The men enjoyed a shared hot pot where the ingredients kept coming and coming. They felt a little rushed by the waiter. Coasely chopped vegetables came with everything eg Agadashi Tofu and weren’t particularly interesting. Nice not to have tables crowded too close together. The Yuzu flavoured sparkling sake was a highlight. Waiter was very attentive. Good but not great experience.

Our friends from the coast took us to Itoshin for the first time. What a fantastic experience. Chris did the ordering as I know nothing about Japanese food. We had a great selection of beef and seafood dishes as well as the pickled vegetables. The food was awesome, the service was second to none. I would highly recommend Itoshin Japanese as it ticked all the boxes and great value.

My wife and I went here last week. The restaurant was very busy and we sat at the counter, which was good as we could watch the chefs at work. I have never had Japanese before and my wife had only had it once previously. We were a bit in the dark with the menu as it only states the cuts and style of cooking of the meat, we didn't know if you had to order extra sides or if the meals came with them. We asked the waiter and whilst he was very efficient he couldn't really help us with our specific questions about the menu. So we winged it and has a share plate of Beef Teriyaki which was excellent. The wife had an Udon noodle soup and I went with the Panko Pork fillet, both were good. The restaurant allows BYO wine which is always a bonus.
Overall we left happy and full, but next time I would like to try some more exotic Japanese food.

Itoshin is a staple for us here on the Gold Coast. A family favourite and a place that we frequent enough that the staff know us (and our orders) quite well. You simply can't go past the value for money when you order their banquet meals.

The sashimi is fresh and tasty, the beef teriyaki - I've never had a softer piece of meat. Just delectable. Then to finish off with their green tea ice cream is the best way to end a huge Japanese banquet. Light, refreshing and not too sweet. Perfect.

The service is always friendly and prompt. They really know how to make their food the star of the show and are always more than happy to help with any little thing.

Had visited this Japanesee restaurant a good number of years ago. Revisited with a group of friends who arranged this dinner.
The food has remained very good with the usual suspects of sushi, sushimi, tempura and various chicken, pork and seafood dishes available. The food was fresh and tasty and servings reasonably generous.
Our table ordered various dishes and all were complimented on. Prices are reasonable.
Service was helpful and professional.
The restaurant is BYO only but it is fully licensed.
Would certainly return.
