The Terriyaki Chicken Don was so good. The steamed rice is the point and they did a very good job. Must try.

A local recommended Kohan for dinner, and we certainly weren't disappointed. We weren't super hungry but we ordered a few dishes to share. The blue cod tempura was out of this world - light, crispy batter and the most beautifully cooked, tender juicy cod. The...More

We stopped here for lunch recently - lunch with a spectacular view! The food was delicious, we had chicken katsu and teriyaki salmon. Also enjoyed the chocolate fondant for dessert - quite unique!! Definitely will return next time we are in Tekapo!

Our Japanese friend in Queenstown recommended going to Kohan for Salmon don and salmon sushi because salmon is the only thing produced in Tekapo. So we had both salmon don and salmon sushi there. The salmon was fresh and tasty. It's worth going.

Enjoyed myself and ordered plenty of food. Must try the raw beef. Love the Salmon Don that has the tamagoyaki and salmon bits hidden under the rice. Desserts are a surprise as the cotton candy impressed all the diners around.

We love Japanese so were looking forward to our teriyaki chicken. Unfortunately it came out cold, slimy and completely bland. It was honestly the worst meal I've ever paid for. Very small serve also with a bit of basic salad on the side. Definitely do...More
