Amazing meal. Fast and fresh. We recommend ordering 5-6 entrees and dine as a banquet. Perfect! Favourite dishes were Fried Camembert and the Chicken Kaarage

We came to Wanganui for the Open Studios and our Wanganui friends chose the venue. We all loved our delicious food. I wish you were in Queenstown! Thank you.

We have eaten here as a family twice in the last month and have enjoyed the experience. Food is pretty good, sushi is delicious, service can be a little slow at times. Teriyaki chicken and chicken karage is very good. Would recommend and will return
