There are quite a few Japanese style restaurants in Queenstown. This restaurant was the top of the class. Their food was excellent and the service was what you would expect from the Japanese culture. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Went there for good reviews but with $220 spent, we were not satisfied at all yet not full. The seafood platter doesn’t worth the money at all and they forgot to serve oysters. The soup of shabu shabu does not have any flavour but the...More
