A shame this great venue has closed. The family loved it and was an interesting and tasty twist to regular Japanese which you can get on every corner of Neutral Bay.

we always had a great meal at Japaz, everything was always so fresh and you could feel the staff were all happy there. Was devastated when we arrived at the front door for a fresh food fix and saw that it's gone :( Locals really out to support their favourite local restaurants more so we don't see this happen to...

The indignity of it - one of the cities better Japanese restaurants replaced by a burger and coffee bar. For years, Chef Hiro had delivered a wonderful style of fusion , a Japanese tapas style that delivered quality with a wonderful value. He had integrity with his food style and while I didn't always like every dish, always loved the... More

The chefs here take enormous care to bring you beautiful, innovative Japanese food and are happy to cater for any dietary requirements. The open kitchen let's you see the studious nature of the cooking and the glow of content on the chefs faces with the odd cheeky smile is a joy to watch. This relaxed sense of care and quality...

Japaz Neutral Bay is great!! The food is absolutely delicious, I'm sure this will be my new favorite place to eat. The gyoza is delicious and their other meals are very inventive, zesty and downright divine. Went last night when unfortunately for the poor chef he was doing ALL of the work - I assumed the others had all called... More

Still not sure why but the experience isn't what it used to be - it has been a favourite of mine for years but the specials , e.g 2 diners with a tasting menu for $78 for both don't give a chef a chance of showing what he is capable of. Took a business colleague recently and we enjoyed the... More

Whilst I appreciate the concept behind Japaz, unfortunately my experience with my family was a huge letdown. Service especially was haphazard - for example bringing out rice about 25 minutes before my main, Pork Katsu. Should really be logical in truth as to the order of things. My Stepfather and Mother had ordered two tasting menus, but were let down... More

There were four of us on a Friday night, and the restaurant was not at all busy, there was hardly anyone there - bad sign number one. We decided to try the Taster Menu at $49.00 per person. The staff were not at all engaging, and didn't explain the dishes, just plonked them on the table (their English was very... More

The first time I went here with my daughter several years ago, the waiter was not Japanese or Spanish, but he was able to help us with our choices and every dish was fabulous. We raved and later I took another couple. The experience this time was a little disappointing but still good. I returned with a friend recently and... More

I'm not much of a salad person and I found that most meals were salad based, I settled for the 1 non salad dish they had (chicken special) and found it fresh & tasty. I don't feel the last reviewer has given a fair account as I'm sure the owners would have offered a replacement meal, however, there is always... More
