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

We are big fans of Midori and have been regulars for a couple of years now. Great for lunch, dinner or to take away, the food has never let us down and the service is usually prompt and with a smile but the staff turn over is high so service has sometimes been irregular but we have still never had...

This restaurant is in a run down part of the town and is very simple in appearance however the food was really good, lots of flavour and good portions. The waitress seemed more interested in her boyfriend however she was friendly enough and our service was okay.

We had prebooked a table on a Saturday, as had read on reviews that service could be poor. Arrived on time and we were served immediately with the only waitress taking our drinks order. She returned in a timely manner to take our order. As we wanted Japanese Sushi and shushumi we were told they had NO SEAFOOD! quite remarkable... More

Dear reviewer We are sorry to hear of your bad experience at Midori recently. In regard to not having any seafood, this will be because our seafood arrives fresh daily, as it comes from Dunedin we are subject to weather conditions. I believe the weekend you were there our seafoods were not not delivered due to the road being closed... More

Midori is a tiny Japanese restaurant run by some very friendly Japanese people! Food was authentic, delicious and came in a timely manner, and very reasonably priced. Everyone in the party was very pleased with their dinner, even those not used to and a bit unsure of Japanese cuisine. Likewise, some of our group are huge fans of Japanese food,... More

I agree with the other reviews. Delicious sushi; we popped in for a quick lunch. You need to speak clearly, as it is run by authentic Japanese. Excellent customer service; when they did not have a tall glass for my daughter's iced chocolate, they provided the drink in a takeaway cup at no charge. We will return when next in... More

We wouldn't have found the place without our travel guide book, but luckily we did! Reasonable prices and we had excellent Sushi, perfect fresh Salmon Teriyaki & great Chicken Katsu, absolutely loved it!

This restaurant is in an unlikely spot, but well worth searching for. The food and service were excellent. I'll be back to try the sushi!
