Me and my partner came to this restaurant for my birthday meal and it was one of the most disappointing restaurant experiences we have had in Queenstown. The staff were completely disinterested in us to begin with. Then when we asked for a couple of...things to be explained to us on the menu it just seemed like such an inconvenience and a hassle for them, almost treated us like we were stupid not completely understanding what each meal entailed? (the menu doesn't really have a description ot most meals, we eneded up having to Google what they where) Then when the food finally came out it was SWIMMING in oil! I don't mean just 'fried' I mean everything was DRIPPING in oil and that was the only texture, to the point that me and my partner agreed we'd rather just leave it that continue to eat it. Such a shame.More

We brought our daughter here for a Teppanyaki birthday dinner and it was so fun. The show was fantastic, James was great. Lots of fire and flying food. We’ll definitely come back!

Amazing food and great customer service. The portions are a good size too. There are a lot of yummy meals for just under $20. Definitely recommend the sweet and spicy fried chicken and bento box.

Had a Teppanyaki Lunch and based on reviews had high expectations. Yes the chef was entertaining and fun. The service was prompt and efficient. For the food we compare with what we have experienced in teppanyaki restaurants in Auckland. The vegetables were slightly overcooked for...our liking and overpowered with too much soy sauce meaning the delicate flavour of the different vegetables was lost. Same for the fried rice a brown seasoning sauce mixed through overpowered what would have otherwise been the clean flavours of the fried rice dish. Salmon was just ok, a little overcooked. Your individual Teppan experience at Hikari 19 Grant Road Queenstown may depend on your chef assigned to your teppan table.More
