Tempura vegetable dish a delight as was the teriyaki chicken. Meals in small or large size so perfect for all appetites. Awesome looking dish delivered to another table - a seafood feast packed into a bamboo? boat. Good drinks list, friendly service, would go again.

The staff were friendly and helpful, but for me the sashimi just did not cut the mustard. The quality of the fish was poor, sinewy and grey in places. I would not go back again.

Lovely food and the service is always exceptional. You seldom have to book and it is situated in the centre of Queenstown

If you are after true Japanese cuisine, do come here! The service is authentically Japanese, friendly, courteus & efficient. Don't be fooled by their price as each serving is humongous! Sushi, sashimi, nabe & karage are all superb. Highly recommend

We ate late and headed into Minami around 8pm. We ordered beef fillet tempan, seafood tempan and salmon. None of us believed that the beef was fillet more like blade steak, some of the seafood tasted very strong. To make matters worse a group of...More

I love this place, 5 years on the food and service just as good as it was over the last times we've been here. It's always busy but we always manage to get a table.

We are shown as a Japanese Restaurant, but for the last few days our business doesn't show on Tripadviser. but is shown in the desert section. Is there any reason for this.
