About Harajuku Gyoza - Albert Lane
There is more to Japanese food in Brisbane than the clinical world of the sushi bar. If you’re looking for something more down to earth, more welcoming and more filling than the slithers of raw fish masquerading as a meal, then you need to pay Harajuku Gyoza a visit. They have locations all over the city that specialise in the food of the izakaya, the Japanese speakeasy and their menu, as the name suggests, is heavy on the dumplings and backs them up with katsu curry, ramen and a fair whack of beers and sake to boot. Book a table at their CBD location on Albert Lane to experience what they have to offer.

There are few establishments as quintessentially Japanese as the humble izakaya, the drinking and eating dens so beloved of the legions of salarymen and women that love nothing more than to pig out and get stuck into the sake at the end of a long day in the office. When considering how to pick up the best in izakaya in Brisbane, then the only name that you need to know is Harajuku Gyoza, where they can keep the Japanese delicacies coming until you can take no more. If you’re in the CBD, then your local outlet is on Queen Street, where they will be more than willing to keep the dishes coming and coming.
Those dishes can take many forms, but realistically it is with the gyoza dumplings that you are going to want to start. The kitchen staff at Harajuku Gyoza on Albert Lane in the CBD can do them fried or poached and filled with pork or chicken, whole prawns, duck or veggies as you wish. On top of that – and if you can still find space – they’ll knock out a top notch bowl of steaming ramen noodles, a pork katsudon or a chicken katsu curry, all to be accompanied by enough sake to put Mel Gibson on his backside. Book a table and get ready for one of the best Japanese restaurants in Brisbane.
Amazing restaurant, very accommodating for my large booking. Not to mention the food was fabulous as always. Would recommend everyone go try out this place
Great service and food. Chicken wings for happy hour with every alcoholic beverage purchased was an added bonus for a Friday night. Would highly recommend
Fantastic experience, great food & great atmosphere in the restaurant. Service was fast & cheerful waitresses :) will definately recommend & return for more gyoza!
Staff were super welcoming and the restaurant was super clean. Food was great and served super hot. Even the trainee on staff was doing a really good job.
ame here for the Japanese soufflé pancakes that are on special for two weeks. It was as delicious as expected and would be nice to add to their menu. The dumplings were good but a bit overpriced, felt more like the portion of appetisers. For sides we ordered Yuzu chicken wings which was ordinary but the agedashi tofu was very very tasty. However the seating arrangements were disappointing. The two-person tables were probably only 15cm apart and it gave no privacy for conversations at all, not to mention the misbehaving kid sitting beside. The table was small, round plates were too big, sauce bottles were hard to use and too big for the limited space. Green tea was served in plastic cups that downgraded it a bit. Staff chants were very energetic but can sometimes interrupt the dining. However an interesting experience for those who enjoys a vibrant dining atmosphere.
It was really good! The only thing that was surprising was the price of the soufflé pancakes. We pre-ordered but didn't realise it was $16 a plate, which would have been fine if we knew before we ordered six plates. Loved the 3 cheese gyoza, that I will definitely re order. The chicken in the katsu curry was a little tough. Everything else was GREAT! Loved the waiting staff!
If you go to Harajuku Gyoza I HIGHLY recommend getting the sake. It is a massive deal and they make it really fun. I can't remember his name, but the trainee on was amazing. He was extremely fun.
Great atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only thing was that our food took a bit longer than we had expected to come out, especially given that the restaurant wasn't totally full yet. Still had a great time and the food was excellent!
The service was pretty poor. We asked for water and it was forgotten. We asked for a spoon for a child and it was also forgotten. After delivering our meals nobody ever came to check on the table not even once before we left. It was a 5pm booking so we it wasn't too busy for some decent service. The food was fine though.
Went for the Japanese Souffle Pancakes and they did not disappoint. The other dishes we tried were delicious, well priced and well sized. The atmosphere was very lively and we had a fun night with our small group.
Seamless and well organised. I got a call to confirm the number of special pancakes and was told I would get them at 7.30pm and and clockwork they were there. Brilliant.
Service here is always friendly. We went early on a Saturday and it looked like they were a bit understaffed as I could see our chicken karaage was ready but it took a while for it to come to our table.
It was a great place but the service was lacking. We had to walk up to a waitress to get served. When we got the attention of the wait staff we where told they would be back but never returned.
A fun, entertaining atmosphere that is very different and loud! Its definitely an experience and would recommend to all those who want to try something new.
Great service, friendly and very helpful staff. The food was excellent, as usual, and I enjoyed the atmosphere. Thank you for a great night out!
Great atmosphere, awesome service and great food!!! Easy to find in Albert Lane. With plenty to choose from and it takes the Rewardle Card!!! Yay!
A great atmosphere - such a vibrant restaurant with great food and great staff. Definitely somewhere to come have some fun and enjoy your time!
Yummy food. Service was good. Noisy atmosphere. Great plates. A bit longer wait than normal for dumplings but all cooked fresh so worth the wait.
The food was great and everybody was friendly. Would definitely go again. The free chicken wings with a drink was a great bonus. Loved it!
Was lovely food and had a nice time. Well priced. Just a bit loud and was hard to follow conversation on table or even hear waitress repeat order.
