We were very impressed with the food and service at Kinoko. The Staff were friendly and efficient and the food was lovely. Good range of dishes to try. Eggplant was delicious.

I am always impressed when visiting Kinoko, the food is fresh, high quality and there is always an interesting dish to try. Staff are friendly and very professional and always make me feel very comfortable. I love sampling different dishes on the sushi train and of course trying a main dish from the menu. Great Japanese food, made with love.

I love going to Kinoko and enjoy the dishes from the menu and the sushi train. It´s the best Japanese place in town, with lovely and friendly staff! My favorite dish is Warm Sushi Roll...you just have to try!

I was super impressed with Kinoko, the flavours were delicious, good sized portions and presentation was amazing! I would recommend the veggie curry and tuna salad (sushi train available too). I got 2 meals and spent $30 (which was worth it for the quality).

My partner and I stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner, were so hungry and were definitely not disappointed with our meals! We ordered from the menu instead of taking from the sushi train, we shared the tuna salad and vegetarian japanese curry and both were so delicious! Very fresh ingredients, perfectly seared tuna sashimi, great flavour combinations, yummy sauces... More

Being a regular visitor to Byron, i always stop off at Kinoko for a bite to eat. Clean, fresh sushi and inspiring main dishes make this place a stand out. I love the chicken gyoza and eggplant dengaku with the miso sauce...yum! I also can't leave without a few plates off the train - the fresh nigiri seafood sushi is... More

I have been twice. First time was great. It was lunch time and very busy and there was a high turn over of fresh food. The second time was just before dinner time. There were only a few customers and there was a massive stack up of the preprepared sushi plates ready for the train. I don't mind that it... More

So, arrived here yesterday and decided with my partner and a friend (who lives here) to grab something quick. What better than another generic 'sushi-train'? I love Japanese food, but this is not it! Undercooked sushi rice, which actually resembled risotto rice, so all the sushi was falling apart, no appealing at all, and to my shock I looked behind... More

Probably one of the worst sushitrain i ever been, small portions, very expensive and really boring food presentation and selections. After spending 45$ still starving i went to the pizza place and had one entire pizza. Never ever again in this place. Avoid if you can, or go if u have lots of money to trow in the rubbish

I was both surprised and disappointed of your recent experience at our restaurant. We pride ourselves on offering value for money with fresh and wide menu offerings. Your feedback is valuable but I am surprised that after spending $45 as a solo visitor, we failed to satisfy your appetite. In the 7 years the restaurant has been operating, we have... More

My partner and I love kinoko, we love going for dinner. The authentic food, past paced delicious vibes and friendly staff make it! After a day of lounging at the beach it's an easy option and fun. Peace guys!
