If you love Japanese food as much as we do, then you’re going to want to add this new restaurant to your list. Set in an open-air space above West Village, Ippin offers a traditional Japanese dining experience on the second floor of the South Pavilion.
This luxe 140-seater is a trip to Japan without leaving the city, from the aesthetically pleasing Japanese decor to the impressive dishes and sake selection.
As for food, you can expect exquisite eats such as include toothfish, duck breast, wagyu beef, prawn, coral trout as well as lobster popcorn and a small selection of desserts.
While the seafood and meat is mostly sourced locally in Queensland, some of the products come from Japan, to bring the finest and most authentic ingredients to the menu.
The drinks menu has been curated to complement the food offering, so think sake, cocktails, premium wines and spirits.

There are also two open-air private dining areas that can be booked for 10-12 guests. These nooks overlook the stunning greenery of The Common, so it’d be a perfect spot to hang out with your co-workers for Friday afters or for a special occasion with a group of friends.
While the grand opening is still yet to place on April 18, diners can come experience the restaurant in its soft opening phase between April 12 and 17 for an exclusive $118 chef’s menu.
