Eating at Midori, Oamaru

The meals are very small and the prices too high for what you received. We went with about 20 people and most of us had finished before others received their meal. They appeared to be very busy with takeaways but forgot about the restaurant.

Two dinners while in Oamaru, both Bento Boxes with warm sake. Small restaurant but with adequate seating while consistent traffic for take-aways.

After getting off the train in Oamaru we needed somewhere close by to fill our famished tummies. Spotting Midori on the corner we went in for a looksee. We had a look at the menu first before deciding to grab some of their already made up sushi boxes. Price wise they were about what I'd normally pay if not a... More

As I have been heard the food is good at Midiri maybe i had too high expectation?? Prawns are very noticable they were from frozen package , chicken was super dry. Menu said "traditional japanese dish" as far as i know Japanese cusine is far nicer than Midori's standard. What a shame . Below than average

Our family of 4 went to Midori for tea. The waitress pointed out our table rather than taking us to our seats.

The restaurant is small and very cute, they have some interesting takes on the usual dishes. Not cheap, but the food is simply delicious!

I dropped in to Midori before heading off to work one evening and was a bit gutted that there was no pre-made sushi that I could have, I was about to leave when the lady behind the counter assured me that she could make me some sushi in no time. I was a bit anxious as I was already running... More

Got a takeaway dinner here and it was great. Japanese is a favourite and Midori rates right up at the top for flavour. Service could have been a little more upbeat
