One of the best value in Melbourne

Heard a lot of good reports of this place that I had to try it out. There was a queue of about 10 people even though it was almost 2pm. Had already had a lunch but decided to order the two sushi combo plus miso for $5. You had a choice of any sushi roll and they even cut it... read more

Not only is it most likely the best value lunch in Melbourne - it's possibly the best sushi in Melbourne too. Big call I know but it really is. $5 for 2 rolls and a miso that's super tasty and super fresh - can't beat that! I've been coming here for a few years now - walk across town for... More

Two rolls (with a huge range) plus a tasty miso soup all for $5.00! Make sure you have 10 mins to line up because it always goes out down the laneway but the line is there because everyone knows its delicious, so worth the wait.

A busy restaurant and a range of positive reviews brought me in for a quick lunch but I was very let down my the meal. I had a vegetable tempura bento box of which the tempura, rather than nice generously cut pieces of vegetable in a light tempura batter, was a mix of grated veg pressed together in a stodgy... More

This place is a bit Soup Nazi-esque --- the queue is very formal, the staff don't smile and you'd better know what you want when you get there (or you'll annoy both the staff and the other patrons!). It's all totally worth it though as the sushi rolls are some of the best and cheapest in the city. You can't... More

This is one of the best I have come across so far for a quick and cheap sushi lunch. The sushi quality is by far the best for $2.50+ per sushi roll range restaurant/bar. Beautifully done, the salmon rolls that I had is properly prepared with even salmon in the whole roll. If dine in (NB: limited seats and crowded),... More

Sushi Monger offer great deals for lunch, there's always a queue to get in the tiny doorway but well worth the wait!! Who can go past $5 for two sushi rolls and a Miso soup and its delicious :)

Going here for lunch at least twice a week I can say that this is a great place. Cheap fresh and always friendly staff. Quite busy between 12-2pm but after that you'll get your food in seconds

This has to be the best value and highest quality sushi in Melbourne. From a tiny, frantically busy kitchen they produce wonderful sushi, sashimi, bento boxes, traditional cooked Japanese dishes and excellent nori hand rolls. Cash only, no credit cards, and seating available at just a few small tables inside and outside in Causeway Lane. At lunchtime, Melbourne office workers... More

This has to be one of Melbourne's best value lunches. Quick, inexpensive but always thronged with people and requiring you to queue. Don't give up, service is fast and the food excellent. It's a regular haunt when in the City on business.
