This has to be the best dining experience I have had in Auckland recently. Wonderful food and service. We chose a number of smaller dishes for lunch and all were delicious. And all for a very reasonable price.

This restaurant was very easygoing and unhurried. The service was excellent as was the food. We had a number of smaller dishes which were all different and very tasty.

Tatsumi is a lovely modern Japanese dining experience located in the heart of Newmarket. It's surrounded by other Japanese restaurants and Italian restaurants. The restaurant had some modern decor with Japanese framed artworks and so forth. The menu itself can either go as a tapa type or degustation/banquet type meal. My friend and I chose the tapa side and we... More

We live in Newmarket and this was our first visit- will definitely not be our last! Could not fault this meal, the service and the atmosphere, not to mention a realistic cost. Started with the miso soup, make sure you get this, the best miso I have tried. For entrees we had the tofu in a broth and the deep... More

Quick service, very good service and very affordable. We had lunch there nearly every day. Lovely square in front where in good weather people can sit on the grass and enjoy the location.

Great atmosphere and it was a great restaurant but sadly the lack of service and mediocre food will not entice us to return

Tatsumi delivers fantastic and authentic Japanese food, with all the wait staff taking great pride in that authenticity and delivery. It's a regular lunchtime Resturant for me with a variety of options on the Casual Lunch for around $20. If you have time or need to have a longer business lunch open the menu and treat your guests for around... More

I'm a huge fan of authentic Japanese cuisine and have struggled to find a restaurant I really like, until my partner and I tried Tatsumi. The service and food is outstanding, the decor tasteful and the menu has us coming back to try more dishes. The Sunday lunch menu offers best value for money in our opinion. Bookings recommended.
