My wife & I were introduced to Itoshin by friends approx three years back & have been regular customers ever since. We always start our meal with edamame (warmed & salted soy beans), followed by sushimi & then move to duck, beef or seafood as mains, all sensational. The vegetables are also first class. I would suggest that this is... More

Everything we order was so fresh and delicious! Wonderful staff and beautiful setting!! It was quite busy but that didn't stress the staff or the food service time.

Finally the boss came to greet us again and lead us towards the end to the restaurant, so half way he turned himself "into" the kitchen without... More

Itoshin is the place to be if you are after best Japanese cuisine on Gold Coast. This place is owned by lovely family and being one of the first Japanese restaurant in town and still at its best. I would highly recommend the "Dinner set" where you can choose an entree, main, and desert from the menu. Compliment salad has... More
