Tatsushi is a hidden gem for those in the know - it's tucked away down Edward Street, near popular craft beer bar Little Beer Quarter

Rita chef and co-owner Matt Hawkes names Tatsushi as one of his favourite places to eat on his nights off, "Tatsushi is my favourite. It’s unpretentious, humble, and delicious... I eat there whenever I can."

Featuring a menu they describe as 'true and authentic Japanese', Tatsushi serves expertly-made dishes using traditional Japanese methods with local Wellington and New Zealand produce. Menu highlights include super fresh sashimi and house-made tofu, so soft and meltingly tender that it will change your perception of what tofu can be.
