Great Japanese cuisine with outstanding service, if not the best I have ever experienced, especially from the restaurant manager Hideyo Yonezawa. My favorite restaurant during our holiday in the Gold Coast. Would have gone back every night if it wasn't for my sister's kids.

It certainly won't be another 29 years before we enjoy a fabulous meal at Hatsuhana Japanese Restaurant again. We had twelve seated around the teppanyaki bar with a lovely chef who cooked an amazing meal in front of us. He was happy to do mine a little differently as I don't like the Japanese mayo. The staff were attentive and... More

The Teppanyaki tables seat 12 people in a horseshoe for a six course serve that is theatrically presented. A good night out.

Took our 13 year old daughter for a Teppanyaki dinner for her Birthday. The staff were amazing, chef was great and waitresses went over and above. Even came out and sang out daughter happy birthday with a free dessert when they found it was her birthday. Definitely recommend visiting!! Great food and great experience!!

We didn't book table on Saturday night. When we were there they booked out. But staff was very friendly and put us on waiting list. We ordered family meal for dinner. That was really beautiful. We will come back definitely. 我们订的是家庭套餐,味道很好吃,量也很大,做为晚餐这个价格真的很值得!三个大人和一个孩子居然没有吃完。工作人员非常友好,服务态度也很好。

We came here during our stay at the Sea world Nara resort and were not disappointed. We chose the family meal deal for $79 which caters for two adults and two children.
