When considering the best Japanese food in Brisbane, it can be awfully easy just to limit oneself to the myriad great sushi bars to be found in the city. No self-respecting Japanese person, however, would leave it at that. The humble izakaya is an essential part of the culinary tradition in Japan and to experience a little something of that culture, head to Harajuku Gyoza. They offer – unsurprisingly – gyoza dumplings from their many outlets around the city, and if you want to taste some of it in South Brisbane then head to Grey Street, just outside South Bank station. You won’t regret it – unless you forgot to book ahead, of course. Reserve a table today.
Though sushi, sashimi and nigiri make the headlines when one thinks about the best of Japanese cuisine, it is not to these dishes that one turns when looking for a hearty and filling meal at the end of a long day. Do as the salarymen and women do and set a course for the izakaya, and if you’re looking for the best izakaya in Brisbane, then look no further than the dumpling paradise known as Harajuku Gyoza. Their outlet on Grey Street – right by South Bank station – is the best bet if you’re in South Brisbane, and when you arrive you’ll be overwhelmed by the range of Japanese delicacies available.
The dumplings are the star of the show at Harajuku Gyoza, and they come with a full repertoire of fillings. The chefs at their Grey Street outlet can cook up dumplings with pork, chicken, duck, whole prawns or veggies, and can poach or fry depending on your preference. They’re not content with just gyoza, however: try the huge range of don and ramen noodles, the chicken katsu curry or a pork belly katsuni. Whatever you make your choice at Harajuku Gyoza, you won’t be disappointed – unless you fail to book a table and end up missing out altogether. Secure your seat online and mosey on over to South Brisbane for a Japanese feed to remember.
The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. The food was served very quickly after being ordered and was delicious. The gyoza were the best I have ever had. I was very impressed by the variety of gyoza that was available. I tried one type that I have not seen anywhere else and I really enjoyed it.
The food was delicious, the service was great, and the price was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Southbank parking is also very close by.
Great food and awesome friendly staff. We brought some friends visiting from overseas and they loved the food, restaurant styling and atmosphere. Will be back
Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere. Booking was easy and seating was perfect. Restaurant can get a little loud, but it's all part of the experience of Harajuku...could just sit and graze the whole menu all night!
Harajuki Gyoza has a great atmosphere and delicious food. When you enter the restaurant, you're greeted with high energy, friendly staff who provide quick service. The gyoza are done beautifully and there are a decent selection of beverages to choose from. Amazing time.
As always great food and friendly service. We've eaten at the Valley and CBD restaurants but this is our favourite. Prefer the old menu as it had a greater mix of food choices now it almost all chicken, good thing we like chicken.
Good visit, were seated very quickly. There was some confusion on what was available and what was not. we orders some items, and were later told they were not available, but then were served it. Ordering was confusing, and difficult to keep track of what was ordered. It would be good if they had a similar system to Yum Cha restaurants.
Popular restaurant, hence it's best to make a booking first. The gyoza are delicious! I advise to try them all. The Pale Ale beer on tap was also delicious. Will be returning to the restaurant again in the future.
Friendly staff, great food and fun atmosphere! It was nine-year olds choice of restaurant for her birthday dinner, staff sang her happy birthday and brought out a candle in ice-cream as a treat. Thank you!
Delicious food, great atmosphere with funky decor and the Sake is Yum. Not overly expensive and good value for money. I would recommend for a night out with friends or even with the family. kids would love the desserts.
