Dinner with family after movie. Braised beef cheeks, pumpkin mashed, & gnocchi was so delicious! Been here many times, the lunch special was also very impressive!

I loved the food here. Very friendly staff. Awesome sushi. Not very expensive. Would love to come back here again.

I love a good degustation - especially at lunchtime - but it is often hard to find restaurants that provide them at this time. Searching for one I came across Tatsumi. We ate inside and it was all heavy woody with a touch of industrial and really cosy. The food courses were elegant, delicious and inventive. Japanese cuisine has the... More

A great local find indeed! Superb food and very reasonable prices for the quality. While the service was a little slow at first, I think it was because we were sitting outside and they could have forgotten we were out there. However, the waiting staff were very attentive once we'd placed our order and very sweet! The atmosphere is probably... More

I took advantage of the lunch special and had an interesting and varied meal for $28. Outdoor seating was very enjoyable, and the service was excellent. From the appetizers to the dessert, everything was wonderful, and the presentation was memorable.

Tucked in amongst a street full of restaurants, it has a softer more subtle street frontage beautifully landscaped with potplants to give an intimate feel. The menu has a good selection of seafood and vegetarian as well as meat options. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We ordered tapas and entees so we could try a selection of... More

Deluxe Lunch with 3 dishes from Tapas Menu. 7 guests none were disappointed with $28 per head lunch. Miso was delicate and clean, not too salty. Assorted platter was tasty and created lots of conversation within the group. I loved the fact that Wasabi was fresh alongside my choice of Tuna & Salmon Sashimi. It was delicious. With so many...

We regard Tatsumi as one of our "locals", eating there once every month or so. While not as glamorous (or pricey) as some of the top-end Auckland restaurants, it is right up there in terms of quality, consistency, good service and value for money. Firm favourites on the menu are the Tataki beef and gnocchi starters, and the venison, beef... More

This was our final dinner to conclude the wonderful NZ trip. The restaurant ambiance is great, and very nice decor. Service was very attentive. However, the food was mediocre. I am not sure that is because we have such great restaurant scene in Chicago, but the roll we ordered was O.K. Chicken bites which are chicken wings were good, but... More

This is the second time I have been here for lunch in the last year and it is wonderful to return and find everything is as good as before. The food is stunning and the service is excellent.
