This lovely restaurant is tucked behind all the other restaurants from the main highway. The food here though is delicious!
The staff are lovely and are very accommodating, we came near closing time but they still took our order for dinner.

Ordered the pork belly and a Bento box. The pork belly was cooked to perfection, with the sauce that accompanied it was harmonious to it.

The Bento box gave a fine selection, from salmon to chicken to egg rolls and sushi. The tempura that came with it had a wonderful dipping sauce. The curry powder was also a very nice touch.

Dessert was heavenly, with the chocolate pudding. The presentation of this was marvelous! Candy floss and home made ice creams! The amount of time and dedication the chefs put in really comes through!

A highly recommended place!!

Decided to come here after looking at all the restaurant menus in townand found this restaurant provided us with the best menu. Unlike other Japanese restaurants in New Zealand this is run by Japanese.

Food is excellent, service is also good, fast and friendly. They cater for tour groups as well as smaller groups like ourselves (my husband and I)

We ordered a bento box with blue cod tempura, and other items to share eg buckwheat soup, venison carpaccio, tekapo sushi roll and salmon marinated in sake and dessert (azuri bean and green tea cake).
Everything was superb! Moved the venison carpaccio and the
Buckwheat soup especially.

Definetly recommend this place to anyone going to lake tekapo

It is a bit pricey but is comparative with other restaurants in the area .

Will defiantly come back here again.

Fantastic food, fresh tender sashimi, very good sushi, crisp and light tempura, attentive service, BYO, nice views.
Pretty awful decor though, seems to be a Tekapo thing.
