Finally a traditional Japanese curry restaurant has opened on the Gold Coast! Kawaii Japanese Curry Restaurant is a very small, cute (exactly what Kawaii means in Japanese – cute) restaurant located in the The Centre Arcade in the heart of Surfers Paradise between Surfers Paradise Boulevard and Orchid Avenue. The entrance to The Centre Arcade is directly opposite Waxy’s Pub on Surfers Paradise Boulevard or just a 1 minute walk from the Hilton Hotel on Orchid Ave (walk out side the Hilton and turn left and it is the first arcade you come to).
I love Japanese curry so when I walked past here in the afternoon I knew exactly what I was having for dinner. They have a great range of Japanese curries with vegetable, chicken or beef base. My favourite Japanese curry is Katsu curry and they have some very tasty Chicken Katsu curry. I had it with the chicken based curry sauce and it was ‘totemo oishii kata’ = Very Delicious!
The prices are very reasonable. My chicken katsu curry with chicken based curry was only $12.95! This with a vegetable base is $11.95 or with beef curry is $13.95. You can get double the chicken katsu for an extra $4.
