Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First of all, our order was messed up twice. The food was not really Japanese. Udon soup tasted of MSG… the fish in the seafood udon soup was not cooked. The ramen broth was very bland and looked nothing like the picture. Not recommended.

From the moment we entered the restaurant, the welcome and service were exceptional. We came with two children (8 and 11), Grandmother, Aunty and Mum and they all loved the night from start to finish. The food is great, good quality meat and seafood. What...set this place apart though was the Teppanyaki Chefs. We had Jason who went the extra mile to make sure everyone had fun. He sung, danced and had many tricks and jokes. High energy fun and the time flew by. Easy parking and a nice change from Central Queenstown. The decor is funky and cool. If you are seeing authentic Japanese service and style you may spot some differences but I would choose this restaurant any day for the full experience and laughs our group received!More

We ordered take away on both occasions. The flavours are beautifully balanced and not too salty. The menu options are good and the servings are plentiful. Everything was fresh and tender. The staff are very friendly. We look forward to returning one day. Thankyou Hikari...team.More

We love our Teppanyaki so had this table booked well in advance. It was a great choice as Hikari delivered. Our chef at the Teppan Table was amazing! Awesome cook and very entertaining. All staff were friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

If I had used the bathroom prior to ordering my meal I would have walked out. The state of the bathrooms was disgusting- worse than a pub at the end of a Friday night. The whole venue needs a good clean. The waitstaff were more...engaged with their phones than the customers. The only redeeming factor was Jason the teppanyaki chef- he was great entertainment and our table really enjoyed his energy. Extremely expensive for what you get compared to other fantastic japanese options in town. Won’t be returning in a hurryMore
