“An ultimate 'Foodie' experience!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

If your after yakitori, this ticks all the boxes.
If you haven't tried it, this place will look after you.
The perfect way to refuel after a days skiing.
Highly recommend.

Sit at the bar and have the craic with the staff!

“Never disappointed!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had been trying to go here for ages but could never get a table until recently. It was absolutely worth the wait! It's our new favourite restaurant in Queenstown and we've been twice this week!

Service is always friendly, fast, happy and the staff know what they're talking about.
Food is so yum! Everything is inexpensive, quick and small so we usually order multiple courses and drinks. Saki bombs are a definite must-have for sure!

Atmosphere is very authentic and cozy, sitting at the bar is our favourite. I would take visitors and friends here and even writing this makes me want to come back again!!

I would probably recommend a booking here though, we always do and every time we're there it's packed no matter what night it is

“I've been looking forward to returning here for years!!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Great food. Great service. Great staff. A real dining experience. We were seated quickly even though the place was jam packed. Food was fresh and presented beautifully. Fair prices, good Sake and attentive service from staff that couldn't do enough to ensure our needs were met. It looks quite unassuming from the street, don't let that put you off, go in and you'll be guaranteed a great experience. Can't wait to return.

“Oishii!!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This place is so lovely, and the staff are very accommodating!
I went there the other night while it was closing, and they still welcomed us in for a sake bomb. Would definitely go again - great atmosphere.
