Every sauce is home made with no MSG. Secret is lots of fresh vegetables and fruit in it. We use super-fresh meats and fish to enhance the quality of dishes. Good portion and reasonable price :) We are licensed restaurant selling Sake, Wine, beer and Soju. We also have various Sushi for lunch and dinner. Thanks for supporting us. We will always try our best to make FRESHER, HEALTHIER, TASTIER, BIGGER and MORE AFFORDABLE dishes. Thank you ;)

My go to for sushi

I eat here several times a week. Great, reliable sushi. Lots of options. Everything always tastes fresh. Staff are relatively nice, and they are always very busy.

A must visit for Wellington!! It gets a bit busy around lunch but you don't have to wait more than 5-10 min for food. Really good service. Bento portions are huge!

Great food for a good value. My wife very much liked the sushi a-la-carte here. I had the Chicken Katsu and it was delicious.

I've been to a few sushi places in central Wellington but this place has got to be the best yet. With alot of pieces being just one dollar it's quite good value too.

I must confess that this was our first experience of Japanese cuisine so I can't make any meaningful comparisons but we found the food (chicken katsuodon and fish teriyaki) to be excellent and served, as it is, with miso soup to be ridiculously good value. (I'm interested to note other reviewers commenting on the authenticity of the food.) The service... More

I regularly visit TJ Sushi & Udon. They are conveniently located, reasonably priced, have a great selection of authentic Japanese cuisine and if you time it right you can avoid the long lunchtime ques. My biggest issue with TJ Katsu & Udon is the service. You grab a menu on your way in and find a spare table to sit... More

I love this place. The food is great and I love the presentation of the food and the self service. We must have been lucky or just timed it well. We arrived and the line up was quite shirt at 12:30pm. There was plenty of selections and all that we had were delicious.

I tend to go with my son as we both love sushi. It doesn't matter when they have a great variety and its fresh. I like the miso soup. Good value for money and across from the rereading cinema. Mike

A hole in the wall place, easily missed but make the effort to find it. We eat in, with me choosing from the glass cabinets what i wanted, buffet style while my wife ordered from the menu. $44 for the two of us and we waddled out. Great variety of sushi and the like. Miso was excellent and hot. We... More

This is a cute little restaurant with manga art painted on the walls. Friendly staff, but the kitchen was very slow. The food was good and quite inexpensive for Wellington. I had some of the best takoyaki I've ever had.
