“Best Japanese in New Zealand!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

I went here with a big group and we has the private dining room.
We all ordered a different set menu options (around $54 - $60 each), which includes a tuna/salmon/green salad, sushi & sashimi, tempura vegetables/prawns, rise and meso with sizzling meat AND a desert of your choice!
Value for money is an understatement!
Going back here for sure!

“Top notch japanese restaurant”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at nautilus and went downstairs on a cold rainy Wednesday night in July to find a fantastic little Japanese restaurant. Small but perfectly formed. Great table by the window. Fab service. Lovely water glasses. Well presented and tasty food picked from a menu with so many choices. Tempura prawns and sashimi fantastic. Serving sizes good. Reasonable pricing. Will definitely recommend and return. Japanese dining fans will enjoy.

“Truly outstanding”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Heard it was good here, and made a fairly last minute reservation, which I think is really needed as busy. Staff were very friendly and attentive. We were a little unsure about the menu, and asked for advice, plus what we fancied. Nothing was a problem, and they adjusted menu to suit our palate. Truly exceptional sashimi (although the purists would say it wasn't cut perfectly!) with wonderful presentation, followed by great rice and noodle dishes. Excellent.

“Great service and good food”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Been here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it on both occasions. The food is delicious, beautifully presented and thoroughly enjoyable. The waiting staff are very polite and attentive - sometimes too much so and a little more privacy would be appreciated.
My only criticism would be that some of the portion sizes - especially the tempura - are a little on the small side for the price.
