Smiley service staff. Good authentic Japanese food which surprised me!! Was recommended to come here by the owner of the apartment I stayed in. Nice ambience with the lake nearby.

The food was delicious (miso soup, prawn rolls,edamame, chicken and salmon teriyaki ) and the prices were ok (Cheap). Great service as well.

You should book ahead as this restaurant is usually full, the food was beautifully presented and was good value for the money. It is a B.Y.O and they charge $5 for corkage.

My favourite food is Japanese. Found this restaurant very disappointing. Venue is large and can cater for large groups. Menu is substantial. Presentation lacking and did not seem freshly cooked.

Considering the population of Tekapo, the place has as many Japanese as Japan (jj). That probably is the reason why the restaurant is good. It is not too expensive either.
