oi is a wanna-be japanese izakaya in burleigh heads. a traditional izakaya is a drinking den with delicious snacks to accompany great drinks in good company. half of what we do is traditional, half is really not, the other half is random

japanese restaurant burleigh heads

our food

traditional izakaya snacks (gyoza), with modern-asian twists (sushi tacos), to classics (sushi + sashimi), and then our signature dish – okonomiyaki. in true izakaya style, everything is designed to share and comes out as it’s prepared. we also have regularly updated specials and an ever-evolving omakase menu (chef’s selection)

our drinks

from those looking for classic japanese options – sake + umeshu (plum wine) – to those just after a cold beer, to cocktail lovers searching for a uniquely japanese inspired house cocktail or highball, and we can prepare all the classics on request too

what’s happening
