    This is my second visit and didn't disappoint. Food choices are good and they cater for vegetarians, vegans and others. Great drink menu and cocktails.

    Oi Izakaya is always a great place to take family and friends to share in some lovely Japanese fare and a couple of beers. The staff are friendly and helpful and we just love the food

    Food was ok. Definitely not a feeling of a genuine Izakaya.

    I paid a $300 deposit for our daughters birthday (we wanted the booth). First impressions were great, love the artwork everywhere, very kitsch. Service was slow (not just the kitchen which you kinda get at an Izakaya) drinks were slow. Waiter didn't interact much at all. No mention of the birthday I'd booked for. Food was tasty, but have had better value at other Japanese resturants in Burleigh. Overall, it left us with a bit of a 'meh' feeling. It was nice, but .... Won't be in a hurry to go back. All the staff looked like they had better places to be; no descriptions of the food being served, dirty dishes & glasses were left on the table far too long. It was a Sunday, not exactly pumping; plenty of empty tables.

    Food was good. Portions on the small side. Ambiance and surface outside is hit and miss.

    The tuna tataki was beautiful, nicely seared. The wagyu steak was probably a bit overly hyped. It’s nice but not worth $55 to be frank. Would have been better if the fat was rendered and served on hot plate instead. It’s on the warm side. agedashi tofu and fried eggplant were both a let down. The flavor just wasn’t there, both were indeed quite bland to say the least. While the agedashi tofu was drenched in broth, it simply has no flavor. The eggplant, just a bland eggplant.
