“always heading over there, but bad music.”
Review of savoury Japan

The salmon rice ball is probably the best (non-pie) lunch for under $5 in Dunedin. Unlike many of the other places, you can load up your plate with wasabi, pickled ginger, etc. and make a real go of it. The service is friendly, they have a high turnover so the food is fresh, and I end up heading over there at least once a week.

However, get ready for a blast of bad music. One day it's 80's, the next they were playing the same Chris Brown song over and over again. It's easy to take it in as part of the scene, though.

Savoury Japan offers dine-in or take-away service for their extensive selection of sushi, noodle, and rice dishes. I visited on a Wednesday afternoon and my teriyaki chicken stirfry was ready very quickly after placing my order. The place was absolutely buzzing with school kids, so obviously they've won over the local crowd. The portions here were huge, especially considering the stirfry was less than $10! The amount of chicken alone left me very satisfied. Good taste and great value - check it out!

My daughter & I had a rice balk each. They were better than I have ever had. However the music was real loud. Also it had a lot of sweating in it. I'll be getting take out next time

If you don't mind eating good for value food with 140 db eclectic music blaring in the background, then look no further. Fast service and above average quality food with generous serving sizes.

Good value, good range, and efficient service. Love going here, and there is even outdoor seating. I only eat rice balls not actual sushi so it was nice to have a nice range.
