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.
Harajuku gyoza is one of the best establishments in Brisbane. I would 100% recommend it to everyone. It’s fun, entertaining, affordable and has great atmosphere.
Friendly, attentive and fast service by all staff as always.
The food was excellent and everything arrived quickly after ordering. Staff were very friendly. Also a very nice atmosphere despite it being a bit crowded.
