Great lunch

The bento box has much delightfulness! Definitely worth going in and trying for yourself. The restaraunt can be a little busy at lunch sometimes though.

We had our favourite meal - mori mori box with Chicken Karage, to our dismay, the rice was horrible and tastless. The salad was appalling, lettuce were not at all freash as it used... More

As said in title, good food, good service and well priced. Casual dining among friends for quick and easy meals. Only down fall, not much variety or options to choose from !!

Crowded on a Monday night which surprised as had found South port reasonably quiet. Lovely waitress found us seats at counter in front of kitchen. Fun,happy service. Enjoyed Bento box with spicy pork karrage washed down with organic ginger beer. Tables had Yakitori grills which would have been great.. Booking would be advisable. Can see why they are busy. Well...

Their kimchee with pork hotpot dish never disappoints! Delicious, large portion, and only $10. You never have to wait long and the staff is very friendly. It's quite a small restaurant and it does get busy so if you want to sit inside make sure you call ahead to book. It's situated between the Southport Central buildings and as a... More

This is one of the best places you can go in Gold coast to taste authentic Japanese food, experience Japanese hospitality for a relatively low price. I have been to this place many times and will continue to go many more times, simply because of the taste of their food and the great hospitality. One advice for new customers,. make... More

We were there around 715pm, a little late and there were already a lot of people eating there. It doesn't take us too long to get a seat, but the staff were so busy that they do not have time to serve us. We waited for a while before we get to order our food. The place is famous for... More

After experiencing traditional Yakiniku (Japanese bbq) in Japan in January, I was desperately hoping to find one local. JFX is a hidden gem, a little difficult to find/carpark on a Saturday night but great value and a must do! The food was exactly like Japan. The service the same. Can't wait to go back to Japan and have Yakiniku again,... More
