A regular lunch spot for me to grab takeaway sushi. The salmon always tastes great and I am a fan of the fried chicken on a stick! Reasonable priced and you can eat in or takeaway. The menu food I have tried is also nice.

TJ Katsu was one of the first sushi places I went to in Wellington. I really liked their window, showing different main dishes. However, knowing really well made european sushi, this was not as good as it looked. Not good, not bad, just average. Another...More

Nice little spot for lunch, very filling for the main portions. Tastes good, can't go far wrong. You can choose a main meal or takeout trays of sushi, and there's a nice level of choice.

Cannot go wrong here! There are a limited number of things you can dine in, and everything we have had is good, good, good. Authentic Japanese.

Every sauce is home made with no MSG. Secret is lots of fresh vegetables and fruit in it. We use super-fresh meats and fish to enhance the quality of dishes. Good portion and reasonable price :) We are licensed restaurant selling Sake, Wine, beer and Soju. We also have various Sushi for lunch and dinner. Thanks for supporting us. We will always try our best to make FRESHER, HEALTHIER, TASTIER, BIGGER and MORE AFFORDABLE dishes. Thank you ;)
