Suki restaurant opens first venue on the Gold Coast just in time for Summer
The Gold Coast’s first Suki poke restaurant has opened in in Robina Town Centre, just in time for Summer. The healthy and fresh new eatery has been drawing crowds with its delicious build-your-own poke (pronounced poh-key) bowls and sushi burritos since opening its first Brisbane Venue in 2016. Suki poke bowls consist of blending marinated raw fish such as tuna, salmon and kingfish with a plethora of vegetables and dressings. Variations also include a selection of hot proteins including organic tofu, katsu-chicken and sticky beef, all tempting you to stray from tradition. Suki is open 7 days a week from 11.00am to 9.00pm at Shop 1007, The Promenade, Robina Town Centre.
