“Great Value, Average Food”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Was planning to go Two Chefs for dinner and decided on The Jitsu as my craving for Japanese food kicked in that night. Upon entering the restaurant, we waited awhile before we were ushered to our table as the staffs were rather busy.

We had the Sashimi, Jitsu Plate and one of the set bento. The hot dishes served were served lukewarm, which, in my opinion, is bad. The Teriyaki beef was hard; so hard that I actually had a hard time chewing them! The Sashimi turned out pretty decent though.

Overall, prices were competitive and good value for money. However, the quality of food was quite disappointing. Service was prompt and friendly.

“Consistent service & food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Always a great place for fresh Japanese. Would highly recommend to visitors to Dunedin The Bento boxes have pickles, appetisers, come with miso, the sashimi is incredibly fresh and there is enough of everything. Service is always good and the staff are attentive making sure you are not kept waiting.
