So yummy

I've never eaten Japanese before due to the lack of vegan options. This was amazing. We had the biscoff desert and a chicken don of some sort. Will be back

Amazing, one of the best restaurants on the Gold Coast!

My partner and I have tried most of the menu in our few visits to the Gold Coast, we are never disappointed, everything is so delicious! I especially love the vegan version of yakitori, better than any actual chicken I've eaten in my life!

So delicious, will definitely come again when on the GC

While we initially waited a while to be given a table, they made a spot for us outside, which we were informed wasn't available. Such delish food !! We had the desserts, which were also divine. We had 2 mains (pictured) and also okonomiyaki for entree along with 2 plum wines and two desserts for $120.

Pros: Friendly service, Insanely delicious food, Nice vibe

Cons: Had to wait a couple of mins to be seated

Amazing Japanese food

Fresh! Very creative dishes that I haven't really had before! I liked the Katsu and Karaage. The gyozaholic was a bit overrated. The staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome!

Delicious Japanese food

The food at Izakaya Midori has always been good and since it changed hands with a couple of new menu items and improved service has us coming back a couple of times a month. Have taken non vegan family who wouldn’t consider vegan food and their minds and taste buds were blown right open, very impressed. With a bar, tasty food and a bit of ambience it’s a definite restaurant to take friends and family.

Big wow!!

So frigging good!!! It's honestly so amazing to get to eat some of my childhood favourite meals here - most of which I haven't had since going vegan! The food came out fast and the menu had a nice selection of dishes. All food consumed was yum - deffs give this place a visit!!!

The hunger

Wonderful food- it was delicious. But we did wait longer than an hour for our mains. They were doing a lot of uber eats and takeaway, and it didn't seem like any food was making it to the floor.

I would come back, but not at a busy time. The wait was a bit much.

Cute little restaurant

Super cute place, the staff are so lovely ❤️

The food… is incredible! Delicious, fresh, surprising. Prices are average and the food is definitely worth it!

Can’t say I’ve had anything on their menu I didn’t love!

Pet friendly too! They quite often have vegan dog treats which is a lovely touch.

Pros: Amazing, inventive food, Lovely atmosphere and staff, Well priced, lots of parking

Friendly staff, decent food

Great food, bit pricey for the quality

There are many Japanese restaurants around the area so for “good” Japanese the benchmark is pretty high.

They do well in providing an authentic vegan Japanese experience, the staff are super friendly

The breezy and considered setting and the excellent service draw you into a Japanese vegan heaven. Every dish was amazing and there’s lots of gluten free options too.

Beautiful food

We had the miso soup and 2 don dishes. Fresh salad and tastes all around. The catsu and teriyaki tofu were delicious. Great service as well.
