Love this restaurant In the heart of Surfers Paradise. Dai makes the most delicious, fresh sushi to order. Staff are very attentive. Quaint decor with paper lanterns and blossom prints on the windows. Soft shell crab is delicious and sashimi is always fresh. Green tea ice cream and red beans take you straight back to Kyoto. We are regulars here... More

When we went this restaurant, there were a couple of customers enjoyed Sushi, Tempura or others while relaxing. We ordered Edamame for the first order with beer but soon after we made an additional order because some further customers came to the restaurant. What we enjoyed are some Sushi rolls, Fresh sashimi, Grilled fish, and special bento Box (Tempura also).... More

...and we weren't disappointed! If you're looking for "American Japanese" cuisine, keep looking. This restaurant offers far more traditional dishes. I had a "salmon boat" with raw salmon, avocado, and other vegetables served cold on a bed of rice, which was delicious, and my husband enjoyed a sort of noodle omelet. They do offer some items that are more common... More

We visited Yuuga with a large pre-booked group, and it was a pleasant surprise. The staff were friendly and attentive, bringing the food and drinks quickly and efficiently. The sushi was very fresh and teriyaki chicken delightful. We also had a platter of mixed food, most of which was delicious. Their wine was quite expensive - $10 for a GLASS... More

We waited for 1.5 hours for our food. We reminded them 40minutes after ordering but they were prioritising other customers who arrived 20 minutes later than us. The customer service is the worse I have experience during my stay in Gold Coast. Please avoid this Japanese restaurant at all cost. There are others nearby providing excellent service and authentic Japanese... More

Tucked away on Cavill Ave not far from the Hard Rock Cafe is this fine Japanese restauirant. The service and food are excellent and the range of dishes is very good and their sashimi excellent. They also daily lunch specials (bento box style etc). Its a good place for couples and also group of friends.

A group of friends and I came here for lunch recently and the chef greeted us with a big smile and a Hello as we walked in the door. I was expecting a small restaurant going by the frontage but it was surprisingly spacious inside. Our menu had so many wonderful looking pictures that it was difficult to know what... More

We found it difficult to have a high quality meal in Surfers but the food here was absolutely amazing. You must try the kingfish with soy jelly - sublime.

Its nondescript location - it's stuck at the end of a nondescript shopping arcade - belies the quality of the dining experience this place offers. Heavenly sushi and sashimi are yours for the taking, but for my money the suki yaki is Yuuga's go-to dish. The service is pleasant. With its unassuming air you get the distinct feeling that this...
