A popular Japanese restaurant on the Gold Coast, blending traditional with a tapas-style delivery. Plenty of plant-based options for the non-meat eater if you make note when ordering so they can use a different broth, etc. Excellent Japanese whiskey selection.

A very different and special eating place for us when we visit the Gold Coast. We took a grandson who said it's his favourite restaurant! Great food!!!

The staff and food were awesome. The music was a little loud for conversation, at least for me with industrial deafness.
