Full disclosure- I have only ever visited Riki (previously Koh Ya) for lunch, but I LOVE it.
It is 100 % authentic Japanese. We're so lucky in Cairns to have access to great (and cheap!) Asian food, and Riki is up there with the best of them.
I was disappointed to find that the restaurant had changed hands, however after re-visiting I can happily confirm that the lunch meals are still delicious and cheap! Most under $12!!!
They have great staples like katsu don, Japanese curry and noodle dishes.
One draw back has been the waiting time for food, if you don't stay on top of things (i.e. order quickly) it can take a little too long. Try it!
