For all the world we could have been sitting in an izakaya in Osaka. Fantastic vibe and service. Ginger pork udon was outstanding, as was okonomiyaki, sashimi, gyoza. Planning a visit back before we leave to try more.

Absolutely delicious ramen. We went back the following day to get more. If you are looking for Ramen, I'd suggest their Iko location since they have more choices and toppings.

I fell in love with Ramen while living in Vancouver. I've lived in Wellington for the past 2 years and there is no good ramen here, at all. I thought I was going to have to wait until visiting Vancouver again (or better yet Japan) to have a decent bowl of Ramen. To my extreme delight, I didn't have to go quite that far. I'd consider a trip back to Queenstown just for another bowl of their delicious soup.

The staff were excellent and you can clearly see that they have such a tight night family team. The food was wonderful and we would definitely eat there again!

We had a wonderful at Tanoshi Teppan last night. The service was very efficient and friendly and the food amazing. The seared salmon and steak was so tasty and the grilled scallops the best we have ever tasted. All in all an experience we hope to repeat again when we get back to Queenstown. A very special treat for us.

We found Tanoshi by chance on a rainy evening, had a very good light meal and returned the next night for an equally good dinner. Definitely recommend trying the okonomiyaki (having lived in Japan it's one of our favourites), and the dishes were great for sharing. They were quite busy but we were happy to sit in the little single bench facing out the window, not a great view but we didn't mind because the food and staff were all excellent. Good sake too.
