Expect superior Japanese food in an elegant setting at Millbrook Resort’s fine dining restaurant.
Zen interiors are made up of blonde wood and large windows which allow sweeping views of Lake Hayes, Arrowtown and the Wakatipu Basin to take centre stage.
The open kitchen, overseen by Chef Yuki Ariya who has 26 years of culinary experience, is a masterclass in order and organisation. Attention to detail and a focus on quality ingredients are at the heart of everything they do, as proved by the red snapper sashimi. The fish is line caught and on your plate within 24 hours!
As well as sushi and sashimi, the menu includes small plates such as dumplings, teppanyaki which is prepared at your table and a selection of grilled meats and seafood. The presentation is sensational - dishes such as wagyu usuyaki, seared beef with wasabi, pomegranate and egg yolk, look every bit as magnificent as they taste.
A selection of fine wines and craft sakes round off what is already an exceptional dining experience.
