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!

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Tatsumi as the food was superb and the service gracious and attentive. A great addition to our memories of Queenstown when we were on holidays recently.

The food is the best Japanese you will get anywhere in New Zealand. Hands down. The price of both the food and NZ wine is just unbelievable, so resonable . And I understand why the owners left Auckland for a better life. They so pay it forward. I can not recommend this restaurant enough. I dream about the food and service when I am back in Auckland. Love, love, love.

Cocktails were just ok, food was first class, loved everything. Would have like more of a selection in the sushi roll section on the menu. We had the soft shell crab, some of the other combinations were a little strange. Overall excellent experience.

Amazing restaurant. Ticks all the boxes. Food was divine. Service was impeccable. Setting was beautiful and cozy. Could not recommend highly enough. Degustation was worth every penny with a nicely pair plum wine and/or sake. Will revisit on my next trip to this amazing city.
