Misono, formerly Benihana, offers a truly interactive Japanese dining experience that is inspired by the bustling streets of Harajuku. The venue provides a laneway of options within the space including an intimate Izakaya and live-sushi table, a sophisticated whisky bar with outdoor terrace and, of course, its ever-popular teppan dining experience that may or may not end with you attempting to catch cooked egg in your mouth. Take a seat around the teppanyaki bar and marvel as the highly skilled culinary wizards toss, slice and dice your meal together right before your eyes. Served with miso soup, salad, Hibachi vegetables and a side of showmanship, the extensive selection of teppanyaki banquets have all of your favourite proteins covered including combinations of chicken, pork, prawns, lamb, lobster and steak. Finish your Japanese feast with a sake affogato, a sip of rare Nikka whisky or the chocolate and hazelnut semifreddo.
Misono is perched on the third floor of the newly rebranded JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa (formerly Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa), signalling the JW brand’s first foray into Australia. The impressive schedule of works also includes upgrades to each of the 223 guest rooms, public spaces and surrounding restaurants Chapter & Verse and Citrique.
