    The seats comportment make us feel private, which is similar to some of Japanese izakaya restaurant. The staffs are polite and nice. Price are reasonable for the quality of food. Variety of alcohol, I am very satisfied.

    This is my second visit for this restaurant. I do like the box seats which we can feel private and more relax. The decorations and atmosphere is close to izakaya restaurant in Japan and also ipad ordering system is clever. We had hot pot which is included variety choices of salad, takoyaki, curry,etc. which is authentic and price is reasonable. Highly recommended.

About the restaurant

Taste Modern Japan @ Wai-Wai Dining.

The restaurant is a playground for the senses both via its traditional Japanese food and drink menu and in its seductive interior. It offers a balance between privacy and social intimacy most restaurants cannot achieve due to its booth style seating.

The tapas style menu has all that Japan has to offer through its unique combinations of flavours, ingredients and textures.

As one of the only restaurants in the area serving Japanese’s Kagoshima Wagyu Wai-Wai Dining is an eating experience on the Gold Coast not to be missed.

Wai-Wai Dining also offers all you can eat buffet choices with hot-pot from $35 catering for families, corporate events and everything in between. Reservation recommended.

Happy hour from 4pm everyday if you are looking for a cheap Japanese beer or Chu-hai
