Vibe

Zen cool with polished concrete, lots of dramatic dark wood, and Japanese woodcuts. No windows mean you’re immersed entirely in the classy and elegant surroundings.


Service

Low-key and excellent with a wonderfully understated Japanese ambience.


Highlights

The tempura soft-shell crab, definitely the right choice as one of the two dishes I could pick to accompany my bento lunch box ($28). Other tasty options were crispy grilled salmon and super-fresh tuna sashimi.


Most Surprising Dish

A perfectly judged array of small bite-sized appetisers to start the meal, all included in Tatsumi’s $28 lunch deal. Look forward to gossamer-thin beef tataki and delicate sweet and sour fish.


Drinks List

Innovative cocktails based on monthly Asian horoscopes, a very good winelist, and a surprising range of beers including Sapporo on tap and Emerson’s Pilsner.


The Bottom Line

Relocated to Auckland after the Christchurch earthquakes, Tatsumi provides excellent Japanese flavours tinged with a few innovative European fine dining touches.


A Reason To Return

For the East meet West innovation of the a la carte dinner menu, including the tempura soft shell crab salad ($27), seasoned with Cajun spices and including a yuzu pepper salad, goat’s cheese and tobiko (fish roe).
