Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food at this spot. The owner Yuki clearly take pride in his fish and presentation. A better than we've seen choice in fish-so refreshing for the usual "how many ways can we serve you salmon and tuna sushi places" in New Zealand. A real treat and a great value for the quality.

Food was absolutely stunning and tasted incredibly good we can't wait to go back!
Sashimi platter and spicy tuna rolls two if the very best!
Only thing we could fault was could have been a little warmer in there.
Can't wait to go back.

Restaurant cold. Food mediocre. I was served my main but hadn't received my starters. Advised it had been given to another person at our table. I had to reorder and pay again. Food really no better than a local sushi take away. Wine list poor. We looked forward to our evening out but we were disappointed.

We NEEDED this place in Nelson. Stunning sushi, melt in your mouth, perfectly prepared and so fresh. We ordered edamame, agedashi tofu, prawn tempura, Ora King Salmon Sushi roll, and tempura prawn sushi roll and everything was prepared fresh in front of us. The wait staff are lovely, especially Victoria, and we really enjoyed the whole experience. Will be back as soon as we can!

Another great night at Yuki's wafu bristro, as they say you eat with your eyes, we sat in front of him at the sushi bar so got the pleasure of watch each and every dish prepared with finess, each piece put in its place on each platter, LOVED the nigiri little sculptures of yumminess.

Best sushi hands down any where if your in Nelson take the time to eat here but make a book so you don't miss out
