If you’re searching for authentic Japanese food in Brisbane, then don’t just limit yourself to the well-trodden paths between sushi bars. There is far more to the cuisine of the Land of the Rising Sun than slithers of raw fish and wasabi – at Harajuku Gyoza, they’re ready and waiting to introduce you to some of it. Their speciality, you’ll be surprised to hear, is gyoza dumplings – favourites in the Japanese izakaya speakeasies and perfect for soaking up all that sake – and if you take a trip to their outlet on Brunswick Street in the centre of Fortitude Valley, you can get some of the best dumplings in Brisbane. Book a table today.
While the sushi bars may take all the publicity and acclaim in the world of Japanese cuisine, it is not to these establishments that the average salaryman or woman to flocks when the stress of the working day is over. They head to the izakaya, the home of drinking and eating the grand style, with menus that are heavy on the filling favourites, washed down with lashings of sake and beer. If you want to experience the very best of the izakaya in Brisbane, then make a trip to Harajuku Gyoza on Brunswick Street in Fortitude Valley, where they keep the dumplings coming until your appetite is fully sated.
Those dumplings, then, and the myriad ways in which the chefs at Harajuku Gyoza can bring dough wrapped fillings to your table is frankly astounding. Take your pick from fried or poached, stuffed with any one of duck, whole prawns, pork, chicken or veggies. If that isn’t enough, they’ll also rustle up a mean bowl of ramen or don noodles, a chicken katsu curry or even a pork belly kakuni. Whatever you decide upon in the end, the staff at Brunswick Street in Fortitude Valley will be ready and waiting to provide you with some of the best Japanese food in Brisbane – so book today and make yourself comfortable.
We had been to your restaurant a couple of years ago and it was so much fun. As we are all out of town patrons, we decided to see if it was still the same with our daughter visiting from Sydney and wanting to try, "The shouting restaurant!' Well it was just as brilliant! Loud, lots of laughs and of course sake! So pleased it is still the same. Our waitress was fantastic and really threw herself into the theme of the night. We all loved it! Will be back! Thanks for the great night, the wonderful food, the sake, the noise, the laughs and the atmosphere.
Excellent food and fun environment for dinner on a Saturday night. Price was reasonable, about $30 per head including drinks. Recommended if you like Japanese food and want to try something new and fun.
As always, very enjoyable, entertaining and definitely good food. Like how they continue to add new menu items along the way also. Staff always excellent.
