Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing restaurant. One of our favourites. The food is exquisite. We have been there often and it never disappoints. Service is fantastic too.

My wife and I went here for dinner on the last night of our recent Gold Coast holiday in December, and it was well worth the visit. We ordered the set menu, and from start to finish we could not fault anything that was served...up. The food tasted absolutely amazing and was well presented, and the drinks were fantastic (tip: if you're a lover of Old Fashioneds, give their one a go; I jokingly made a request to our server after the fourth one whether she could make sure the next one purposefully tasted bad to stop me wanting to get anymore...needless to say, she failed, because it tasted just as good as the other four!) We both agreed though that the service was above and beyond. We had a couple of different servers throughout our visit, but a special shout-out to Nagisa in particular: she was an extremely warm and welcoming presence, was more than accomodating to helping us with our selections, very friendly, and even offered to take a photo of us with the main part of the set menu. We are so glad we had the chance to visit; when we are next at the Goldy, we will be back there again (maybe for even more then just the single visit!) Thank you to everyone at Kiyomi for a wonderful, fantastic, unforgettable experience!More

I booked this place 1 month in advance to celebrate for my friend's birthday. I booked at 8:15pm and clearly mentioned it is for a birthday celebration. Upon arrival at 8:05pm, the table was not ready yet and the host asked us to seat at...the bar for some drinks first. We were fine and we can see that they were trying very hard and finally we could have seated at 8:30pm. Service was good, our server gave us some recommendations for food and we were very excited to try the food. However, I don't think the food was up to standard. 1. I don't think anyone would enjoy a mouthful of crunchy bits of shell with their oyster sashimi. Not a good start. 2. Overcooked scallops, I thought I was having a rubber in my mouth. 3. Tooth fish was salty and the miso favour was too strong and covered the taste of the fish itself. The presentation of all dishes was nice, however, the quality of the food was a bit disappointed as they were charging a premium price for what we get. Service was good but however they forgot the birthday celebration for my friend. For the money Spent (Almost $150 per person), I would say there are other Japanese restaurants in Gold coast area which is better than Kiyomi. No next time to be honest.More

This is a stunning place to eat, however, food is beautiful but slightly overpriced and a little overwhelming at times. Service wasn’t really up to speed, for example, you had to attract wait people to top up your wine, no follow up as to whether...you enjoyed what you were eating. It’s a nice place to eat but go elsewhere if you’re hungry and want your food to be delivered quickly.More

Hands down, the most amazing Japanese food I've ever had! I would recommend all of my dishes that Chef Andrew had organised! It is soooo hard to choose which one was my favourite (I would recommend them all), but if I had to choose it...will be the Sashimi Plate. Every single slice of their seafood you can tell that it was selected and cut to PERFECTION & the oysters was ammmmmmazing. You can just taste perfection! My husband and I aren't from the Gold Coast and rarely dine at fine dining restaurants, so Andrew created and organised these dishes for us to our liking!! The cocktails were fantastic! I would recommend the Japanese whiskey sour & the Blossom cocktail. If you don't like overly sweet alcoholic drinks, then you will love them. Our server Jacob was also very attentive, welcoming and I noticed that he would often look at our table to check to make sure that we weren't thirsty! Everything about Kiyomi and our experience was beyond 5 star. From our impressive chef, Andrew organising our tasting menu, the food, the service from Jacob & the overall experience was fantastic. My husband & I were impressed, & I will come again when I visit on holiday!More

The food at Kiyomi was so yum and I would recommend to everyone. We had the set menu and Ayako was an absolutely wonderful host. From start to finish, she explained each dish, was super prompt with service and even left us with some little...chocolate treats for my birthday. A true professional.More

We made a last minute booking on the day and secured a high table for two in the secluded area which I liked, rather than the more exposed balcony area at the front. Wait staff were friendly and we dined without be asked to wrap...up dinner for the next seating which is always a win in my book. Being vegetarian, the menu was somewhat limited, although what we did have was really enjoyable. Essentially it was a meal made up of more side dishes and a California/vegetable roll. I thought the charred corn dish was a standout and the pumpkin tempura was done well. The wine list was well priced, especially by the bottle, and the sake list was comprehensive. We received a 10% discount for presenting the casino player's card which was handy and overall I thought it was an enjoyable and well priced meal.More

Perfect restaurant for casual and formal occasions. Emma looked after us and she was fabulous. We popped in for dinner on a Friday night and had a wonderful evening. The food is excellent and the cocktail was too.

You can’t fault the food but was the whole dinner for 3 people worth $500? No I don’t think so. The service was ok, nothing was explained even though it was our first time. The servings were really small and we were surprised that everything...came out in a hurry. On top of that, we had to watch children throw their food on the ground - not what we expected and I don’t think we would go back.More

The size of the meals for what you pay is a joke, $68 for wagyu which might have been about 60mm square is just ripping people off and it only came with a green leave (Kale on the top from memory), every dish I saw...come out of the kitchen wouldn't fill a 2 year old so you'd need to order multiple dishes to even feel like you ate anything, not a hope in hell I would ever go back, I had to buy a burger from the casino downstairs straight after our meal as I felt I'd had nothing to eat. For the record, the Wagyu was pretty ordinary.More
