Very Good Japanese

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

Whenever I go to Midori, the service is the slowest in the whole town. If you want sushi that is not already made, it takes up to 20 minutes to make the sushi. This is not a great place to eat-in either. My family and I have waited for over 35 minutes for our food every single time we go... More

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.

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 table had not been properly cleaned as we could tell the soy sauce etc had not been moved so the table could be wiped. We had sushi for an entrée to share but we weren't given individual...

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