Been there many, many times since 2010. Always made my day eating there. Didn't really want to share this fav eating place of mine because it is already very crowded all the time! I've tried all different rice dishes and they were all great. BBQ is awesome if you don't mind the smell on your outfit after the meal!

Service was lovely, even though we were one of the last tables on a monday night. I have trouble admitting it, but the miso soup out of their machine was pretty much the best miso soup I've ever had-- what a magical machine. The chicken teriyaki rice bowl was lovely and yummy. The ramen was not very impressive, but it... More

Excellent Japanese cuisine and saki, the staff are always friendly and the food is quick so if your on a lunch break you don't sit around for half the day waiting for food. I love the place and go there on a weekly basis

Came across this place randomly when visiting southport. Staff are so kind and my daughter loves the attention they give her. We've order many dishes from here and have never had any complaints. I see reviews that people wait a long time before they can get a table and I understand why, because JFX is the place to be. My... More

I have come to JFX many times. As well as the BBQ the variety is great. This place offers rice bowls, stonepots, salads, soups and bar snacks. The service is very prompt, friendly and professional. You just need to speak clearly and understanding when taking your order to ensure you are not mistaken. There is complimentary miso soup, sauces and... More
