We have been here before so we booked for 12 knowing it can get quite busy. The staff are so friendly and there are so many options to choose from when deciding on what to order. We had the teriyaki salmon. The skin is so crunchy and it comes with rice and salad. You also get a miso soup for... More

It's certainly not a cheap option. Standard Japanese fare at above-average prices. That said, the food is good (especially for Townsville). You might want to book - the only reason we could get a table inside is because we were early (5.30pm) and promised to be out quickly. Sushi that would normally be $3.50-$4.50 at a sushi train were $6.00+... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Townsville, but often I can't get in unannounced because it's become so popular.

I've been here a few times and the sushi/sashimi plates have always been excellent but the beef Stirfry last time was a miss. Oh and they do tempura ice cream! Overall one of our fav places and will be returning again.

We have been to GYO many times and the food is always great. On our last visit we had to sit inside as there was no room outside. Very noisy. Outside is much better. Service was good and food arrived in a timely manner. The downside is the no bill splitting policy. They gave us the bill so we could... More

Since my last review I have been here twice, once with my friends and just recently on Saturday night with my husband. Food is amazing...so fresh and lots of options. We always have the Gyozo and the Sushi & Sashimi platter and if my husband is hungry always orders the Spider Roll which is also yummy. Highly recommend coming here... More

3 of us dined on a Saturday night, very busy. Portion size for deluxe sashimi was really disappointing on comparasion with price. The acoustics in the restaurant are very loud....blenders in the bar, plates banging...not a peaceful place thats for sure. Food was over salted to be honest and mushrooms on the beef dish we had were stone cold. Trying... More
