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.

I have traveled all over the world and this place has the worst service out of all of the restaurants that I have been to. From the outside this place looks like a place to get a quick couple dishes of sushi but instead I had to ask for my drink three times before we got it. After an hour... More

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

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!

This tiny (what looks like a) family business has become my favourite stop for lunch when travelling through Oamaru. The Japanese restayrant can sit about 25 people inside and a few more outside but it also offers take-aways. It is locared basically on tge wharf, opposite the old rail station. Prices are decent and servings generous. The staff is friendly... More

Poor quality food. Did not resemble anything I have had in Japan. Service was mediocre and included a mix up in orders.
