Gyoza – Japanese Restaurant Gold Coast
Geisha Roll 4 (1)


when we opened we didn’t even offer traditional japanese sushi – now it’s probably the most popular section on the menu and we’ve even built a dedicated sushi counter to keep up

タコス tacos

not a traditional japanese item, our tacos are made with nori deep fried in tempura batter then finished with sushi rice and your choice of filling, enj-oi!

Oi Izakaya_May22-15
okonomiyaki – Gold Coast Japanese Restaurant

ギョウザ okonomiyaki

this dish is why we opened oi and still the heart & soul of our menu. a casual, messy dish, originating from osaka, with a variation including noodles arising in hiroshima. very popular in japan but not so well known outside. it’s a heavier dish with lots of sauces – worth a try for the adventurous, a must for those that adore it, and maybe best skipped for those that like to eat light





what’s happening

oi izakaya - fine casual nihonese dining with a pinch of aussie cheek, two cups of winging it, a full large wine glass of class, a bucketful o’ fun, a shitzu-load of tradition, three oz of pure wizardry and a twist of sekuchi, always served in great company enj-oi!
