Having travelled to Japan we were very surprised to find this small authentic Japanese restaurant in Wanaka. We had a great vegetarian bento box and vegetarian ramen, accompanied by a lovely local white wine. It's a very small space - recommend calling ahead to book a table and avoid disappointment.

Returned here 3 of 5 nights in Wanaka. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere clearly favoured by locals. Lovely food. Great gyoza.

Very good food (Our favourite was the teriyaki thingies)
Decent Price
Big Portion (enough for sharing)
Serve alchohol
Very nice hosts
Definitely recommended, But maybe it's best to call first and do the rsvp since it was quite full during it peak hours

My husband and I visit Sasanoki regularly for both lunch and dinner and the food is always great and the staff are very attentive and welcoming. Can't fault it & we often bring friends & family along when they come to town to visit. See you soon! Don't ever change!
