Have dined here on a number of occasions, the quality of the food is consistently good and the prices reasonable. The service has always been friendly, if at times a little difficult to understand but that's no big deal, just adds to the fun. Best pork gyozas I've ever had, and the house saki is pretty good too

We love our Japanese food and loved this place. It was a bit of a late dinner. We had Japanese style pickles, mushroom gyoza, seaweed salad, and umeshu - plum wine and soda. Oyster shooter was yum. Would come back for sure!

Whenever we holiday on Gold Coast we aways visit Bistro lamp. Food is just excellent. Staff are always friendly. Overall the restaurant is not that big and it can get hot at times inside, however there is a limited amount of outdoor seating that might be cooler.

So.... Decided to write this while actually at the restaurant as we have been here 2 hours and still not had all the food we ordered. That said, what we have recieved had been truly delicious. I just do t think that as a general policy having waiters that are clearly uninterested in customers, and can't remember very basic orders,... More

We visited this lovely Japanese restaurant twice during our recent trip to Surfers Paradise. Although the meals took a while to come out, and not all came out together, we were happy to overlook this due to the quality of the food which was outstanding, especially for the price, with mains around $12.00. A pity we did not discover this... More

Let me start by saying the food was exceptional. There were six of us at the table and everything we ordered was tasty and reasonably priced, no complaints here. However the meal was let down by the atmosphere of the restaurant due to the lack of air con. The restaurant was so stuffy and uncomfortable, I had to walk out... More

Had a dinner there recently. Food was good and tasty and more importantly they are reasonably priced. However, service was a bit slow as it has a small crew with one chef in kitchen (when we were there) and three waiters.

The food is absolutely sensational at a reasonable price, but the service is dreadful! Only 1 waiter! I get this is an Asian restaurant, but all of their English is incredibly poor and they can't understand a word you're saying. The first time I came here with my partner, we waited 30 mins for our drinks! (2 gin & tonics)... More
