Incredible Japanese, best in Christchurch I would think. Food fresh and tasty, service efficient. A little out of the way, but worth the trip.

We went there for a 21st celebration with about 30 other guests, so the restaurant was closed to the public. Service and food was superb. We had a set menu which was included about 10 dishes.

The service here is excellent and the food is delicious. We had rolls as well as nigiri. All the fish was fresh and tasted so good. The restaurant is quite small but you don't feel squished in your seat. Would definitely come back. 9/10
