Authentic Japanese cuisine in a friendly wee restaurant. A bit out of the way, a hidden gem in St Albans. The Sashimi was fresh and beautifully presented. As good as any Japanese food we have experienced in NZ.
We found this restaurant very average. There are some very good a Japanese restaurants in Christchurch, but this isn’t one of them. The sashimi was the best of the dishes we had, but the tempura prawns, and the teriyaki chicken were not up to standard....The chicken had obviously been reheated. One of the wait staff was very good, but the service was inconsistent.More
A welcoming ambiance, The restaurant was very warm on a cold Christchurch evening. The menu was extensive but we chose to share a range of starters all of which were excellent. The standouts were the Chicken Karage , the Agedashi tofu and prawn twists. Its...also BYO for wine as well.More
We are regular diners at Tomis. We love it here as we know the food is always fresh and tasty. I love my sashimi so I am quite fussy about the freshness. Never disappointed. My son recently had the Takoyaki (Octopus Balls) and he said...it’s the best he’s tasted in Christchurch.More
This was our first meal in New Zealand, so we are as yet unsure of what to expect in terms of the standard of food. If this restaurant was In Tokyo, I would rate the food as average, but as a neighbourhood restaurant in Christchurch...I think that it deserves a better rating. The tuna sashimi was very competent and tasty. The tempura prawns were good, but the pork Katsu, whilst tasty.
Service is effective and friendlyMore
I had the chicken bento as takeaway, they were delicious and good value. The person who served me was really helpful and friendly. I had to eat in the restaurant because it was hosing down with hail and I couldn't walk back. He didn't mind...me having my takeaway in the shop, he served me with water as well. Really good service and I am really grateful.More
