Yin & Yang

Our eatery reflects the ancient Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang (Dark and Bright), which describes how opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. The Yin Yang philosophy represents perfect balance, which is where the word ‘Zen’ originated. 

Our Logo is an unclosed circle.

We’d like you to stop your hectic daily life for a break to pursue the Zen state in your mind while enjoying every bite of our top quality sushi and dumplings.

We use the highest quality ingredients such as free-range chicken, free-range eggs and Marlborough King Salmon.

We care about our environment by using sustainable products where we can – avoiding traditional plastic sushi containers and using biodegradable kraft paper packaging. Caring for our New Zealand environment is very important to us.


Our sushi is made by highly trained professional sushi chefs. Our chefs not only ensure our sushi tastes delicious, they pursue perfection to present the sushi in the highest standard, which is sure to please the eye!

Our customers are always delighted by our array of beautifully presented sushi.

You decide what combination of sushi you want and how many pieces you want by using PYO style alongside the traditional pre-packed boxes of sushi.



Make sure you try our famous dumplings. We wanted to bring a taste of home – the traditional dumplings lovingly “made by mum” are what we offer – and they have gained a huge reputation around Christchurch.

The dumplings are made with honest ingredients of locally sourced fresh meat, vegetables and herbs, with no MSG and no additives.

Make sure you dip the dumplings into our very special Zen sauce!
