About the restaurant
HIKARI, the MOONLIGHT
Hikari’s menu is inspired from “izakaya”, the traditional Japanese pub. We put a twist on izakaya dishes so be enjoyed not only with Japanese Sake but with great Australian wines as well. All Hikari dishes are designed to be shared or be enjoyed individually.

We got the 1kg meat platter and it was definitely high value for the amount. The meat was very good and the servers were nice and helpful!

Was pleasantly surprised with how amazing the food, drinks and service was here. Had just planned a small afterwork drinks catch up with some colleagues and wanted to try something nice. Was a little hesitant as hotel bars are not known for being amazing, but WOW was I impressed with this place. The food was knockout good, drinks were delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back and try out the high tea and other dishes.
