We had a great time at Tanoshi, the staff was lovely and really informative, the pancakes, the tataki, the sashimi, the beef tataki...everything was delicious and well presented. We'll go back, good thing we live in Queenstown!

Japanese tapas, - how can you go wrong! and this venue does it very well. All staff we meet were fantastic, professional but chatty, esp the new team member from NYC who just charmed us. Service prompt and food great. A real highlight of our trip to Queenstown

Great little hidden spot just off the mall. Had prawns, beans, pork and scallops. The food was all delicious. It's a pretty small restaurant. Would suggest getting there around 6pm as people were being turned away because they filled up so quickly. You can put your name down on a waiting list though, but they don't take bookings.
Plenty of places around to grab a drink while you wait for a table to be ready for you.
