Hikari Sushi & Japanese Cuisine is a slice of Japan in the centre of Christchurch. Located in the corner of Durham and Gloucester Street, the restaurant space offers great views of the Avon River and Christchurch Cathedral, along with an atmosphere like no other. The excellent customer service by friendly and energetic staff will liven up any dreary office day.

This is a restaurant that prides itself on quality and strives to serve the best sushi in New Zealand. Only the best ingredients will do and everything is made in house. The sushi cabinet is filled with fresh and interesting options, and with 25 varieties on offer at any time customers are a bit spoilt for choice really.

If sushi is not your thing, fear not, as Hikari’s menu offers plenty of meal options. Try a Japanese curry or a Donpuri (rice bowl dish), or go for the Bento box and get to sample a number of goodies.

In the evenings Hikari turns into an all-you-can-eat Japanese Tapas restaurant. Start the evening with a Shashimi boat, follow up with hot food by order and help yourself to cold food from the cabinet. Finish off with an ice cream dessert and be sure to leave satisfied.
