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!

“Fantabulous” collaborating Japanese food and NZ products. Best Restaurant in Queenstwon, even best in NZ. Menu, food presentation, plates, glass...all of service and equipment have a strong sense of purpose.

Exceptional food for a place surrounded by highly rated restaurants. Very unassuming place though truly made up by quality of food preparation and presentation as well as genuine service. Must try

The best Japanese we have eaten in our life. We were a group of 4 and could not stop raving about the dinner last night at Tatsumi till now. Surely visiting again soon. The fresh produce and outstanding presentation will live with us forever. The hosts were humble and perfectionists. Well done and thank you guys!!

Tatsumi is a a destination dining experience. This superb authentic modern Japanese restaurant has been a firm favourite of ours for nearly 10 years - initially when they came to Auckland, and more recently after they relocated to Queenstown. the menu is superb and the food exceptional : all overseen by Yoko’s wonderful front-of-house attention to the overall dining experience and service. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Amazing service and even better food, each dish was outstanding. I have been to the Auckland Tatsumi when it was open and the Queenstown iteration does not disappoint.
