We had sashimi both as takeaway and in the restaurant and the fish was uniformly fresh and delicious. Stay away from the fried salmon as it appeared to me to be over cooked. But I would go back for sashimi and sushi, and the location...More

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

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.

Came across this spot when craving sashimi and what a luck that we did. Incredible food, extraordinary service and chilled atmosphere. Ate way more than intended and would gladly do it again for dinner tomorrow.

Though it is the best Japanese restaurant in Queenstown, cannot say the same about overall experience in this restaurant. It's pretty good but they can do better. When I come to Queenstown, I will go to this restaurant again.

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.
