Niji Restaurant and bar

Having not tried the signature degustation menu, this review is silent on the matter. We made selections from the a la carte menu - miso, Niji garden salad.

Niji Garden salad - not your regular greens!

The garden salad was light on the tongue with the mugi miso dressing the perfect complement to the avocado, mixed greens and tomato. Teriyaki with steamed veggies was delicious and not as sweet as some of the imitation at other establishments – what a relief. Tempura veggies were crunchy and light as all good battered morsels should be, with garden goodness including mushrooms, capsicum, potato and pumpkin. Gyoza was tasty and the wagyu kushiyaki melt in the mouth.

Foodie Highlight: poopcorn prawn – crunchy tempura battered prawns rolled in yuzu, spicy mayo and chives.

Gyoza madness dressed beautifully.

Accompany your selection of dishes with Japanese beers like Orion, Kirin or Aashi. If you prefer the local hops there is also Lord Nelson for $8-9. Wines by the glass come in at $9-$15 and cocktails are $16-$19. Your basic tequila, gin or vodka are between $8-$16.

Pro: Traditional Japanese and quite an extensive menu. Open for lunch bar or evening corruption.

Creeper: These dishes designed to share can easily mean the bill can sneak up on you. Our bill came in around $50 per head with beers.

Quality not quantity coupled with great hospitality. Head to Niji for a rainbow of Japanese flavours.
