Bento boxes from the Japanese takeaway shop in Hataitai have become the regular takeaway option for hundreds of local customers since the owners launched in December.
The Kaburaki couple who started the Japanese Kitchen on Waitoa Road before Xmas 2009, ran a successful Japanese restaurant in Invercargill, but chose to move up to this spot in Wellington so they could enjoy more interaction with their customers. They love interacting with the locals Wellingtonians, saying oePeople are so friendly. We like to meet people, have a conversation and share their experience. Some customers just get off the bus in Hataitai and get Bento boxes on their way home.
