“Tasty food and great service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I came here having read the tripadvisor review. I'm not an expert in Japanese food but I really enjoyed it here. Fast service, very relaxed, fresh good quality food. The black sesame icecream was brilliant.

“Easy to miss, but worth stopping”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

As a regular mid-winter visitor to the Gold Coast staying at Surfers Paradise, I must have walked past Bistro Lamp dozens of times without realising that this dark coloured hole in the wall 'Bistro' was in fact a top japanese restaurant. When I and a friend decided to investigate what was within we were much take by its traditional Japanese ambience and huge range of offerings. For out first engagement there we sellected a sampling of mixed dumplings, a traditional vegetable and noodles filled pancake topped with calimari and ended a green tea icecream and sesame icecream. That meal and a beer was within the $50 frang or two and we were full. The table of three next to us from Canada were beside themselve with delight with the 9 courses they had chosen and we had a chance to see and discuss their dishes with them. Our experience is consistent the earlier reviews on Trip Advisor about the merits of this place.

“One of my Favourites”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Love this place. Have been a few times now with my partner and we always leave so happy. Food is faultless, lots of tasty options. We always take our time and order a few plates. BYO is always good too. Make sure you try the Japanese beers and sake too. Service is so friendly and helpful. Such a cool little set up with great prices too
