I always support this theory, restaurant in hidden place offers better quality of food than restaurant on Main Street. This one is another good example, in surfer paradise centre but not on Main Street.

Fast food muck wit a bit of soy & ginger. A 12 year old can do better than this. I was shocked at just how bad their food was. This place has been open for decades... HOW???? Even the waitress said she doesn't eat there......More

I thought the food was very average. The pork belly dish was stodgy and fairly tasteless. The pork and heart yakitori sticks were over cooked in my opinion. We won't go back

The Yakitori is amazing, service is great and the value is fantastic. Worth a visit or three every time I'm in Surfers 😋Also you have to try the plum wine 🥂

I felt like I was in Japan although I have never been. The owner (when not busy) Would play an instrument that was not a guitar and not quite a ukelele. It was nice atmosphere and the food was great!

Excellent boutique Japanese food. Friendly quick service just near the main drag of Surfers. Tasty and very good quality food. Their warm house Sake smooth and flavoursome.

Beef skewer was dry like a jerky and overcooked. The owner was not friendly towards other customers, there was no professional customer service either from staff or owner. If you want to solely fill your stomach with cheap food and dont care about how you...More
