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.
Fabulous food - the Tofu steak was a revelation.
Wine list could be improved with better quality choices
Easily in the top 5 Asian restaurants in Brisbane. From their Agedashi to Tuna Tataki, the taste is sublime.
Excellent food and service. Perhaps music was a little loud but overall 5/5 star on every single aspect
Lovely food, ambiance and very friendly service, couldn’t fault Hikari
The best Japanese restaurant around 🍤🍣 and our absolute favourite
Twice we have visited Hikari and have not been disappointed. The food is fresh, delicious and some of the best Japanese food I've had. The staff are friendly and attentive. Highly recommend it.
Incredible food - equal best Japanese experience in Brisbane with Honto. What took the edge off the experience was an aloof group of waiters who were running about looking busy but not that attentive. Fix that and this is a solid 5 stars, as the food is absolutely superb and inventive!
good food and atmosphere fairly well priced ..
service was only ok
Great food, great service - will keep coming back - 100%
The food was absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommended.. Soooo good!!!!!!
Food was great - everything super fresh and full of flavor. Value for money is not there though, serving sizes are pretty small.
This is our favourite restaurant of all...we love what Joon and his crew produce with a wonderful selection of fresh tasty meals and even better Sake.
Best Japanese restaurant in Brisbane. Highly recommended and will be back regularly.
Great food. Need to work on service! Had to wait ages for wine
We love Hikari! Their food- especially BAOs are the best !! Although last Sunday when we visited (we usually visit fri or sat night and the service always has been great!!) I hate to say but we really had to wait a long time to be served. Except for that Hikari is one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in Brisbane and love their food 🙏
Delicious food abs great service. Our favourite neighbourhood restaurant.
One of the best and friendliest Japanese restaurants in Brissie. Food is impeccable and service top notch
Great food, service was a little slow but I have to give them a break as starting back up from covid must be hard. Would definitely recommend and definitely go again
Hikari is one of our favourite restaurants in Teneriffe. The food is fantastic, staff very friendly and the wine is great.
We come weekly and happily recommended
The food is amazing, so fresh and tasty. The menu is very diverse and offers some unusual options. Absolutely loved everything I tried.
Excellent food as always, one of my favourite spots
Delicious! Really unique. They were really friendly, the food came quickly and was awesome!
Thanks again for a great experience! Great gyoza!!
Excellent food, reasonably priced. Highly recommend
love your food, good services, fast and highly recomended.
Always outstanding, excellent food, great ambiance. Not pretentious. Just great.
Food was good, service very good, music was annoying and prices too high
If you are looking for the closest thing to authentic Japanese Isakaya, then Hikari is the place to go. The service is outstanding and the food amazing.
Superb and unique food
The food was good and consistent as always. We ordered to share and keep ordering however the second lot of orders we places seemed to take a really long time to arrive at our table.. We were sitting there waiting for 2 bao for over 35 minutes. The food is always good, not amazing but consistent. The menu has definitely decrease with the situation this year, hopefully they'll be able to increase it again in the near future.
amazing food.... amazing service. Cute little hole in the wall ambiance
Always lovely service and great food. Very friendly and welcoming.
Excellent Japanese food, by a Japanese chef, with a slightly different spin on it. Every dish we tried was fantastic. Book ahead, the place is becoming popular and for good reason.
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.
greta meal and staff and divine eggplant
Excellent food, excellent service, will very happily return
Excellent and delicious food, cozy atmosphere, great service
Delicious food and quick service! Definitely recommending to my friends!
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.
