Very friendly staff. We were served very quickly and the food was amazing. Very nice atmosphere. I had bento bowl C. The eel as well as everything else in it was perfect.

We spent a weekend in Wellington 2 weeks ago and were recommended this restaurant by the Hotel - Willis Wellington Hotel. We were not disappointed! Food is great and fresh. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. A must try on Cuba Street!

The fish was very fresh and tasty. Service was good. We really enjoyed the food, a cold beer and some sake. Glad we got in when we did, it was packed by the time we left. It's not cheap, my wife and I dropped $100 but it was a good meal and we enjoyed it.

We traveled Japan just before arriving in Wellington and the salmon sashimi gives it a run for its money. Great spot!

It is one of the tasty Japanese restuarants in Wellington. It has a wide range of good taste menus. Bento set is valued for a price. Chicken-spicy ramen is recommended!

Not pretentious so we felt comfortable and the food was pretty tasty. There was a great range of dishes that catered for the range of tastes in the family. Only... More

friendly staff, nice sake, good and big portion. The only downside is the sign is not so easy to see so it is easy to miss it.

I wanted to find another Japanese restaurant that had class and GOOD food (seeing as my previous go-to changed a little bit) and I am happy to report that I have. The food at Origami is delicious.

We went for a Japanese meal and weren't disappointed. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was good . It was clean and our entree was very nice with the main next . Chopsticks or utensils are offered plus you can order and take away which would be great and they are reasonable priced. I would go back for sure
