“Unexpecting surprise!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We met the place in a chilly evening and felt warm for the service and food! 意外的惊喜,没想到会尝到这么美味的日本料理,厨师的的确确用心去做一件食物艺术品给客人。服务也很贴心。值得国内常吃日本菜的吃货来品。价格其实并不比国内高,我们吃的是质量!这是回转寿司无法比美的。

“The best Japanese restaurant in Christchurch!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Ace Wasabi was just fabulous. Even before we got through the door, our car was valet parked which was a surprise! We were shown to a table in the conservatory area beautifully decorated with fairy lights and leaves making the atmosphere so romantic. The food and service were prompt, not rushed and just perfect. The staff were very polite, and the chef brought out our beef dish and waited to see if it was perfect! Which it was, there arent many places where you witness the pride and passion of a chef! It has to be said, the best Japanese in Christchurch. Only downside, it is a little pricey...BUT well worth paying for as it was brilliant. Had a great night, highly reccomended and will definitely be back.
Thank you.

“Good but felt too pressured by staff”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

My husband and I had a teppenyaki meal for our wedding anniversary. Not our first visit to Ace Wasabi, or our last. The food was up to its usual very high standard. Felt more than slightly intimidated by the number and vigilance of waitstaff who were hovering and snatched away dishes as the last morsel was lifted off them. We finished our meal, declined dessert and felt pressured not to linger - getting out the door 55 minutes after arriving! This was really a bit of a damper on the evening.
