Average. Wanted the $40 wagyu special for one but this was refused ?? Ended up with $50 BBQ special each. They assured me the meat we were served was wagyu but must have been a cheaper cut as no fat on slices and very bloody meat! Partner enjoyed the novelty of cooking food at table. Once is enough for me

Really enjoyable dinner and evening with a friend and ex colleague and his partner at this long established restaurant. My fellow diners each had a great value 3 course set menu at $50 pp. I wasn't hungry enough for all that food - and there was a lot - serving sizes substantial! I had two courses - main course and...

Itoshin has survived for many years (30?) in the fickle world of Gold Coast restaurants simply because the lovely family who own it has consistently served such high quality food. Fantastic wonderfully fresh sashmi, excellent sushi, great roast duck & chicken teriyaki, for example. All excellent.

Went for dinner and really enjoyed it. The sashimi was the standout for me but the tempura was also delicious. The restaurant interior has a traditional feel and the service was decent. Definitely worth a visit.

I find the food in the Gold Coast is consistently dreadful. Year after year I am reminded of this each time I go out to eat. Why can't they step things up here?! Seems the Gold Coast is back in the 70's for quality. Anyway, last night made a wonderful change! We found out about Itoshin through Instagram, saw some... More

One of the best down to earth Japanese places on the Coast, always happy staff and always great food and service. We often have the Banquet and sometimes it doesn't look like it's going to be enough food it always is, even for a big appetite. Been going here since it opened and before when it was down at Miami... More

We had an excellent experience the food choose and selection is first class. We select several items starters mains and desert all were equally flavoursome. The Japanese beer on tap was a great accomplishment with the meal. Service was just right and staff are handy with recommendations. Would recomend
