A really great Japanese experience. The staff are so friendly and the BBQ buffet is amazing! The bento boxes are delicious and everything is so well priced.

We came to this restaurant very often and the food and service is always excellent. I think we tried almost everything in the menu! My favourite is the pork belly entree and their bento.

JFX is in a great spot in Southport and there is parking under Southport Central Towers. The service is great, the food is all tasty and there is seating both inside and outside. The food is cooked fresh and comes out quickly and food is priced well. If your are in Southport give it a go!!
