Hikari Sushi Bar chef Min Yu presents sushi and sashimi for
sale in Dunedin yesterday.
Hikari Sushi owner Kwang Yong Song, of Queenstown, owns two
sushi outlets in Dunedin - in George St and Meridian mall -
and three sushi restaurants in Queenstown, in Beach St, Mall
St and O'Connell's Shopping Centre, and he said he had
recently signed contracts to open two Christchurch
restaurants - in the central city and Wigram.
The first shop in Queenstown opened in 2007 and the first
Dunedin shop in February last year.
The five restaurants employed about 30 staff, he said.
It was planned to open the Christchurch outlets in about June
next year, he said.
He was also planning to open a sushi shop in the Five Mile
retail centre development in Queenstown next year, he said.
