Great Japanese food. Great atmosphere and nice service. Kingfish was gorgeous as suggested by the waitress. Great value for money , a must when in the Gold Coast

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

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
