Just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last eight weeks, the all new Yamagen is now open! A hero of the Gold Coast dining scene for over 30 years, Yamagen is now sporting an entirely new look, approach and dining concept – along with a all-star culinary team.
Blending old school kitchen samurai skills with new school chef invention, Yamagen reinvents a traditional Japanese izakaya with a stylish and innovative twist. Spanning three unique spaces, Yamagen’s culinary journey has been carefully crafted with some of the finest Japanese chefs Australia has to offer.
Yamagen has welcomed Executive Chef, Adam Lane to the helm.
Joining the team from The Star’s Kiyomi Restaurant, Adam has comprehensive and star-studded resume steeped in the art of Asian cuisine.
From his time in Sydney at Sake, Sushi E and Tetsuya’s, to cooking alongside Nobu Matsuhisa at the starred Nobu and with David Thompson at London’s Nahm, Lane was the final cherry atop Yamagens grand reopening.
“I love the lightness and delicacy of Japanese cuisine, and I really enjoy the challenge of mixing ingredients that you wouldn’t usually think of putting together – finding the perfect balance of flavours is what keeps our work exciting,” said Adam Lane.
“I am thrilled to be bringing this to Yamagen and we will constantly be innovating to bring new and exciting dishes to the menu – Yamagen will always excite and challenge the palate.”
Adam is supported by longstanding Sushi Master Shintaro Kosugi.
