of the service today. The waitress was a little rude and got my order incorrect. Once I received the food, it was delicious. I will return.

This is a great place to get sushi in Charlotte! It is a small restaurant with not many seats, but the atmosphere was very nice and cozy. I got the sushi and sashimi combo and it was great! The fish was very fresh and tasty. Their menu is very big so there is something for everyone. Would recommend!

Hadn't been here in years. Stopped by for a late dinner. The person who took my order was pleasant. I really didn't know what I wanted; just wanted something spicy. She recommended a few different rolls. I wanted to try something different & went with the eel she was telling me about. I'd decided on one roll & wanted to change to just the last roll she suggested. Guess she didn't understand what I was saying with my mask on. Didn't realize til I was paying that she had 2 rolls on the order. Wasn't going to make it an issue & just paid. I also ordered a spring roll. She did ask my preference & I asked for crab. Was disappointed when I got home & realized it was fake crab. I guess with all the other fresh seafood, I thought it'd be real crab meat. I deducted a star from the review because of the service I received when I picked up my order. When my order was placed, I was told it'd be ready in 15 mins. I walked to the adjacent grocery store, picked up a few things & came back. When I got to the counter, I told the lady I was picking up a take out order. I believe she wore glasses & was older. She was doing something with receipts. I gave her my order number & she coldly just slid the glass partition, dropped the bag down, closed the partition, & went right back to whatever she was doing with the receipts. The sushi was good, but the service when I picked up the food left a bad taste in my mouth. Doubt I'll be back.

It's a small restaurant with a few tables for dine in. They also do take out. It's is very popular for take out and I can see why. The sushi is the best I've had in Charlotte. They have a rather large selection and the prices are decent.
