Super friendly staff, all of whom are Japanese so you get an authentic meal. I had the spicy ramen and it was splendid. Really, really good and just enough spice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The assorted tempura was delicious walked down with great sake. Take time to understand all the menu options before ordering so as to not miss some great possibilities.

Look this is wanaka not Japan. So to some reviewers have unrealistic expectations. It's small it's clean and what they produce is fresh and good. If you need a Japanese hit this is a must. Always good, always consistent could be in Nozawa Onsen!
