“Best Japanese in Launceston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I love this place. The food is excellent. It is only a small place but big on friendly service. Most of the time you can walk in without reservations.

“Quick, clean and nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Finding an open restaurant on Sunday night in Launceston can be a challenge. Kaizen is a small Japanese restaurant that seats about 25 max, usually I don't entertain anything Japanese due to my self imposed ban on their whaling activity but since the Western Australian government has started culling sharks I have no leg to stand on. The food is fresh and comes straight from kitchen to table so it's hot, the service was friendly and quick. My only complaint they had run out of ice cream for dessert.

“so delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The food here is AMAZING, the beef and chicken cooked to perfection! so tender and full of Japanese flavor! So yummy! we definitely recommend you eat at Kai-zen when you visit Launceston. My husband and I randomly went to Kai-zen for dinner and absolutely loved it! We walked in without a booking and were seated instantly! The owner is so lovely and welcoming and all the staff are so kind and so professional.

“Acceptable food but”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

unwelcoming service, main chef had a bad attitude and food was a bit overpriced. Food itself was acceptable, closed to the hotel otherwise probably won't visit again.
