“Authentic Japanese restaurant”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This Restaurant does not have a broad menu card but what they do they do to perfection. The Sushi I ordered was very lovely arranged and the Japanese curry my girlfriend ordered was also a excellent meal. For Wanaka this is very good place to eat also if you are on a low budget.

“A gem”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This seemed authentically Japanese, particularly as I ordered an assortment of unusual morsels (all delicious although it did not quite amount to a full meal). The host was particularly charming, and welcomed families. A cozy environment and lovely experience.

“Lovely small Japanese restaurant”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Our neighbor from where we stayed in Wanaka worked at this restaurant as a chef, so we had take a look. We had a great meal. Their JFC (Japanese Friend Chicken) is amazing and the fried squid too. Would come back anytime!

“Nice & fast.”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Good size meal for price paid. Was a lot of rice & an ok amount of katsu pork. Would purchase again though it was nice.
Also had the tempura octopus. They were ok but probably would not get those again.
Got takeaway & it was nice & quick.

“Rice”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I had an evening meal of salmon teriyaki. The flavour and sauce were great, although the portion of salmon was moderate. To my surprise, the meal didn't come with rice. I had to pay an extra $3 to have a bowl of rice, which turned out to be rather unattractively stuck together in clumps. This lack of attention to the quality of the rice was a disappointment.
