Each dish is prepared with the utmost care and detail to awe and excite. Our dishes taste just as good as they look; the scent and aroma make mouths water, and every bite is oozing with flavour. At San Kai, we only use the freshest and highest-quality seafood and meat in our wide selection of dishes.

San Kai isn’t only known for its innovative cuisine and great service. Our interior architecture, lights, and decor take you to contemporary mid-town Tokyo. The dishes, vibe and atmosphere give you an authentic and unforgettable Japanese experience.

We are located along Grey Street in South Bank, the premier lifestyle and cultural destination in Brisbane.
