Auckland: Tatsumi

Tatsumi is a modern and chic Japanese restaurant found in the heart of Newmarket. I would have to say its one of the nicer Japanese restaurants in the Auckland precinct with a modern, upmarket interior. 

Ordering tapas style as per usual we were surprised to an amuse bouche before our meal was served; A small selection of Japanese bites that were all full of flavour. The sushi was rolled beautifully, maybe not as creatively displayed as other Japanese restaurants, but extremely fresh, which is what you are always looking for in sushi. I’m a sucker for soft shell crab, we agreed the tempura was perfectly balanced, with a light and crispy texture – also on the veges too. We love sashimi, but we love salmon more, I would recommend ordering it as its cut to perfection and again very fresh. At the end of the meal we were served a complimentary dessert – mango pudding. Not my cup of tea personally but im not a fan of Asian desserts to be fair.

Overall the service was friendly and they go out of their way with personal touches that are unexpected.
