Nice place to have lunch. Very friendly waitresses and the sushi and the tempura is nice. I normally go for the Sushi Bento, which is with $15 reasonable priced. Downs are that there is no wine under $10 per glass available and the last times was always some uneatable seaweed in the miso soup.

I came here after reading the other reviews and it seemed like the place to go for some authentic Japanese food. However when we got there it was a HUGE let down. The two of us had the bento and the soft shell crab entree. The crab was very dry and the ponzu sauce they gave was nothing more than a watered down soy sauce. Even more appalling than the food was their service. The attitude of the waiter was downright rude and any dish he would bring, he would just plonk it down on the table and leave without saying anything.

NB. i know that prices in Queenstown is a little steep as it is a popular travel destination, but the price was outrageous for the quality and the amount of food that they

Overall, i would not be back when i visit Queenstown next time

We stopped here for lunch yesterday and as always everything was perfect, from the prompt, friendly service, which always has a smile on, to the amazing sushi bento box, starting off with a miso soup then moving onto the box- including 6 pieces of sushi, 2 tempura vege, 1 tempura prawn, 1 prawn nirgri and a seaweed salad. All for under $15... We will definately be back... thanks to all the staff at Hikari, you guys are amazing!!

Our experience with Hikari was absolutely exquisite -from the warm greeting at the front door to the perfectly presented food. Every aspect was top quality. Starting off with Hikari's complementary miso soup- our taste buds were prepared for the flavour-bursting mains to come. The dish my parents ordered was a platter (sorry I can not remember the correct title), it was compiled by a whole variety of foods that were quite different from each other, but still Hikari made every little piece of the platter better than the last (which was well done considering the vast variety of foods on the platter). Our senses were 100% satisfied as our eyes were filled with vibrant colours as we watched other dishes being served. The service was cheerful we were made to feel very welcome. Due to this great food and welcoming atmosphere we again dinned at Hikari and enjoyed every bit of it. The restaurant itself was brilliantly presented with crafty bits and pieces giving multiple conversation starters. The menu is very extensive and caters for all. For anyone wanting the whole dining package, Hikari is the place to choose!!

My son and I save going to Hikari Japanese for our last night on our last two visits I. Queenstown. It's a cute little restaurant with a great vibe, friendly staff and great food. The sashimi platter was great and the chef sent out an extra vegetarian treat for my 13 year old. Would definitely recommend.
