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 such as miso-glazed toothfish, saikyo miso and hajikami. Delve into teriyaki chicken, local Warrigal greens and charcoal roasted spring onion; or sample the sushi bar, where expertly crafted rolls and plates are prepared using the freshest fish and seafood. Finish with decadent Zen Garden – dark chocolate and cherry blossom pebbles, coconut, sesame oil and yamamomo.
