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.

    Absolutely delicious, one of the best Japanese restaurants I have been to. We particularly liked the salmon sashimi, it was divine. Will definitely be going back there again. Staff were attentive and friendly also and the decor was apt and quaint for the little restaurant that also had outside seating.

    Hikari always serve up the freshes of ingredients. Gyoza, tiger roll, wagyu and teryaki chicken all great. Small but good wine list. Service was very good. Only downside were the number of dogs that people had bought to dinner. Very annoying.

    We had a great experience at Hikari. It's a nice informal setting, more cafe vibe than formal dining. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had the Wagyu Karubi and Salmon Teriyaki which were both excellent. Will be back for sure.

    A bit disappointed for us as this was our first time here. First of all the food was pretty good and tasty but the service was poor. We booked for two and set at a small table. We ordered a lot of food and at some point the food came out way too fast. We told the waitress twice already to slow down the dishes but they end up put down two dishes all at once. The staff seem doesn’t care at all despite the food was actually pretty good. They also mess up the dishes and didn’t put Tuna belly on our sashimi platter. We told the waitress and again she doesn’t seem to care. We asked for another server about our matter and finally it get sorted. It was disappointing to experience a lack of service from a restaurant we first visit. Definitely not worth paying $200 for dinner.

    As always every dish was beautifully presented & executed! Finally tried the chicken karaage. Succulent tender pieces of crispy chicken! Absolutely divine! The specials of day sukiyaki hot pot served with a soft poached egg was a great addition for winter! Thank you Chef Joon and his team!

    Hikari has a wonderfully diverse menu. It unfortunately doesn’t live up to other Japanese restaurants though in regards to quality and servings. The salmon sashimi was tough. The fried chicken Katsu was bland. With the wagyu main being small but delicious.

    Lovely night out, the food was delicious, especially the sashimi. Knowledgeable but unobtrusive service. Agree with other reviews - parking is a pain and the kitchen closes fairly early given our reservation was for 8.15pm Will definitely be back.

    Attentive staff, great food a bit different to most Japanese I've had locally, cafe/street dining ambience the only downside really is the lack of any nearby off street parking, fine if you're local or in an UBER but can imagine it would be difficult on a Friday or Saturday night. Would absolutely go again though.
