Price Point: Mains from $15 - $25

A taste of Japan, all diced up into a delicious okonomiyaki and melt-in-the-mouth sashimi, Oi Izakaya welcomes you with open arms on the Gold Coast.

Replicating the informal eating style of a traditional Japanese Izakaya, this eatery comes with bar stools, tiny tables and charm in every corner. Effortlessly smart and chic with moody lighting and that unmistakable Japanese perfectionism in everything they do, it's definitely somewhere to go if you want to impress!

Start off with some traditional snacks, like their lotus root fries, karaage chicken and the popular takoyaki (octopus balls if you weren't sure). The big event on the main menu is the okonomiyaki, a savoury Japanese omelette that's constructed from a delicious mix of cabbage, rice flour and your choice of toppings.

Alternatively, keep it really light (and healthy!) with their sashimi that is expertly sliced for your eating pleasure. Needless to say, with a long list of sakes, Japanese beers and Japanese whiskies, you're sure to find the perfect accompaniment to your authentic dining experience.

JAPANESE FOOD WITH A DIFFERENCE

My wife and took in this Restaurant as part of our First Table Experiences and what a light. Accessibility is easy for wheelchairs and walkers. The Restaurant is half way down a little alley way similar to what you would experience in Japan. We did the 3 'round' set banquet and was amazed at the amount of food brought to our table. Some of the food I would refer to as traditional Japanese food, but other dishes had an exciting and delicious twist. The staff were delightful and helpful. Table service was great and prompt. The Restaurant itself was open and had a timber theme similar to the many laneway Restaurants in Japan. The Restaurant offers chef specials which we will be going back to try. There are also dedicated night specials.

The food was amazing, the atmosphere is really chill and the owner was very friendly, he gave us some good tips for the whiskey and spared some time for a little chat. We highly recommend coming here. And the sashimi was delicious!

Amazing authentic Japanese menu. Thoroughly enjoyed the spicy edamane beans, octopus balls and goyzas. The sushi burger was a real treat too.

Yummy food, great service, great location too, tucked away allowing for a little privacy for a more intimate meal. I recommend the karaage chicken and okonomiyaki with pork belly washed down with a bottle Kirin ichiban
