INSIGHTS RESTAURANT EXECUTIVE CHEF CHASE KOJIMA AND HIS TEAM HAVE CREATED AN EXCEPTIONAL “IZAKAYA” (THE JAPANESE EQUIVALENT OF A GASTROPUB) MENU. With an internationally trained and renowned chef at the helm of a team of highly skilled staff, The Star Gold Coast’s Kiyomi restaurant remains at the top of its game after claiming the QHA’s Best Prestige Restaurant for the second time in just three years. Restaurant Executive Chef Chase Kojima and his team have created an exceptional “Izakaya” (the Japanese equivalent of a gastropub) menu which features a creative blend of Japanese and Australian flavours, as well as the extensive use of fresh citrus throughout the menu, reflecting Chase’s signature style of using traditional knowledge with creative flair. “The opening of Kiyomi in the first part of our transformation heralded a new era for The Star Gold Coast, raising the bar for restaurants in Queensland and highlighting our investment in the culinary space,” Geoff says. “It is a tribute to the innovation and hard work of the talented team to be recognised in this manner up against the best restaurants in the State.” The Star Gold Coast’s transformation heralds a new era for the property and forms part of crucial investment in the region ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April.
