All solid food choices perfectly prepared, I've been for both lunch and dinner (though lunch was only take away). Being from a very Japanese area (Honolulu, HI) this is the best casual Japanese dining I've had in Wellington. All of the food was perfectly prepared (deep fried items perfectly fried, sashimi slices very fresh) and had great flavors. Highly recommend... More

A little small for a big gathering, which there seemed to be at the time of our dinner, but never the less it was an amazing experience ! The food was brilliant, a lot of interesting choices! They really catered to all types of eating ! Only issue was some translation barriers with the waitress but nothing too hard to... More

A spur of the moment choice but there was a table for three in this quite small restaurant. The kitchen in full view produces the amazing food. We stuck to predictable choices (sashimi and tempura) all though I had the seared sashimi which was probably traditional but sliced a bit thin for me. The tempura was light and satisfying. I...

Wellington is generally not known for its Japanese food, but Tatsushi has changed that :) Very authentic and very tasty. Service could not be faulted. The Agadashi tofu was exceptional as was a delicate squid salad. Top marks if you like Japanese food.

Popped in here without a reservation on Friday night and were lucky enough to grab a table (it's a tiny restaurant with about 10 tables). The menu featured a number of sashimi and sushi dishes - we tried the salmon sashimi and were not disappointed. Also tried the large tempura plate (included prawns, fish and vegetable tempura) and the Angus... More

Visited my Son in Wellington and we fancied some Japanese food. Went to Tatsushi because It had been recommended to whims the best in Wellington. As I approached I liked the vibe big windows so the restaurant was airy and bright. I had been to Japan last year and this place as I walked in transported me back. We had... More

Love this place, I eat there at least once a week They have one of the best tempura I've ever had and the squid sumonomo salad is to die for. Make sure to try both lunch and dinner since they have 2 different menus

Pros: Authentic Japanese food. It's great to order a wide range entree sized plates and share. The daily specials are a nice touch. Good drinks menu. I've been twice and will definitely go again. Tatsushi is small and popular so make sure you book. Cons: Small place with basic decor. If you're eating at the window, there are plenty of... More

Unique and Excellent! Tatsushi is authentically Japanese. The head chef and all the staff are Japanese and only Japanese is spoken in the kitchen. Each dish is prepared with care to detail. All of the traditional selections are on offer and with a refreshing homemade twist. For example, locally sourced yuzu (Japanese citrus) are used to make Tatsushi's ponzu sauce;... More

Read the TripAdvisor review, so sought it out and found it lived up to the great reviews. We went for lunch, as a break from a day at Te Papa. Busy as so popular and had a short wait for a table, but worth the reward of the wait. Lunch prices around $15. Very reasonable, very fresh ingredients and attention... More
