Jupiters’ Kiyomi wins nation’s heart at Restaurant & Catering Awards

Jupiters Gold Coast’s multi award-winning restaurant Kiyomi was awarded the title of Australia’s Best New Restaurant this week at the 2015 Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering National Awards for Excellence.

The property’s hugely popular modern Japanese restaurant was up against tough competition from around the country, with the win further recognition for the team’s hard work and commitment over the past 12 months.

Kiyomi first gained industry recognition claiming a prestigious Chef’s Hat at the 2016 Brisbane Times Good Food Guide Awards and has also attracted world-class recognition, winning a coveted place on the shortlist for the prestigious International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2015.


Serving a modern, yet distinctly Japanese menu crafted by internationally recognised Restaurant Executive Chef Chase Kojima, Kiyomi has been labelled by many as a cutting-edge dining experience.

The restaurant celebrates the act of shared dining with an ‘Izakaya-style’ menu and a beverage menu including a wide variety of Japanese tap and bottled beers, sake, shochu cocktails and Japanese whiskies.

Managing Director Queensland Geoff Hogg said the national award win was the icing on the cake, in what has been a phenomenal year for the Jupiters’ team.

“We wouldn’t be where we are today without our dedicated team members who continue to ensure we provide exceptional service and supreme quality for our guests,” he said.

“With our 30th celebrations next month and $345 million transformation well underway, it’s an exciting time not only for the property and team, but for the Gold Coast as well.

“It’s been incredible to see such great results from our new dining experiences over the past 12 months and their success will continue to serve as the catalyst to propel the business forward into future success.”

The Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that recognises exceptional service and culinary talent across Australia. The Awards have been designed to recognise and promote industry best practice.

Jupiters Gold Coast’s success at the Restaurant & Catering Awards is yet another precious jewel in the crown of the multi-award winning property which is currently undergoing a $345 million transformation, including a fresh new exterior look and a new poolside experience.

When complete the redevelopment will also see the refurbishment of the property’s almost 600 hotel rooms, a new six-star luxury hotel suite tower and an array of contemporary restaurants and bars.
