Kiyomi will serve a modern, yet distinctly Japanese menu created by internationally recognised Executive Head Chef Chase Kojima.


After leading kitchens for Nobu in Las Vegas, Dubai, London, Los Angeles and the Bahamas, Chase founded Sokyo restaurant at The Star, Sydney in 2011.

Chase says he loves being creative and cooking with only the freshest produce.

“Kiyomi will centre around the delicious flavour, ‘Umami’,” he said.

“We will be celebrating unique yet simple flavour combinations which bring the natural flavours of the produce to life. It is all about using simple garnishes, simple sauces and simple combinations to create truly delicious dishes.”

The new venue celebrates the experience of shared dining with an exciting food and beverage menu.

With a wide variety of Japanese tap and bottled beers, sake, shochu cocktails and Japanese whiskies – Kiyomi is sure to be hailed as the new meeting place on the Gold Coast.

Stuart Krelle, Director and Designer at Luchetti Krelle, said Kiyomi’s design, which includes a nine metre sushi bar, is inspired by Japanese minimalism, and layering cultural cues with sharp, contemporary detailing.

“You’ll see traditional Japanese motifs but in an unexpected way, such as handmade backlit paper suspended in glass panels within the sushi counter. We’re also using handmade Japanese umbrella-inspired feature pendants from Kyoto,” said Stuart.

Kiyomi will be located on Level 4 of Jupiters Hotel & Casino and is part of the property’s $345 million transformation.
