Reasonably Priced

If you are after a quick Japanese meal at a reasonable price, JFX will meet your needs. Friendly, efficient service. Miso soup- bottomless bowl, good for top- ups!

My boyfriend and I came here specifically for their BBQ buffet. There are 2 options, the first one was about 30 dollars, the second one was 44.9. We both took the 44.9 buffet, it was very worth the price with the amount of food we ordered. we had choices from fresh salmon, fried seafood, beef, chicken, pork and so many... More

ランチタイムに利用。 私は$25の焼肉セットにしました。 3種の"和牛" (もちろんオージービーフですが)を含む4種のお肉が選べたので、私はもちろん"和牛"3種と牛タンを選択。 他にサラダとご飯が付きます。お味噌汁は入店者はセルフサービスで飲み放題でした。 さすがオーストラリア、ボリューム満点で、食べ切れず、同伴者にお肉はおすそ分けしました。 味はさすがに日本の高級焼き肉店には及びませんが、オーストラリア和牛としては十分及第点でした。 次回は夜の食べ放題にトライしてみたいと思います。 I had $25 lunch BBQ set which included 4 kinds of meats, salad and rice. Self all you can eat miso soup. I chose 3 kinds "Wagyu" meats and ox tongue. Portion was big enough, taste great, too. I'd like to try dinner buffet next time.

We went to JFX on the recommendation of a work colleague when our "usual" Japanese place was closed for the holidays. We were pleasantly surprised with JFX, but do recommend a booking on Friday and Saturday nights - we were lucky enough to get a table as walk ins even though it was quite busy. There was a good selection... More

The food is really good, clean and a large selection from the menu means that you can get what you're after and also satisfy other family members (kids included). The service was attentive, the prices were very reasonable. Good find on our trip through Gold Coast

Have been to JFX many times, the first time I was taken there as a end of course celebration when I was learning Japanese, by the Japanese teacher. It was a great experience. The BBQ buffet option (only ever had the $29 option) is fabulous if you are in a group, it is a great atmosphere cooking the bbq food... More

Been here a few times and always walk out satisfied. $44 for all you can eat is a great deal for dinner. Its busy, a little noisy but it is Japanese after all. They do what they do well.

Eat here often, I would recommend if you like BBQ and energetic environments. The old burners have been switched with the new electric stoves so not as nice as it used to be, although less smokey too. All in all it's a nice place to get together with a bunch of friends.

Have dined here several times and always feel happy to return. Inside and outside dining, Japanese cuisine, reasonably priced. Heating outside is available if weather cold. As barbecue is cooked food at tables it can be smoky inside. Best to book as is popular and at times we have been turned away. Food plates are a complete meal and reasonably... More
