We had a lovely meal after a long drive down from putaruru! We where in the restaurant around 8:30 pm but the waitress was really friendly and we really had the feeling we were welcome! The sushi was amazing! Fresh, all different kinds of fish and sushi! The restaurant was closed when we passed it on the way back, otherwise we would have stopped there again! Great way to start our holiday down south and we'll definitely be back!

I've been here a few times before, but had forgotten how good this place really is. Quality of the food, service, friendliness, price all prove it's possible to combine these attributes to produce something special. Quality of food? Well they take advantage of the fact that Nelson is the largest fishing port in Australasia and has a specialist company exporting sushi grade salmon to Japan. Masa should open a restaurant management school but then he could lose his competitive advantage. Be sure to book!

We'd had a long day with Marchfest and needed something to refuel with. The Pork dish was so tender and the sushi platter really filling! Drinks were reasonably priced. Affordable and tasty. My only complaint is that the sushi platter had obviously been made in advance and stored chilled, it was far too cold.
Complimentary green tea to finish the meal was appreciated.
