“Awesome Bar!! Funnest place to start a night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

This sake bar has a ridiculously fun atmosphere it's jovial and communal, everyone is getting involved sake bombs all around. The service here is great, the guys have a rad goofy sense of humor. Perfect for an exciting stop on a date or drinks and a bit of food with friends.

“Yakitori Daruma is da Bomb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Yakitori Daruma is a great fun night out for a group of friends. Good food,cheap prices, kooky service - what's not to like?? And of course the sake bomb!!

It has a great vibe and is a not to be missed restaurant in Queenstown. Don't go if you want a silver service experience!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

With great food, excellent staff who really love their customers to enjoy the Sake Bomb experience this is a Queenstown experience not to be missed if you're looking for a fun night out with friends. If you're peckish when you're there the food is great too!!
