Firstly you notice the decor, very cool and trendy. Then you get the menu, incredible choice and a great range of tasty options with vegan and gluten free catered for. The staff are incredibly attentive and brilliant at what they do. And the food, it's tasty, it's fresh, it's everything you want for a casual Japanese meal. The two if... More

We eat a great deal of japanese here and in japan. This place is outstanding and very well priced. I can't praise it enough. We had another meal in a high priced restaurant but to be honest, we enjoyed the food here even more! Run here don't walk!

After days of steaks and pastas we wanted some asian food and came across this near our hotel with a sign outside saying everything is under $12. Came in right after they opened so I was surprised food didn't come out till 25' later... We had the gyoza japs pancake. Pancake/gyoza pastry was nice but the black sauce was a... More

Bistro Lamp has been a favourite of ours for a long time but something was not right this week. The food was disappointing, not at all the usual standard. Oily dishes and lukewarm soup. We took our own alcohol but glasses are only supplied for wine not ciders or beer - a bit hard to drink out of a bottle... More

With all the glitz and glamour that is the Gold Coast small funky restaurants are hard to find.. This is like something found in places like Melbourne and Brisbane so We were stoked to find this little gem. The food is fantastic, staff are friendly and happy and the atmosphere is awesome. Every visit to the Gold Coast has a... More

We were pointed to this little gem by a local. The food was wonderful, the best Japanese we have had for a long time, and we eat Japanese regularly. A very eclectic menu. The Miso Eggplant was delicious. The service was friendly and helpful. Will certainly return to try some of the other unique items on the menu.

Had dinner here tonight for my birthday. We sampled several dishes paired with Orion beer and everything was awesome! The place was full (of Japanese diners, which is always a good sign), the serving sizes were generous, the pricing was very reasonable, the service was great, friendly and fast, and the food was delicious! Husband declares it the best Japanese... More

Been going here for years but recently moved to surfers and this is now our little local. Great, tasty food and at a great price. Yasu the manager is fun and friendly... We like to sit at the bar to get a traditional Japanese feel and you are amongst the midst of it all. Love the sake ...oishi

We love this restaurant. In our opinion the best in Surfers. The restaurant is not easy to find, but it is really cozy. Specially nice to sit outside. It is very busy and small, so you may have to wait to get a table. We try many different dishes and we were not dissapointed with any of them. Really good... More
