Good ambience Excellent food Poor service We ordered drinks , starter and mains together. Served mains before starter, reminded server twice for drinks. Served only after finishing half of the main meal. Spoiled the great food experience with poor service.

One of the very best Japanese food I have ever had in New Zealand and that includes some high-end eateries in Auckland too. Superb food, great customer service, and incredibly reasonably priced. Be sure to book soon!!!

Great staff and delicious food. The king prawn gnocchi was sublime! The sashimi was tasty and beautifully presented. I would definitely go back!

The sushi in Tatsumi is one of the best in New Zealand. The atmosphere is very welcoming and in the traditional Japanese style. Would strongly recommend Tatsumi if you come to Queenstown.

My husband and I recently stayed in Queenstown and indulged in some very fine and fancy dining over 5 nights at the best restaurants and luxury lodges Queenstown has to offer. Tatsumi was our 'cheapest' night out but OMG....OMG!!! This restaurant was beyond superb in...regards to both food and service. We were gutted to see so few people there. To all of you who read this review please go and enjoy the incredible food and service and keep this absolute treasure there for us and others to enjoy in future. Thank you Tatsumi.....you will be the first restaurant we book when we return to Queenstown.More

One of the best Japanese restaurants in New Zealand! Everything was delicious and the meats were cooked to perfection..basically fell off the bone. If I had only one day to spend in Queenstown, I'd be back here for dinner.

If you like Japanese food -that's the place to go! From the first minute till the end the dining experience is delightful. Flavors are so good and presentation is beautiful, highly recommending this restaurant for everyone.

Every dish we had was perfect. Very pricey but we enjoyed the evening. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. 5/5.

From the lovely owners, to the helpful and charming staff, this restaurant never ever disappoints. Impeccable quality of the food, service, drinks, and desserts, sets the bar. I have made my way through the entire menu a few times over the years and have never...been left thinking whatever I sample was only meh. Every dish is made with such care and attention to detail. Balance is always present. I travelled from Auckland to spend my birthday here again and it was made very special yet again. My only disappointment is that they moved the restaurant from Auckland so I can’t come more often.More
