On a recent visit to Townsville, I was advised by work colleagues to have dinner here as it was close to where we were staying. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and water was on the way along with some cocktails. For starters we ordered the Soft Shell Crab and the Yakitori (I hope I spelt this right) Chicken. The... More

Have been here a few times with my mates, and every time a it has been great. Restaurant looks a bit run down, but don't let that fool you. Food is amazing and service is very good. Only problem is the bill cannot be split so come prepared. Would recommend this place to anyone after a good Japanese feed.

My whole family love it here. Great service, fast meals. Family friendly. Plenty of seating & parking. Fresh sashimi, go the large one. Great value meal deals. Yummy soft shell crab sushi. Great cold Asahi Beer, a little dear tho, but goes oh so well with the meal & the heat of TSV.

This place is an absolute gem. Hands down the best Japanese I have had in a long time and EASILY the best customer service I have experienced in Townsville. Even down to menu choices, when I questioned some of the flavours in several dishes I had never tried, the waitress was more than happy to make suggestions as to which... More

We made a reservation for a Friday night and pleased we did. Gyo is obviously a favourite in Townsville and there was soon a queue. Friendly staff, smooth service of quality food. Started with soft shell crabs. Crisp and tasty. Followed with teriyaki chicken and seafood okonomiyaki. Chicken was very good. Okonomiyaki was gluggy - strange omelette held together by... More

Don't ever eat at GYO Japanese restaurant in Townsville... We were enjoying our dinner but our baby was a bit grizzly and wanting to get off my lap and walk around... The manager decided he might be offending other customers and asked us to take him outside or finish up and leave... He then followed us out to the street... More

The food and service are always good. My wife and I eat here regularly. Highly Recommended: Try the Okonomiyaki! It's a crazy Japanese pancake thing - traditional japanese street food - NOT to be MISSED Also amazing - the Karaage - japanese fried chicken and the Best Spider rolls I've ever eaten anywhere. Try it, you'll like it. The servers... More
