If you're craving for Japanese food while having a holiday in Queenstown, NZ, then this is such a place to go. Within the city centre. Food is okay - tasty and adequate servings. However, as is for Japanese food - can be pricey, too! Enjoyed...More

Good lunch at Hikari with fresh fish and eel. Many options but we tried the lunch specials and the miso soup was good to keep us warm. Recommended!

This place is very good! Came back twice. Both times, the food hit the spot. Had the udon noodles. It could use a little bit of spice. The tempura was lightly battered. The lunch portion is quite large and very filling. The staff is friendly...More
