We have been here a few times and, although the service is a little slow (only because it is always chockers) the food is so yummy! Fish is always nice and fresh and the dumplings are really good. My favourite is the vegetable tempura. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Definitely going to make this one of my favourites places to... More

We have lived near this restaurant for a while now but only visited last week prompted by a trip to Japan. What have we been missing. Prompt attentive service. An excellent well priced menu - our bento boxes were superb. Generously spaced seating in a light airy atmosphere. A decent range of well priced sake and a good wine list.... More

We went to Japan Inn as a random choice of restaurants last weekend. Very nice ambiance, clean restaurant, and most importantly the food was delicious. The price is also quite cheap, bonus.

Last night I went to this little restaurant for dinner. The service was pretty good, the waitresses were lovely. We ordered mixed entrees which were all yummy. My main which was chicken with vegetables and stir fry noodles was very oily and I couldn't finish it. My friend and i had the green tea icecream for desert and it was... More

If you want excellent Japanese food in the suburbs, then this is the place. All food is delicious and for a Japanese restaurant, the servings are very generous. My favourite is the Kobe steak. The sushi is delicious and fresh too.

We visited some friends who live very close to Japan Inn. They regularly visit this restaurant and suggested we dine there. Overall it was very good, the service, the food, the ambience and at a pricing point where the food can be pretty “standard” (i.e. average), but this restaurant was definitely above average. Every dish we ordered had something special... More

Had a really nice meal here although the gyoza were a bit underdone & chewy Great friendly team BYO & licensed Easy to park Small menu but enough choice to suit most diners Definitely worth trying if you like Japanese & are near Beaumaris

Hidden away in a side street, with a small sign, and not the most imposing façade, Japan Inn is a gem. The food is good, and tasty, the service we found to be excellent, and its good value. Some down points are that its not the biggest place, so booking is recommended, and it can be quite noisy due to... More

We have previously eaten at this excellent restaurant and found the food always delicious, and reasonably priced. This time we booked, and after arriving it was evident that the table was not vacant for some period of time. The staff made a table in a small alcove upstairs available for us to wait, and brought us complimentary drinks and entrees... More
