My most fav restaurant on the Gold Coast

Hands down, the best Japanese food I have had. Fresh, amazing, authentic Japanese food. The whole experience makes you feel like you are in Japan. Great service, and unbelievable food. Great for families too. I cannot wait to go back. Have never had a bad experience. Don't forget the set menu as... read more

This place looks simple and not flashy from the front but oh my goodness the food is amazing. So authentic and tasty and fresh. Next time we are up we will definately be back. You could teach some of the restaurants in sydney a thing or two! :)

My wife and have been eating at the the sensational little ramen bar next door (Muso) once a month for over a year now, but this is the first occasion we have dined at Itoshin. Despite its relatively large size, it was virtually full on the Saturday night we visited. Given the restaurant's location and frontage, I suspect many of... More

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.

Very unpleasant night received by Itoshin. 3 waitress came to greet for a table of 2 and walk away without a sign. We thought maybe we didn't made a booking (that was Tuesday). 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

My wife and I have been going to Itoshin for years and not once in all that time have we had cause to complain about anything!!!, the consistency and excellence of their food is amazing, other restaurants in this town should take a leaf from their book. The longevity of their business is testimony to this fact. keep up the... More
