About Tatsumi Modern Japanese Dining

For modern Japanese fusion food in an intimate setting look no further than Tatsumi.
Having spent more than 20 years crafting his skill, chef owner Koichi has developed a modern Japanese fusion menu that draws inspiration from European cooking techniques. Expect classic sushi presented in imaginative ways and French desserts that use Asian ingredients, such as green tea and yuzu juice.

Get the full experience with the degustation menu for dinner or go a la carte at lunch time. Favourites include fresh sashimi, small plates such as calamari tempura and deep-fried tofu, and beautifully marbled wagyu beef steak. There is also a hot pot menu.

The drinks list is equally innovative, with sophisticated cocktails inspired by the signs of the zodiac. There is also an excellent selection of sake and Japanese whisky, as well as a wine cellar well-stocked with Kiwi labels.

You are guaranteed a culinary education as well as a top meal when you eat at Tatsumi. Book your table now and let the journey begin!

Delicious food and really nice atmosphere. Smallish dining area that feels intimate with comfortable seating. The service was great, the meal came out staggered so you didn't feel rushed to finish and the dishes that came out together were paired to be eaten together. Friendly staff.

We had been regular customers at the Auckland restaurant and were sad to see them leave. We recently visited the new restaurant in Queenstown and, of course, the food was just as excellent as we remembered. Our favourite are the tempura oysters - we have them every time. We also look forward to the salmon and the green tea fondant cake. We've eaten them more times than we can count. We love seeing Yoko at the front of the restaurant and it was wonderful to see her again after so many years. We recommend Tatsumi to everyone we meet and can't wait to come back!

I have dined in with Tatsumi in Chch before earthquake, Auckland after they moved and now in Queenstown. I have to say, the atmosphere and service has improved significantly, however the food was a little disappointing. I did not see how the sushi rolls being $22 was worth it for how little it was and the taste was quite average.

Thank you for a lovely dinner. My partner and I had a delightful evening on our last night in Queenstown. We ordered the set menu and particularly enjoyed the double cooked pork ribs which were so flavourful and tender. The oven baked oysters were also another highlight for us. We will definitely be back when we’re in town again!
