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!

Would be great if you can do shabu shabu with your Japanese beef as an ala carte dish on its own without it just being part of degustation menu

Very friendly and attentive service by the staff. Had fresh oysters, small mixed sashimi platter, salmon avocado roll, al a carte salmon sashimi and fresh fish carpaccio. Produce was fresh and well presented. A little on the pricey side but would recommend if looking for nice place for quality Japanese dining.

The food was amazing but it would be great if they provide enough time to savour and finish each dish on the Group Menu.

Visiting from Chicago and have traveled to Japan many times. Suffice it to say that this was not only some of the best Japanese food we've ever eaten, but after having dinner we rebooked for dinner the next night. The freshest, most beautifully prepared and presented food from start to finish, along with outstanding sake and other libations. What a gem!

Tatsumi is one of Queenstown's hidden treasures with a great ambience and delicious meticulously presented dishes. You must have the prawn tempura! The attentive staff will ensure you feel welcome and obviously take pride in their work. Highly recommended and will be back.
