    We did the Omakase menu for dinner - perfect amount of food and it was all delish. Couldn’t fault any of it

    One of the best Japanese restaurants I’ve been to. The sashimi tacos were a standout but all of the food was super tasty. Great service & selection of drinks topped off a great night out

    We have been to this Japanese restaurant many times and the food is delicious with excellent service. The food is exciting Japanese and is always beautifully presented and tastes awesome. Well worth the visit for Japanese food and with a great selection of drinks available.

    Food was great and very well priced! Restaurant was very busy and food came out a bit slow but we still had a great time regardless.

    The food had a few nice dishes but for the price it was OK. The service overall was also OK.. they forgot an item from the degustation menu - we ordered a few extra plates- and also our drinks(; one of the plates took a long time to come out despite asking the staff on 3 seperate occasions and each time to be told it’s almost done (took a further 25 min from when 1st asked a plate of prawns). Then there was a large table that came late (also had the degustation menu) and to catch up our meals coming our were delayed.

    Absolutely wonderful food from the cold sashimi to the waghu meat. We had the set menu at $70-00 each. Perfect size for us - didn’t have us leaving hungry or over full

    We where surprised that the initial service was inconsistent with meals arriving before drinks. Until we asked where was the drinks which then mostly came out on time (sake package) . The food was amazing and due to the staffing changes and covid reshuffling, this we hope runs smother than when we visited. It’s is well worth trying and the food is very good. I think we hit a bad night

    The service was just amazing. The staff are so professional and well trained. The seafood was amazing. I found the meat was overly seasoned though. I would definitely recommend.

    Amounts served too small. The lamb was too fatty and the meat was too tough to eat .

About the restaurant

Meet Yamagen Japanese Restaurant, the hottest new Izakaya on the Gold Coast.

Blending old school kitchen samurai skills with culinary innovation, Yamagen reinvents a traditional Japanese izakaya with a stylish and innovative twist. Spanning three spaces (the bar, table-seki and sushi counter) there's something for all tastes and occasions.

Offering a long list of craft beers, top-shelf sake, Japanese whiskies and cutting-edge cocktails, the bar is the perfect place for the thirsty to start and finish their evening.

Menu highlights include Sashimi Tacos and Master Kobe Wagyu MS9+ straight from the kushiyaki grill, table-seki is the restaurant's main dining area and the best place to take advantage of the full Yamagen experience.

With a limited capacity, the sushi counter is Yamagen's exclusive dining space. Here, guests experience an authentic omakase - a stream of market fresh sashimi and sushi, as well as delicate share plates, like Yellowfin Tuna Tartare - expertly selected by the chef.

Regardless of where you start or finish, Yamagen embodies true Japanese omote-nashi - the art of hospitality. It's all about exceptional food, an electric atmosphere and an interactive dining experience.

This is stylish and innovative izakaya dining that will transport you to the vibrant back alleys of Tokyo... so get ready for the hustle and bustle.
