Yoko Dining

Brisbane CBD

Yoko Dining is a stunning 2 level waterfront Japanese restaurant and bar in the Howard Smith Wharves precinct in Brisbane CBD.

Inspired by the lively izakayas and music bars in Tokyo, Yoko Dining is a well-priced laidback Japanese bistro-style restaurant for everyone from families to friends and couples, from the owners of neighbouring Greek bar and eatery Greca.
