Great service from a young enthusiastic team. Food is excellent, highlight being the buttercorn springrolls and fried chicken. Well worth a visit

I wanted somewhere special to go for my birthday dinner in Christchurch. Japanese style tapas, a cool interior and excellent cocktails and service made it a really special night. We had several tapas dishes, including the crispy fried chicken, the coleslaw, and a few yakatori skewers (lamb and prawns) and cannot fault any of them. Delicious, well cooked and innovative...

What a great place! Totally lived up to the hype. Delicious food with plenty of new taste sensations for tired taste-buds. Great wine list, excellent service. Definitely a place to go.

I had been to the Monday Room for lunch and late night drinks before. I recently went there with my girl friends for dinner. It was great! We had a small plate and medium plate each. The medium plates are not the main dishes that kiwis think of. Boys probably will be still hungry after a small and medium plate... More

Japanese tapas! Didn't what to expect but loved it. Excellent food, excellent service, excellent wines. Yes, it is a bit noisy but we didn't find it intrusive. Just a good, bar type atmosphere. Recommended, especially for a meal shared between friends looking to have a bit of craic.

Although a stroll from the centre, well worth the visit. Sat inside, while outside with the heaters looked nice as well. Good host, awesome dishes to share. Japanese style tapas, all of them were fun for the tongue!

have driven past this restaurant/bar so often and finally had the opportunity to go for lunch there. It was a delight, meal very tasty Japanese small plates. Only disappointment was the oysters were unavailable that day, so we will have to return there for another delicious meal. Parking a problem so allow plenty of time to park car. Maybe the... More

This restaurant was a real surprise! It's like a tapas bar offering small and medium-sized plates of treats to share. Everything we had was FAB! The Japanese Fried Chicken and the Blue Cheese Polenta Fries with Truffle Aioli were our stand-out favorites. Unfortunately, the Vegetable Tempura had already cooled by the time it was served, and I like my tempura... More
