Goryon-San is a “Hakata Kushiyaki/Yakitori” and “Kakurega” concept Izakaya, originally from Tokyo, Japan.

Goryon-San Sydney aims to faithfully recreate the feel of traditional “Hakata Kushiyaki/Yakitori” where our “Kushiyaki/Yakitori” Chefs are grilling the skewers in front of you with the best care.

A “Kakurega” means a place that you come in and “hide-out”. we are a low-key izakaya that welcomes adults and young generation alike, where serve wonderful Japanese craft beers and a curated selections of sake, wine and cocktails from Japanese perspective.

After the drinks, the broth soup taki Ramen and Gyoza that we serve will be the best ending your visit, warm, tasty and filling.

Our pleasure is to see you can drop by with ease, at times with friends, partners and family, and treat us as a part of your family.

We had a set menu and everything was delicious. I especially loved the kimchi, pork and cheese yakitori and the ramen with gyoza was excellent - perfect broth.

staff are all freindly and the food was amazing. As Japanese national, this place made me homesick. It reminds me of everything about the good Japanese restaurant in Japan.
Presentaion, Politeness and most of all quality of the food. Thank you and we will be back again.

The skewers are extremely flavourful and juicy which is their strong suite. The carb dishes are ok. Fun venue to catch up with friends

Incredible food - flavours were pungent and aromatic. The chefs were friendly and professional and service was timely. The ambience reminded us of our time at a yakitori bar in Tokyo mixed with a modern scene. We had the $89 omakase menu and the selection was very filling and flavoursome! Incredibly underrated and great value for money and truly a hidden gem. Overall, fantastic experience, highly recommended and will definitely be back!

First time here. I found Goryon San through OpenTable. We enjoyed the whole night here. Food was amazing - we tried some new things (lettuce wrapped in bacon) that we’ve never had before. Very tasty! Matching sakes highly recommended. Service by the friendly staffed capped off a great night. Thanks Goryon San and OpenTable! See you next time!

The food and services were both pretty good. This was my second time dining in this restaurant. First time we had a-la-carte menu and tried lots of skewers and a big porridge to share and that got us super full. This time we had the $89 pp set menu which was very tasty too. We spent around $50 more but not as full as my first time. Having said that, their $89 set menu was better value than some of the fine dinning places. So still highly recommended, especially if you like Japanese!

The starer is very good, love it the best. But for the main course, the selection of skewers is not too good. Five skewers in total, for the 3rd and 4th, one is bacon and another is pork belly, that is too greasy. I think as a Japanese restaurant, the symbol of Japan BBQ is Chicken, why not change one as a chicken skewer?

Food was great except the ramen hotpot which is greasy. But the food amount is too small for me and my sis, we didn’t quite had enough. The plum wine is very sweet.

Goryon San is offering two set menus during the COVID-19 restrictions, both non-vegetarian. We opted for the lesser $69 per head option, which was ample food for two hungry guys. The opener included raw wagyu and egg - very tasty, but maybe not for all. Then we had a series of yakitori (skewers), all delicious, especially the scallops and pork belly. Last main was a substantial ramen, not the best I’ve had in Sydney (that prize would go to Chaco Bar at Darlinghurst) but good nonetheless. We finished with mango gelato (green tea flavour also available). The menu changes fortnightly by the look of things and is good value for the quality of the food and the warm and friendly service. Overall, a great dining experience.
