For modern Japanese fusion food in an intimate setting look no further than Tatsumi.
Located in the heart of Queenstown, it is decorated in contemporary style, with dark wooden surfaces and minimalist nods to Japanese culture such as silk lampshades and traditional art.
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 or go a la carte. Favourites include a variety of fresh sashimi, small plates such as squid ink tempura calamari, deep-fried tofu, and beautifully marbled wagyu beef steak.
The drinks list is equally innovative, with sophisticated cocktails inspired by the signs of the Japanese zodiac. There is also an excellent selection of sake and Japanese whisky, as well as a wine cellar well-stocked with Kiwi labels.
