Cuisine: Japanese

Think fresh Japanese cuisine and authentic sake at Kin!

Located in the heart of Hobart, Kin Japanese BBQ is the creation of Head Chef Casey Burns, who was inspired by the Japanese style of cooking.

Specialising in the freshest seafood and local meats, as well as beautiful sake and fresh cocktails, they offer a creative twist on authentic Japanese cuisine.

Using a traditional Yakitori grill, the kitchen serves a menu of flavoursome ‘sticks’ and sides. Mix and match dishes of marinated chicken wing, Tasmanian octopus and tender wallaby, perfectly complemented with a side of seaweed salad and miso.

Tucked down Macquarie Street, Kin Japanese BBQ is a hidden gem in the Hobart dining scene.

Reviews

We had such a wonderful experience at Kin BBQ from the welcoming and warm service. The cocktails were awesome where they have a small bar table. We had a yuzu margarita and murasaki negroni which gives you a refreshing feeling. Both cocktails are highly recommended! We did the 6 course feed me option and each plate was presented beautifully, with a delicious combination of flavours. My favourite was the grilled scallops + yolk. We were so glad Kin BBQ was highly recommended to us and we will definitely be recommending this to others!

We had the most amazing food at Kin.
Opted for the feed me option each of the 6 courses were cooked to perfection. Our kids loved it too they are 3 and 5 years old and the restaurant was very accommodating.
We will be back for sure. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Everyone must try this hidden gem. A small restaurant with a huge heart. Service was so friendly, food was amazing. The mix of flavours the fresh produce and the presentation was 10/10. There were 3 types of sake and the cocktails were amazing. If you want an experience to remember try Kin Japanese. I will definitely be back again and again.

Couldn’t have had a better experience. Best meal I’ve had out for a long time. Friendly staff and welcoming ambience. A small intimate restaurant. We had the Feed me options both vegetarian and non vegetarian and shared as I read a previous review which was very complimentary. Both were excellent. Beautifully presented, tasty and with the many courses, ample food. Would certainly recommend Kin Japanese BBQ to anyone.

Beautiful meal. We had the 5 courses and every one was well presented and delicious. Had one of our party who didn’t eat sea food and they adapted her menu to suit without any problem. A small restaurant that really impressed.

I couldn’t have asked for a better evening at Kin Japanese BBQ! The food was delicious and service excellent. 6 delicious courses were devoured by me and I could even share some with my guests! Can’t wait to return and try more from the menu!

My husband and I opted to visit Kin restaurant recently on the first table offer. This being the first time we have tried First table we had some trepidation of the unknown. We need not of been concerned! We were greeted with smiles and we left with ourselves smiling.We chose the feed me menu and struggled to finish the exquisite food that Casey the owner operator slash Chef so painstakingly and thoughtfully put together. This put together with the attentive service of Steph made a delightful experience of Japanese food to be remembered for some time... please do yourselves a favour and visit this very tiny and lovely restaurant.

We loved the 6 course "Feed Me" menu - all meals were fresh, just the right size, presented beautifully and tasted amazing. The strawberry dessert was beyond delicious, could easily have had another bowl. Will definitely be back to this hidden gem in Hobart

Casey Burns does a spectacular job sharing his vision of Japanese inspired BBQ and cocktails. Both the food and cocktails were visually appealing and absolutely delicious. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. A cosy venue with a well considered menu. Casey's passion is clearly about precision and quality rather than extensive sub-par offerings. Highly recommend!

Great experience with wonderful food and service. Also good value for money. We would particularly recommend the scallops, octopus and Kara-age. Not to be missed!

What could be better than 6 courses (as part of the "feed me" banquet) and some quality sake? Not much, and we really enjoyed the variety and friendly service at Kin. Seafood and other delights presented beautifully by the chef. Will be back!

Cosy little spot close to the wharf. Food was cooked perfectly - especially the quail. Nice to have a good yakitori spot (or any Japanese food in Tassie) for that matter. Could have a broader range of flavours across the dishes but not particularly pressing in this case. Would come again for sure. :)

This is a 'small plate' restaurant, and every dish we tried was deliciously different from the others. So good, that we ordered more, and ended up with slightly too much. . Service was excellent, and the food was delivered in good time. Keep an eye on this young chef, he may be destined for big things at the rate he's going!

We had a great amazing dinner at Kin BBQ. This place is a new addition to Hobart and in a wonderful location. I should say, this place serves one of the best bbq in the town and is very reasonably priced. To start with, we ordered a Cocktail which was fabulous and diferent variety of BBQs. The main highlight of the day was fresh Scallops BBQ. It was such a divine feel as it melted in our mouth and so tender and juicy. Cooked to perfection. The chef is really talented and put lot of effort to make each of the order to its perfection. The Quail and Gyoza was yummy too. I would definitely go again and is highly recommended place for any foodies who wants to taste & feel the real BBQ. The dessert was also very tasty, overall we had a great evening and thank you to the Chef and his partner to make everything in a perfect way. Simply loved the food, place and host :-)
