First of all we were told how busy they were and to order everything straight away. The restaurant was not full but the sushi bar was in front of the kitchen area. The actual fun sushi bar was on the other side of the room. A group of people got to sit there and watch an awesome display. The restaurant... More

went with y partner and had the freshest sushmi at the bar. The staff were very attentive and nothing was a problem. The daycore needs to be done up and is very dated.

'Dinner and Show' at the Teppanyaki table is one of the best places to bring our visitors to Nelson and this visit was no exception. The food is always tasty, healthy and filling and the chefs are entertaining.

We loved our chef Tae Woo. Not only was he an amazing chef but also a great entertainer. He was happy to share his knowledge with his collection of specialty knives and how best to sharpen them. We really appreciated the extra time he took to explain things to us. Beautiful food, perfectly cooked in front of us. We'll be... More

we do love Japanese food and this was the reason to visit Nelson and it was sooooo worth it! Fantastic food and service, probably ordered too much, next time would pass on the Karaage as too fried, but otherwise, it was really really good. Wish that it was an adults only restaurant but it is a family hotel.

My husband and I took my Mum here on the last night of our family Christmas visit to Nelson. I'd been before a couple of years ago and was impressed then with the food quality, service and Teppanyaki dining experience. Often, a second visit doesn't live up to the first but on this occasion- it was even better! The Teppanyaki... More

Decor a little too bright and it was lacking in atmosphere but the food was great and service excellent. The bento was good value and really filling. Superb beef, plenty of sushi and delicious dessert.

Food was beautiful and the service excellent. When I rang to book I was warned there was a large booking just prior to the time I wanted to book so there may be a delay, which I appreciated.
