The latest eating out at Kawasemi was rather average. Bento box offerings were a lot of over fried and over seasoned morsels. A previously excellent chirashi zushi has been removed from menu and should go back on with the large elegant plate as it was a highlight. There seemed to be a new menu and it's just not as good....

My friend and I have been working our way through every Japanese restaurant in Hobart. Kawasemi was the last on our list It is out of town a little bit, in Moonah but getting there was remarkably easy (I was scared I would get lost) and there is plenty of parking in a large public car park out back just...

This little japanese restaurant is tucked away in a small shopping arcade in Moonah, a part of Hobart not usually where you'd look for a speciality place. As we were in the area we decided to give lunch a go and were very pleasantly surprised, both by the food and the prices. For a Monday, there place was pretty full... More

I quite often pick up takeaways for lunch from Kawasemi, dined in for dinner for the first time last night with my partner and a friend. We all had different bento boxes and each was great! The desserts looked really nice but we were far too full to try, great value for around $20-25 too.

This charming little place is hidden away in an arcade in Moonah, of all places. It's well worth the trek. We dined in a biggish group (ten or so people). My friend and I shared the chicken yakitori skewers as an entree, three good sized and beautifully flavoured sticks of chicken thigh meat. I had tempura as a main, a... More

Seriously?? how are people raving about this.. expensive as hell! $8.50 for a sushi roll when I could go to any Japanese place and get one for less than half that! ($3.50) and they are some pretty damn nice Japanese places that do sushi for cheap around here. Disgusted.

The staff are the biggest sweethearts ever, the food is deliciously amazing and we had been surprised at how quickly we were seated and served. They gave us extra ice cream with our dessert for free "just because" and really valued our opinions and feed back which is what all businesses should take into consideration! The food is marvelous and... More
