This place serves very average Japanese food. But then again, there are not really many options in Tekapo. Service is prompt even when it was full. Ambience is not awesome and the furniture is ageing. I was only here for a quick dinner, but would...More

Was disappointed with our meal tonight, very average & we were hungry. It didn’t taste bad, just nothing special that’s all

Booked as we heard it got busy, so we didn't have to queue after a long day! Bentos are nice and fresh. Friendly and generous service. Nice view overlooking Lake Tekapo and very reasonable price.

This place served great Japanese food. The sushi was great and we had the BBQ steak and teriyaki salmon for mains which were very tasty. The dessert plate was intriguing and attracted a lot of attention! It was all very delicious!
