Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited Hotaru after the lockdown was eased. They were so so careful- sanitizing the entire please every 15 minutes and ensuring all the visitors were comfortable. The food was five star as always! Even during this period paranoia- i would recommend this place to...anyone and everyone.More

Fantastic authentic Japanese and Korean food! Highly recommend it to anyone stopping by in Uyuni. The buffet breakfast is also an amazing deal.

Provide free wifi and free hot water which can also make up hot tea or coffee. Gyudon is too sweet but miso soup is good.

Our Japanese group have been traveling around South America and we missed Japanese cuisine after spending more than 11 days eating original food. When we found Hotaru, we almost cried! Who believes that we can eat Japanese food in Uyuni?! The taste was amazing and...so authentic! Thanks for proving us a great moment!More

My girlfriend & I visited this restaurant whilst we were in Uyuni. Although the place was empty everytime we walked past we decided to give it a go & was impressed. Most meals come with a miso soup, which was lovely. There is free tea...& water available & also the staff were accommodating to our needs. They were able to offer vegetarian options for us which was appreciated. I would come back and eat here again.More

We stopped off here for some dinner as we fancied something different to the many pizza and pasta offerings in this area of Bolivia. As a vegetarian, I asked for a dish without meat and had Yaki Soba. This was stir fried noodles and veg...that also came with a soup on the side. It was tasty and prepared quickly so no complaints! The staff were friendly and there was also a self service hot water and tea selection included.More

Tasty food. Decent portion size. Quick service. Friendly staff. Free WiFi. Warm room. All the food in the photo cost 135 Bs. We're British, so might not know what good Japanese food should taste like.

Hungry and really want to have Asian/Jap food. Saw good comments posted by some chinese travellers on the entrance and thus we went in. I ordered pork with rice and it came with miso soup. Soup is GREAT, missed asian/jap soup a lot and it's...really tasty. Pork has no taste except it's way too salty. Soaked all in water and still it's very salty. It's not a "real" japanese restaurant and the food is not prepared by japanese as well. Go in if u have been travelling away from Asia for long and desperate for asian food; but set your expectation - or try something else but not stir fry pork.More
