HIKARI, the MOONLIGHT
Hikari’s menu is inspired from “izakaya”, the traditional Japanese pub. We put a twist on izakaya dishes so be enjoyed not only with Japanese Sake but with great Australian wines as well. All Hikari dishes are designed to be shared or be enjoyed individually.

amazing food and venue, hosts were wonderful . the food is authentic and unique with a wide variety to select from. we will be back to keep trying new options. close to the river for a after dinner walk which was a nice highlight. parking was easy and we were able to find the restaurant easily.

Hikari is amazing and so is the service - Hahn (my apologies if name and spelling is incorrect) is so energetic with a vibrant personality that he makes the eating experience wonderful....so friendly! We will be making Hikari a regular eat out for sure.

Food is very good. Waitstaff very friendly. Was very busy, probably because everyone else though it was very good too.

Lovely service, and genuinely fresh and delicious food. We had some very good recommendations given to us and we would happily take those recommendations again. We really enjoyed the small but lovely range of Sake available as well. Great find!

Great atmosphere, great sushi
Really hard to find sushi in Brisbane that's worth the price and this place def meets the match. Not overpriced or too small portions. Was really happy

Had a bit of a hiccup on service where the waiter didn't really understand what I was saying and didn't confirm with me the order but the staff quickly responded and fixed the issue easily.

We’ve dined in Hikari on several occasions. Always happy with their prompt & friendly service. They serve high quality Japanese cuisine like sashimi, sushi, tataki and other favorites like gyoza & tempura. Also good selection of wine, sake & beer. We definitely will be back! Thanks Hikari for looking after us.

Food was excellent as always but last week was the second time in a row I've been there recently and they've messed up my order.

They were lovely about it and no issues having the item removed from my bill but it all felt a bit amateur - which seems strange when it they kitchen is so good.

I'll head back again but I've stopped gushing about the place to friends.

We have eaten at Hikari quite a few times and had excellent service/food so when family asked for 'good Japanese' we booked for dinner. Unfortunately our expectations weren't met. We had to ask the waitress multiple times for water for the table (which was never refilled). We ordered a couple of dishes each (6pax) which were all delicious except for the Karaage. The coating wasn't crunchy or crisp, it was quite soggy and unappealing. Having finished our first dishes, my partner had to go inside and ask for someone to come take our order for additional dishes after sitting with empty plates for a while and no service. We finished the last dishes but we're missing one order. My partner had to go inside again and ask on the status of the dish which we decided to cancel. When the waiter came to the table next with the bill he told us they would be needing the table for the next booking. We would have been finished the meal much earlier if we weren't waiting for service and the item which had to be cancelled. We also had to check the cancelled item had been removed from the bill which the waiter was in no way apologetic for. It was disappointing to experience a lack of service from a restaurant we had previously enjoyed and recommended to others. It will make us hesitant to dine there again.

Great cajjj night out. We had an awesome, fun & knowledgeable waiter/host who recommended some of the menu's best sellers. I would expect menu items to be maybe $2-3 less but otherwise food was delicious and well-cooked. Thanks guys!
