Went here for dinner with two work colleagues on a Monday night. One was a Brisbane local who had heard this place was good. Pretty easy to find. Just a few km from the middle of the city, about a $7 Uber ride. The restaurant...More

We'd previously been to Birds Nest in the West End and thought it was very good so decided to give the Valley incarnation a try...and so glad we did. The yakitori is fantastic, particularly if you venture into the Japanese speciality options like heart, liver...More

Simply fabulous. Our first visit but won’t be our last! The cocktail menu looked so interesting that we went an hour early, sat at the bar and tried the ginger ninja and the dirty geisha! First class cocktails! High quality ingredients and smashing flavours. Dinner...More

Everything we had was really lovely. Our favorites were the chicken thigh and the wagyu beef skewers. We did not have any of the traditional Japanese skewers like hearts/kidneys. The menu is mostly just Yakitori, no sushi’s etc.

This is primarily a Yakitori Restaurant. This means it is not a true Japanese place - no sushi, sashimi, etc here. Yakitori are just chicken skewers and this is what you get. Service is good and it has a fully stocked bar and good wine...More
