“Could do better”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Had dinner here while we were in Dunedin at this establishment. There are two shopfronts for Minami. One looks like for takeaway meals and the other shopfront next door for more leisurely dining.
Not exactly the best Japanese food we've had on our holiday trip of South Island, NZ. It is passable at best.

“WORST SUSHI EVER!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

The sushi here was awful! The tuna roll was made with canned cooked tuna, disgusting! Another roll had cooked chicken in it. I have never had "sushi" with chicken. It was not on the menu that this was made with chicken. This was a poor excuse for sushi. I would never eat here again.

“Dirty!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We kept going back thinking that eventually they would clean the place, now we have given up on it. Tables always sticky and for goodness sake, clean out that water bottle! Toilet is disgusting!

“Unpleasant food, cheap price”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

I ordered the crumbed chicken bento box, the miso soup bowl was half filled, the chicken refried, dry and with brown sauce on it. The cabbage salad was in edible as it was so bitter. Two tiny pieces of salmon sushi came with it, the salmon obviously from the off cuts of another meal...they were tiny slivers no longer than 2 cm and about 3 mm thick.

With the abundance of japanese restaurants in the city AVOID this one.

I think the lonely planet guide book is very wrong about this place, tourists be warned.
