    I took my parents here and the service was fantastic. We were sat at the end of the bar, which was the perfect spot for us to watch all of the chefs in action. The food was incredible, would 100% recommend.

    One of the best Japanese restaurants in Sydney and definitely my favourite! They specialise in yakitori but there is literally something for everyone as there is so much variety on the menu, including a wonderful selection of drinks. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is cosy. For those who like to watch their food being cooked, they have bar seating for you to sit at and watch the chefs cook your yakitori. When you make a reservation, the restaurant writes a personalised note on washi paper with your name on it which is quite cute.

    Visited here for a birthday celebration, the service we received was not the best. We were given the bill and being rushed out at around 8pm even though we had the table till 8:30 pm and there was still empty tables around us. In my cocktail drink, there was a fruit sticker still stuck on the lemon. The food was just average.

    If you haven’t try it yet I don’t recommend this restaurant, food tastes average but the price too much which those charged $150 already and you can spend $150 to lots of restaurant with good service, especially the berry cheese pork skewer is cold, we need to asked for salt and chili powder which nothing on our table even the water, I really doubt the rate is half of fake….

    This is the first time we have returned to Gordon San since 2019 & we were sadly disappointed. The restaurant has rather lost it’s verve. The service was poor, the previous lively ambiance lacking & the food not a patch on their pre-pandemic offerings. The only time the staff showed any real acknowledgement was as we were leaving! We will not be rushing to return.

    Great family dinner organised by my better half celebrating my birthday, and it was such a good choice. We arrived at 5:30pm being the first table, and set on the best seat in our opinion straight up. Great service, friendly sake recommendation and engaging conversation for my 10yo boy keeping the experience entertaining for him. Food ordered was served promptly with great service, along with solid taste, especially the tonkotsu stock based Hakata Taki Zosui was amazing and really filling for us. Great birthday family dinner thanks to the team & will look forward to our next visit for sure.

    I've been to this establishment a number of times now. While i found the experience to be good, there was a noticeable decline in the certain areas. Namely: 1) The Wait staff felt a bit pushy with getting us to load out orders in. 2) There was a general forgetfulness, e.g. 1 order was missed, had to remind wait staff to check on our order after the 1st request and similarly with a carry bag for my take away order. 3) Slightly pricey food. This was compared against my previous visits as those experiences were excellent and i rave about your restaurant to everyone i meet.

    Our first visit since the freedom day. Compared to all previous visits the grilled skewers are still good but a few of my favorite items are now missing on the menu e.g. Sukiyaki wrapped in Wagyu Beef. Pricing increased but portion is getting smaller - Hakata “TAKI-AWASE” used to be $30 it’s now $49 but portion is less. Also service is not as attentive as before. A bit disappointing.

    My wife and I enjoyed everything about the evening including the ease of booking, the service the food and ambience. Our only comment was not about the restaurant but the patrons who seemed more interested in their phone than the food or the person they were with. Great place for casual relaxed dining and excellent staff.

    Food was good and tasty, however service was terrible. Impossible to get staff attention to order, drinks take a very very long time and you have to follow up. Matching saké flights would arrive after you’ve finished the food they were meant to be paired with. Has potential to be great.
