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

If you want an authentic Japanese culinary experience this is the place to go, not flashy but just great food and great friendly people. My wife and I and our children and now our grandchildren all enjoy Itoshin. We have been to Japanese restaurants in other parts of the world and this is the one that we keep coming back... More

A group of us went here on December 30th. Our booking was for 8pm. We arrived about ten mins late but everything was ok. Some of our groups were stuck in traffic and so didn't arrive until 8.30pm so we ordered our food straight away. The order was for tempura prawns for all of us (10 people). At 9.30pm I... More

Second visit was just as enjoyable as the first which was over twelve months ago. Hot pot shared between two was delicious. Lots of Japanese staff and diners. Authentic Japanese food. Highly recommended.

Having lived on the Gold Coast for almost twenty years I can't believe I had never heard of this place (it has been around for 25 years!). It seemed like many other people had and the place was packed! Luckily we had made a reservation. The menu is fairly extensive and offers a la carte options as well as shabu-shabu,... More

Discovered Itoshin via Tripadvisor and decided to try it out. A great discovery, although somewhat hidden from the street. Good service, good food and a nice environment. The sashimi platter is excellent and the hot meals are equally good. Nice menu options and also BYO.

Beautiful Japanese food. We ordered the dinner set and started with sashimi. It was amazing and fresh with good selection of different kinds of fish. For main we had teriyaki steak and yakitori and both dishes were delicious. The steak melts in your mouth :) For dessert we tried the tempura ice cream and it was a great finish for... More
