Sokyo restaurant to open at The Star Brisbane

Having been awarded hatted status in Sydney, the Japanese restaurant will also open at the new Queen’s Wharf precinct in August.

Japanese fine dining will open as part of The Star Brisbane with Sokyo to welcome diners in August.

The restaurant will be headed up by Executive Chef Alex Yu who has worked for Sokyo in Sydney and most recently at Yugen Melbourne.

Yu developed his signature style at Sokyo over eight years, becoming known as the “Sashimi Florist”, due to his platters of premium fish adorned with delicate floral arrangements. 

“Returning to The Star where my culinary career flourished feels like a homecoming, and to have the opportunity to share Sokyo’s philosophy with Brisbane is truly a privilege,” Yu said.

“I have collaborated with the highly experienced culinary team to curate a menu that harmonises tradition with contemporary flair, paying homage to the fundamentals of Japanese cuisine whilst remaining ahead of the gastronomic curve.

“Each element is meticulously considered, from the smallest measurement to the exact angle and temperature.”

The Star Brisbane General Manager Food & Beverage, Dustin Osuch, said Sokyo will provide an elevated experience at Queen’s Wharf precinct. 

“We are thrilled to bring Sokyo to the Brisbane market after the unprecedented success of Sokyo at The Star Sydney and Kiyomi at The Star Gold Coast,” he said.

“Brisbane is rapidly evolving into one of the nation’s top dining destinations and Sokyo will bring an exciting and unexpected flavour to the city whilst staying true to Brisbane’s unique culture.”

The Star Brisbane has announced a number of venues in recent months that will form part of the $3.6 billion precinct including a live entertainment venue, sky deck and Luke Nguyen restaurant.
