About Yamagen

Experience the hustle and bustle of innovative izakaya dining at Yamagen in Surfers Paradise. Nestled in the QT Hotel on Staghorn Avenue, this vibrant restaurant blends old-school Japanese tradition with new school Chef invention to dazzle guests with style and speed as robata grill dishes appear before their eyes. Bold red colours and Oriental touches create a buzzing vibe as cooking becomes performance art, with plates like truffle Wagyu tartare, 63-degree egg and nori potato crisps. Delve into crispy skin chicken, local greens, charcoal-roasted spring onion and teriyaki glaze, or sample the sushi bar, where expertly crafted rolls and plates are prepared using the freshest fish and seafood. Finish with decadent Mount Fuji apple – baked apple, parfait, almond nougatine and miso caramel.
