“Best Japanese in a long time”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

My partner and I spent 2 weeks in Queenstown and Hikari had some of the best food we've tasted since visiting Japan. The staff are all Japanese so you know it's authentic. They serve the good Japanese beer and are very friendly.

“Great Japanese”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

If you're looking for a great Japanese feed while in Queenstown, look no further! Ordered the sashimi set and seafood tempura with gyoza starters. The sashimi was delicate and fresh, each slice melting in my mouth while the tempura was lightly battered and also very tasty! The gyoza was a decent starter but nowhere near the quality of the mains. Had a friendly waiter named Yoshi!

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Very good place for a lunch although can get very busy. The Bento boxes (around $15) are a great choice and very good value for money. Food was very nice. Service was prompt and efficient.

“Of your stuck try the lunch box”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

I stick to the lunch box when I come here, that way I get a good selection, the staff always greet you and are very good even with English being a second language. Well worth a visit
