Had dinner here and on arrival was a little skeptical on what the food would be like as the restaurant is not that impressive to look at. Wasn't i happily surprised when the food started arriving at our table. We had some gyozas which were delicious followed by some chicken karage which was lovely and crispy on the outside and melt in your mouth tender on the inside. Very good value and great food.

I eat regularly( 1 to 3 times a week) at Bishamon and am a sucker for routine been a sashimi addict. Of all the Japanese places I've tried in Brisbane, Bishamon to date offers the most plump, fresh and generous sashimi servings. I enjoy this with warm house sake. A token gesture of a morsel of something upon arrival is sweet. Yes can be a bit noisy, and try to avoid the door...but I'm a regular so in and out for me. Parking is easy and it is well priced..eg the sashimi which i would consider a meal is only $22. Female guests are treated to the sweetest little mouse carved from radish on their sashimi plate. It would be great to see them do something with the outdoor area! Always populated by visiting Japanese business people here and a haunt for medicos. Service isn't too bad but I get great service because as a regular they get to know your likes. Suitable for solo, couples and groups, often see what looks like business groups there.

We have dined at Bishamon since it opened in late 2004, visiting several times a week regularly. The staff are friendly and reliable, and the food quality and variety is superb. If you are looking for an authentic yet relaxed Japanese dinner this is the place. You can't go past the tepinyaki bar or the all you can eat sukiyaki. Q

Had a family dinner here and the food was excellent. Really authentic and great service. Like that the restaurant is not pretentious and the food is the star! Only minor problem is that when the place is full, the noise level is really high - quite hard to talk without shouting ... until the food arrives, then there is silence! Would love to return one day.
