Not a very busy restaurant but they were friendly and the food was very nice we may go back next time we're in the area.

I have been there several times in the past week and food was ok but went there today and it has completely changed and the food had absolutely no flavour and my meal went from $13.50 to $16 and the quality of the food was rubbish, I won't be going back as not only is it not worth it the... More

I've been coming here for more than 12 years, menu and prices have barely changed. Great value and tasty, simple favourite Japanese dishes. When i come here i feel like I'm in a very authentic hole in the wall eatery anywhere in Japan. It's very authentic and not in the least bit fancy. But for a family meal it ticks... More

I really enjoy the Special Lunch Menu for $5,50! Specially when I can take Tonkatsu with rice, mini salad and misso soup! :)

Super authentic Japanese restaurant hidden away in Surfer's Paradise. Have eaten here many times and compares with the quality and friendliness/experience you would get in Japan. Chirashi Sushi is a go-to dish, always a great selection of super fresh seasonal seafood. Get there early to secure a table as they fill up quickly!!

Working in the area, Amimoto is my go to place for consistently fantastic sushi. My favourite is the P Set delicious California roll, egg roll, prawn nigiri & miso soup. They also have a $5.50 lunch special on weekdays!

Its definitely no frills, laminex table top style dining but the food is tasty if unexciting, the portions are generous and reasonably priced for Surfers, where even cheap food can be over priced. The 9 of us were spread over 2 tables and moved around a lot to chat and catch up but that didn't throw the wait staff at... More
