About Us

Jizo was established in 1995, and has been widely applauded for its consistency in providing Dunedin with great quality meals at an extremely reasonable price!....Making it one of Dunedin's favourite BYO's in town!!

Owners Mat & Kerry have a passion for healthy eating and living! Having worked in the health and fitness industry as Personal Trainers for a combined total of 34years, it seemed only fitting to be serving fresh healthy food choices to the people of Dunedin.

We love to eat Japanese food!! Jizo was our favourite Japanese restaurant growing up in Dunedin!

We strive to provide customers with a relaxed atmosphere, supplying the freshest foods, with quality service!

Jizo appeals to a wide range of people and is family friendly. Known for feeding the students in Dunedin, travellers, and of course locals. We cater to many different food requirements, and now offer a booking service, so you can secure a seat at our popular restaurant.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
