“Always amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

As a local, i've tried a lot of restaurants in Queenstown and Minami Jujisei is one of my favorites!
Last time, we were 9 and didn't book and it was packed but Masako and Hiro managed to find us a table! We all had a great dinner and we will be back very soon! ;)

ps:the Spider Roll and Deep Fried Icecream are a MUST!

We enjoyed our dining experience at Minami. Very tasty sashimi and sushi with great service. Reasonable prices but good quality products used.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The staff here were very friendly. We did have to wait for at least an hour for our main course but the food was quite good. Due to the long wait we got a free meal. Very good customer service and much appreciated for recognising their mistake.

“Overrated and disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Ordered pan seared scallops and teriyaki chicken set meal and was totally disappointed with the flavor. Very blend can only taste soy sauce but nothing else. Crayfish miso soup was the highlight of the night. Beef tataki was very dry and overcooked (but the chili paste tasted good in that dish). Also had soft shell crab sushi roll and it was average as well (have had better ones). Price was average and I must admit the service was good.

“Tasty.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

My only issue with this yummy restaurant is that its popular with large groups which in turn makes it very noisy inside. Service was excellent as was the food
