Best Japanese in Surfers

This place never fails to deliver fresh, tasty Japanese. We have lunch here often and are never disappointed. A great range of food to try and service is always spot on.

well, the soft shell crabs are amazing, is hard to crumb with perfect amount, but they did. for the other sashimi and shushi set, i think there are better out there with a cheaper price.

Extensive menu with variety. Can't account for authenticity but the food was very tasty. Good quality ingredients and reasonable pricing. My husband reports he had some of the best sashimi he had ever tadted. Staff were lovely and food was prompt. If I lived close by I might end up here most nights just to try everything on the menu!

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
