This is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have eaten at. Each dish was amazing, Wagyu was amazing, lamb just incredible and the Sashimi so fresh and beautifully presented. This is a real secret in Queenstown. Only new but still to be fully discovered....More

Walking past we almost missed this place, thank goodness we didn't! We loved everything about this restaurant. The wait staff are so friendly and welcoming (as are the owners!) and the food - wow! We will definitely be visiting again next time we're in Queenstown.
