I don't know what the go is with all the good reviews because its not the experience i had. Ordered Salmon teriyaki with steamed veges, the Salmon was overcooked and rock hard and the side of veges were mushy and overcooked too!! For a $30 uneatable meal i was appalled. I recommend Tokyo Kitchen at the Q centre Mermaid Waters... More

my daughter came up to visit and she loves Japanese food so we went to Itoshin on the gold coast highway, the place was very busy early so we ended up sitting at the bar and had a great view of the two chefs doing their thing to create the food always good best to reserve

Always amazing, very hard to find a bad dish here. The food is always fresh and the service is good too. As authentic as you can get in terms of Japanese cuisine

Traditional Japanese Sushi bar, they are very good at the classics. Standouts were the sushi/ sashimi platter and the fillet of beef. Could not fault this place and will definitely be back!

We are regulars here at Itoshin, and there is a reason we always come back. It's not a flashy restaurant, it's a family owned, lovely restaurant with super fresh and delicious food. We love supporting these guys! A must try!

The itoshin restaurant, located in a streetside shopping center, is actually a bit difficult to find, considering that there is a Japanese noodle house next door, and that's the door that more first-time guests usually see. The restaurant entrance is concealed behind a draped cloth. Once inside, the combination sushi-bar and dining-table atmosphere is comfortable, with many traditional Japanese touches.... More

Good Japanese! quite a hidden place. Small entrance to reveal a rather large dining area with sushi bar.

I wasn't disappointed when I visited this place with my boyfriend. He had been there before and recommended it. As a vegie, I had the beans,tempora veggies and tofu which was very tasty. Next time we will ask for the food to be served together, as the sashimi arrived before my food.the flavours were lovely

Always high quality, fresh, and awesome service. Sometimes the sushi bar is a little backed up bc they get so busy, but that's not bad... just relax, listen to the jazz, and watch the sashimi flow. Good things come to those who wait. Fantastic sushi boats, and everything else is amazing and top value. Itoshin updates their facebook with the... More
