I have been to Hede a number of times in previous years. From memory I had a nice meal and service was good. On my recent visit though, the service was average and the food was nothing worth mentioning, which was a shame.
The pork in the Katsu-don was soggy and thin, with no crispness. Was served on luke warm rice and a massive amount of onion... very strange, I have never had onion served with Katsu-don even in Japan.
Miso and takoyaki were nice but nothing to rave about.
Hede has really gone down hill. There are a lot of better Japanese restaurants in Wellington such as TJ Sushi and Bento or Miyabi. It needs to pick up its game if it wants to survive in Wellington where choice is vast.
