Japanese Yakiniku Restaurant Nikaido

Japanese Yakiniku with a traditional cypress interior!From high grade wagyu to Aussie beef, you’ll find a huge array of meats at a great price. The flavours of the meat are enhanced with the Nikaido miso sauce or salted sauce, which have been refined through many trial and errors. These sauces bring out the umami of the meat! Accompany your BBQ with sushi, sashimi, and tempura side dishes. The menu is rounded out with a carefully selected number of izakaya style dishes.

When it comes to Japanese style BBQ, the heat source and grill plate are hugely important, so you’ll find a more than satisfactory set up at Nikaido. Our grill plates are made in Japan and specially fitted to meet Australian standards. The meat is cut to just the right thickness to ensure it cooks optimally on the grill.

Dine in luxury as our tables and interior are made out of Japanese cypress wood. This wood was specially ordered from Japan just to add that touch of excellence to your dining experience. In Japan, cypress is considered to be an especially beautiful material, with a graceful finish that allows you to relax while eating and truly enjoy the food.

With 100 seats ranging from night views, large tables, and private rooms, Nikaido is perfect for everything from intimate dates to family dinners. We also accommodate for parties and celebrations.
