“Kind and Attentive Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

Beautiful view of the lake and very good food. We had some sushi (salmon) and tempura (which was my favorite). It was a rainy day and it was a comfortable place to be with a nice cup of hot green tea.

Great variety and excellent mix of tasty dishes to share. Gives good chance to try family Asian food favourites and new flavours. Friendly helpful service.

“Authentic Japanese we had to visit twice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

It's impossible to get a table here so we ordered takeaway on 2 occasions. The Tekapo rolls are amazingly good. We tried the salmon don and the teriyaki salmon don. Both were good but I prefer the former better!

Would highly recommend this place if you happen to visit the region!

“Great food! Great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

In March during our trip to Lake Tekapo we tried to get to Kohan for dinner without reservation, the place was fully booked until 8 pm. We could order takeaway, but some of the dishes that we were interested to try were not on the menu.
Couple days later we came for lunch, place was very busy. And we can see why: Food was delicious! And service was great!

It is very casual and busy place. We started with Japanese beer, which was excellent. We had Udon Noodle soup with mixed tempura, venison tataki, tempura shrimp sushi, and salmon sashimi. Everything was great. Love it! Hot tea was very good as well. Service was attentive and prompt. Great place! We can see why it is so popular and #1 on TA. We would definitely recommend this place! And advise to get reservations for lunch or dinner. We would come again.
