Queenstown is a tourist town and has a wide selection of restaurants, from fast food to silver service. We like cafes for their casual ambience, mid range in price and unpretentious. We chose Kappa Japanese restaurant, upstairs in the pedestrian mall. It was quite faithful to our usual oriental tastes, plain surroundings, busy, tables all full. We chose a mix of dishes from our long time favourites of Agedashi Tofu, Teppanyaki Chicken and Sashimi. We also ordered a Beef Tataki dish – a cold rare steak dish with Tataki sauce - oishi des!
With a glass each of local wine, Amisfield Pinot Gris it was served in usual speedy and bustling style.
We would go back (and you can’t beat those South Island white wines!)

It is a very small restaurant tucked away upstairs in the mall. We sat in the enclosed balcony so it didnt feel too close.

There were four of us and we shared bits and pieces. The sashimi was very fresh as was the sushi. Try the aubergine with walnuts, great.
The two vegeterians with us were easily catered for. I think that if you were having a main meal, the servings would perhaps not be big enough, but sharing everything was great. Dont miss the salmon, the lovely fresh salad, calamari, pickled vegetables, oysters.......Im sure everything we didnt try would be just as nice.

Good service and the price was around $35 a head.

I would definitely go again.

Simple place but with tasty food and good price. The staff was so attentive and the food was so good that we went back on the following day. Highly recommended!

Kappa is the best Japanese restaurant in Queenstown. Natsuko is an excellent host and will make sure that you are given prompt service. Each night they have specials, so make sure you bring your appetite to try out all of the amazing tastes. Good value, excellent quality and spot on service is their trademark.
