Magic meat shop Nikuya (meaning ‘meat shop’ in Japanese) is an exciting venue in the M&A building in Fortitude Valley. This premier Japanese restaurant features two dining spaces each with its own focus and dining experience. The ground level represents Izakaya Japanese dining, specialising in Tonkatsu, while Level One is the best place to enjoy Japanese BBQ grill. From the stunning contemporary décor to the extensive menu of exquisite authentic Japanese cuisine and East meets West drinks list, Nikuya is one of the Valley’s leading dining destinations. It's high ceilings, shiny black/blonde toned furniture, and magical giant lanterns swinging from the roof, everything about this place politely suggests ‘class’ (though the menu prices are surprisingly reasonable). This is a great place to come with friends and family - get amongst it. Best dish: Berkshire Pork.
